Overview
This action-packed day tour from New Orleans combines two top experiences—a visit to Destrehan Plantation, and a swamp cruise through Louisiana's wetlands. Avoid the hassle of arranging transport, and benefit from having door-to-door transfers included. Learn about the history of a former sugar plantation that dates back to 1787, and get the chance to spot turtles, gators, birds, snakes, and more, on a covered boat tour.

    Destrehan Plantation
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Pick-up begins at 8:15am with a short 30 minute ride to Destrehan Plantation. Transportation is provided by our sister company “Alert Transportation.” The driver goes hotel to hotel for the pick-up service. We ask that you allow us up to 30 minutes for the pick-up which will be curbside of your hotel. While taking the Destrehan Plantation tour, you will be viewing the oldest standing Plantation in the Mississippi Valley that is surrounded by majestic, 300 year old Oak Trees. The house has been beautifully restored to its original glory. The Destrehan Plantation house tour is approximately 1 hour and is given by professional tour guides that will enlighten and entertain you on this trip through history. A Slave Quarter museum is a part of your tour of the plantation grounds. That will give you 20 minutes after the tour to walk around the grounds and take some pictures.

The swamp tour was the best! We didn’t do the airboat and I am glad we didn’t! We did the “casual” boat ride and where able to see tons of alligator from about 12 feet to babies! Came up to the boat! It was so awesome!! I highly recommended it!!!!!

Excellent tour guide and driver, Mary E was energetic and well informed. No gators whilst in the swamp because of the season but would definitely do it again. My new husband and I had a great time.

Recently went on a combo tour with Louisiana Tour Company and it was great! The plantation was just ok but the airboat portion was exceptional. We chose to ride the smallest airboat and it was worth every penny. Rocky was our guide for the afternoon and he did an exceptional
