Great tour. Went to two plantations. Got a great history and information from the tour guide. Also had a great meal at one of the plantations. The swamp tour was given by a man who lives in the swamp. Very informative. A definite must do.

Thank you for your interest in our tours! We usually recommend being picked up from Harrah's Hotel (228 Poydras Street) as they have a parking garage attached to their hotel. Thank you, Tours by Isabelle
