Super fun and worth the money! Jim was a great guide. I highly recommend bringing sunscreen and cash.

Our tour guide Jim was extremely knowledgeable, very polite, professional and friendly, our day trip was both educating and fun. Thank you also to our driver Donald who drove us there and back safely on the very clean and very comfortable luxury tour bus. We enjoyed it that much we booked the voodoo cemetery trip for the next day.

Absolutely amazing tour. George was a great driver; Jim an excellent guide and kept us interested throughout the journey. Whilst the plantation wasn’t the biggest house, its history was fascinating and very well put across by the guide (despite the large group size). The highlight was the swamp - Captain Bishop was a real character and we were able to see a lot of wildlife.

The plantation was nice. The highlight of the tour was the swamp boat ride. Spent almost an hour and 45 minutes riding through the swamp. The tour guide was great!! He had the boat laughing. He let us hold and take pictures with an alligator too.

I had a great time. The tour was great and very informative. All of the information made sense and was repeated multiple times by different tour companies, meaning their message aligned.
