On this full-day tour, you'll be driven to the Oak Alley Plantation House, then see the Cajuns of the bayou living and surviving in harmony with the swamps. Located about an hour and a half outside the city of New Orleans, Oak Alley is one of the most magnificent plantation tours because of the 28, evenly spaced, huge Oak Trees that go from the river road to the Plantation House. Experience bayou living where here, the waterways are their highways. From the relaxed comfort of our covered New Orleans Swamp Tour Boats, you will drift slowly past a 2000 year old Indian Burial Mound, a Cajun cemetery and Fishing village! You may see the wildlife that made the Barataria Swamps the Crown Jewel of the Louisiana Purchase.


  • Enjoy a day away from the hustle and bustle of the city
  • Family friendly
  • Get up-close to native wildlife
  • All entrance fees included
  • Hotel pickup included
  • Travel by boat and see the sights from the water

This was a wonderful tour! The plantation was beautiful and the food there was delicious. The swamp tour was excellent and the guide, Chaz, gave us many opportunities to see alligators up close and personnal.

The Oak Alley Plantation was a fantastic experience highlighting life on a plantation. From life in the beautiful house to the life of their slaves.The Swamp Boat Tour was great fun and provided a history of the swamp to the flora and fauna in The Bayou and the sighting of the alligators!Both experiences were suitable for all age groups.

My plantation river tour was great very informative the driver was very engagei g overall I had a great time

Swamp tour, complete with alligators in the wild, was a success due in large part by the stories told by our capable and captivating Cajun boat captain. The Oak Alley tour, in turn, struck the appropriate balance between a view of the life and home of an elite 1850s sugar plantation family, and the horrific practice of human slavery that made their lifestyle possible. All was thoughtfully and professionally presented. If you have the time, I recommend this tour.

Enjoyed both places immensely. Great guides in both the beautiful Oak Alley Plantation and Swamp Boat Tour.

I didn’t go on the tour but I booked it for my elderly parents and they said they had a blast and both tours were worth the money, especially with the ease of the pick up/drop off service from their hotel. Thanks for giving them such a nice day to remember.
