Whitney Plantation and Large Airboat Tour
Graham R, Dec 2021 Verified
This was a great tour and a great way to see both the Whitney plantation and boat tour in a day. Brian was our tour guide, and as other reviews have said, was awesome! He was knowledgeable and entertaining and took the time along the drive to show us various interesting things. The Whitney plantation was really eye opening and informative and I highly recommend it for anyone visiting New Orleans. The boat tour was also great and gave a really good understanding of what the swamps are like and we of course saw some of the wildlife :)

Whitney Plantation was closed due to Hurricane Ida damage however, a few days before our departure we were contacted and provided options. We chose Laura Plantation instead and the airboat adventure into the bayou was a hit with our son! Thanks for memorable trip!

This tour was well worth the cost! The history was so important for our family to hear and see. This part of our history is not covered as it should be in schools today. The staff at the plantation and the air boat were fantastic and happy to see us. We saw 5 alligators in the swamp and the plantation grounds are kept in pristine condition. The art work is powerful and a must see. Our driver, Brian, was hilarious! He was very knowledgeable about the city's history. We had lunch at another plantation which was delicious. We were picked up around 8am and returned to our car a little after 5pm. We had a party of 6 and were easily accommodated. It was such a great day!

I had wanted to go on this tour for awhile, working on research of slave history. This included lots of stories and not a glamorize plantation experience. 1 1/2 hr. Was just right. Intro in gift shop was very well done. Loved the sculptures of the children.

So glad I decided to do this tour. Brian was a wonderful guide. He has an infectious laugh and joie de vivre that made this tour very memorable. There are a lot of plantation tours but consider Whitney if you want to learn from the perspective of the enslaved. It was eye opening and so moving. Joy the guide at Whitney was wonderful and I left the tour curious to learn more. For the swamp tour, we got to see many alligators and some loval birds which was very nice. Please consider your options which boat you want carefully.

We had a great day with Brian. We were the only passengers so we had a private tour in a sedan. The guide Brian was knowledgeable and fantastic company with a great sense of humor. He added a short stop at Oak Alley where we had some delicious gumbo, a quick stop in an excellent gift shop and the chance to see the exterior of the property. He pointed out many spots along the way. After the planation we went on to the swamp tour. It was chilly but sunny and we saw two alligators. Better sightings in warm weather. The guide did stop to pick up a snake and we saw many birds. Boat was noisy and MUDDY - do not wear clothes, shoes, purses etc that cant get mud on them

I would definitely recommend this tour, the Whitney Plantation is a really moving and important experience and I am so glad I was able to go and learn more about the history of slavery. The swamp tour was also very beautiful and informative. Brian was a brilliant guide, really funny and with lots of recommendations for things to see in New Orleans. Thanks very much!

We loved our day with crescent city tours and both tour locations. Our guides in both places were informative and moving, and the transportation to and from was second to none. Brian is great company for all of the journeys - Check it out, you won't be disappointed!

Both experiences were wonderful, and our driver was funny and fantastic. Keep in mind this takes up the whole day really, and there may be long periods of waiting for the driver to take you from site to site. Pack food as well!!
