Great day trip. Really learned a lot from our guide Gisselle. She was very knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and the French influence.

Experienced the trip with my family from out of town. Renee was a true NOLA native and went way beyond expectations. Loved the plantation tour and actually learned a few things about my home state. Highly recommend.

Would recommend!! I booked online and Isabelle contacted me right away to confirm my booking information. Tour bus was air conditioned and totally clean as well as on time. Isabelle also provides great historical information during our travels around town. Rates are reasonable and would recommend to anyone visiting New Orleans!

It was a fantastic day all around. From pickup at our hotel in the French quarter to the same drop off location. Our tour guide Gisele couldn’t of been any better. She was prompt, courteous and very informative. We spent the day driving to and from our airboat adventure to our plantation tour laughing and talking about all of the relevant and pertinent history of the city. This tour experience was definitely one of the high lights of our trip. Thank you very much Isabell Tours.

So much to do in NOLA, so little time. Tours By Isabel’s half-day combined swamp & plantation tour fit the bill of what we knew was going to be a rushed visit.The best thing about the day was Tours By Isabel itself. They proactively reached out to learn where we were staying and let us know when to expect the bus at our doorstep. Our guide Gisèle was *wonderful* — her French background plus deep knowledge & experience of NOLA were matched by her clear love of the area and her obvious delight in sharing it’s wonder with visitors. Seriously, some guides on tours “phone it in”, but not Gisèle (and I trust other TBI guides). I wish she could’ve been with us for our entire New Orleans visit.The swamp tour was an unexpected thrill, going way above the low bar I set for a ride in a swamp. No mosquitos, other-worldly environment , crazy agile swamp boat doing wild things over wilder “terrain”, and enough up-close gators to be fun & just unsettling enough. The boat itself seemed to be via Ragin’ Cajun, with Isabel handling transport / booking / waiver logistics etc, beyond the value-add of her transportation & insightful commentary throughout.The brief visit to Destrehan Plantation split our group, with some reveling in its history & craftsmanship, others wanting a more clear-eyed focus on enslaved people’s experience there. (The 1811 Uprising exhibit seemed understaffed on the day of our Tuesday visit.) Honestly it was the bes compromise given our half-day time constraint — given more time I’d look for a different plantation requiring slightly longer travel but offering a rigger experience.Through it all, Tours By Isabel were professional, helpful, knowledgeable, charming, connected, and flawless. I hope to visit NOLA again soon, and know I’ll be in good hands with their Sam of local experts & professionals.

This was the best day of my trip. Isabelle picked up everyone in the group on time and provided plenty of fun facts and information. The tour guide for the airboat venture and plantation were first rate experiences. The gators were everywhere we went in the wetland and our operator made the experience so much fun. Warning you will be very close to these marvelous creatures so make sure you are prepared fir this encounter. The plantation was rich with history and presentation of the home was fabulous.

What a fun day visiting a plantation and taking an airboat on a swamp around New Orleans. We got to see and feed the alligators, and even pet one. Our guide made it fun and informative.
