The Oak Alley plantation tour is one of the most magnificent plantation tours near New Orleans because of the 28 evenly spaced, huge Oak Trees that go from the river road to the Plantation House. The Greek Revival home dates back to 1837. Located on the grounds is a restaurant, blacksmith shop, Souvenir Shop and antique farm equipment. Next up is an airboat tour - hold onto your hat! Our New Orleans Airboat Swamp Tour is a high speed adventure that is part tour and part ride. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. Our airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. So, every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife.

While Oak Alley Plantation tour was good, the swamp tour was superb. The highlight of the day was the alligators and the airboat ride. The guide was super informative. Must do tour.

Loved the swamp, our captain Matt was so knowledgeable and made the experience fun, he shared his obvious love of alligators with us,definitely recommend trip.

The plantation was like stepping back into a time we’ve only read about. The airboat ride was fun, interesting, and full of alligators. Definitely the highlight. Be prepared to spend nearly 3 hours in the bus to get to the two locations.

It all started with our bus driver, Gary. He said he’s not typically a guide, but he did a great job and was very interesting to listen to. He was very knowledgeable and made sure the entire group was taken care of from start to finish. Next was the Oak Alley Plantation. Being able to stand in such a historic place was truly awesome. The foundation has done a magnificent job of keeping the entire lot beautiful and breathtaking. All guides at the plantation were professional, friendly, and extremely knowledgeable. Finally came the airboat swamp ride - absolutely amazing! I can’t remember the guides name, but his boat was the Gator Raider and his co-worker, Steve, was a hoot! Rushing around on the water so fast and free was exhilarating! We got to go deep into the swamp and a few of the guides got up close and personal with some of the gators. Overall, this excursion is 100% a 5 star excursion and should not be missed!
