    Destrehan Plantation
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Get picked up at your hotel in New Orleans to start your combination plantation and swamp tour trip, which lasts a bit more than 6 hours. The first stop is Destrehan Plantation. Established in 1787 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Destrehan Plantation remains the oldest documented plantation home in the lower Mississippi Valley. We invite you to travel from the French and Spanish Colonial periods, through the Antebellum grandeur of the sugar barons, to the ravages of the Civil War and the rebirth of reconstruction. You will find yourself immersed in the rich history of Louisiana when French was the language, and the white gold of sugar drove the economy. Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history will intrigue every visitor to the site.

Airboat is a Must Do. The captain really made the experience an overall great time. We even got to hold a baby gator which my lover loved. I cannot wait to bring my other family on this adventure.

My Captain Reggie provided the most magical experience. The way he moved his arms was so sexy. The alligators we saw were a added bonus not compared to his hairy beastful beard. The ticket agents were super nice also. I think her name was Brain...she was able to get us on a bus

Our tour started with a fantastic driver in a first class bus, and the trip was comfortable and pleasant. He was very personable and informative during the trip to and from the plantation and swamp tour. The airboat ride was beyond expectations, it was exciting and informative.
