    The food was surprisingly good and the music was nice. We enjoyed it. The server seemed a tad harried but everything else was pleasant.

    While visiting on Jan 27th we had a fantastic time with Jim and Alton, our driver. We started by visiting the Swamp by boat where we could spot a couple of interesting animals (I won't spoiler anyone). Then we move to this fantastic Plantation named Oak Alley with a fantastic story. Definitively we had a good time, good experience and good learning experience.

    Darren was an engaging, informative tour guide. We learned a lot and really enjoyed the tour. It was nice that he was able to drop us off downtown, rather than back at our hotel.

    Doug is an elite story teller. Would do the same tour again in a heartbeat. Very well planned and communication day-off was great.

    We had a wonderful time on the small group, airboat tour. From arranging pick-up to the execution of transportation to the tour itself, this is at once an extremely well-oiled machine, without feeling at all impersonal.

    Our guide was knowledgable in a way that was learned, rather than studied and had great insight on the landscape, history and future of the bayou. We did see a gator, despite it being cold and overcast, but the highlight of the trip were the surroundings - being shown a strange and beautiful space that is disappearing.

    Our trip was amazing. We were lucky to have good weather but it would have been a great swap tour no matter what. Our captain was very knowledgeable, entertaining and was able to show us so much. He did a great job of showing us around a place that he clearly loves.

    The hotel pick-up was very easy and convenient. We had a great driver who gave some tips on the bus system in the city and was very personable and kind.

    I definitely recommend this tour!

    Jaimie is very knowledgeable and provided us with fun stories and history of New Orleans as well as the cemetery. Tour of one hour is about right.

    Our guide was awesome! The tour itself was a lot of fun and not too long. We learned lots of fun and interesting facts about the city we didn’t know. We would definitely recommend this tour!

    I had an awesome time. The tour of Oak Alley was very nice. We got stuck in a major back up of traffic on way over to swamp ride which was out of the transport control. The swamp ride was amazing. The guide was hysterical. He also let us hold a baby alligator they found in the wild and are raising. It was great all around

    Harris was entertaining and knowledgeable about the Garden District, as well as New Orleans. One caveat - if you have foot or back issues, this tour does involve a lot of standing in one place.
