Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Daren our guide was AWESOME! He told us such great stories about the town history and had his own personal spin on everything! He did a great job of making sure everyone was safe and included in the experience. Highly recommended your.

    Loved this entire thing! The swamp tour was super fun and our guide was amazing. The plantation was breath taking and super interesting to learn about life during that era. 100% worth the money.

    Linda — No Line Linda — our guide, and her partner, the driver, were excellent. Linda was very attentive to passengers’ needs. Funny too. Our driver was safe and provided a smooth ride. It was a good way to see a big part of the older parts of the city. Her spiel was informative.

    Touring the historical plantation home. And the view down the lane surrounded by live oaks to the home. Beautiful!

    Our tour bus driver was so passionate about his city. He shared so many things about local history that I just soaked up. He was personable and funny. He really wanted us to enjoy our trip in NOLA, as well as the plantation.
    The plantation was heavy for me. I absolutely love what they have done. Making this experience to honor those enslaved people, to give them a voice, to make sure we don't sugar coat what really went on, who the real victims were. Preserving American history is vital to us as a people. This tour should be mandatory by all schools, not just during Black History Month, it is American history and should be part of the curriculum.
    I met a woman who worked there and she was SO knowledgeable and shared more about the property and the proprietor. It was just something my soul needed.

    This was a fantastic tour! The plantation is very beautiful and on the cloudy day we had, it was a great atmosphere for photos. I was a tiny bit upset that I couldn't take pictures inside the house, but I completely understand why. It's more important to preserve the history than it is for me to have pictures I most likely won't look at many times. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions and listen as some guests (my aunt included) told their own stories. There was plenty of time to see everything and grab a bite to eat before we went on.

    The swamp tour was absolutely fantastic! The guide was very knowledgeable and hilarious and always made sure to stop whenever anyone pointed out a gator. He also has a baby gator you can hold and he is so cute! Though they normally hibernate in January, we were able to see many gators out sunbathing since it was sunny and 80° F. I misunderstood part of the tour: I thought we would get out and explore a fishing village, but you see it from the boat.

    I highly recommend this tour!

    We weren’t sure about a swamp tour, but are very pleased we went!
    Easy transfer to the swamp.
    Had to wait for the tour so perhaps could have left a bit later than we did.
    We went on the big boat and Captain Matt was brilliant. Very informative and funny. Some strange comments from some passengers but he responded well. I am sure he has to deal with all sorts of people in these trips.
    Saw 3 Alligators, not big ones but pleased to see something!
    Highlight was the baby Alligator he introduced to us.
    Highly recommend this tour, easy pick up and return and a good tour to do in NOLA

    Matt was our swamp tour guide and was absolutely fabulous. He did a great job. He was born and raised in the area and was extremely knowledge. He was also super funny and made the tour very entertaining.
    Our bus driver was Gary and he was great also! He gave us lots of information and history on the bus ride.

    Great tour with Nick. He knew so much about the City of New Orleans. And Mardi Gras bonus, he had King Cakes for us! I would definitely repeat this tour but only if Nick is our tour guide!

    My favorite tour of all the ones we did in New Orleans this week! We slept terribly all week with bad dreams, and after this tour we thought it would be even worse because we saw and heard some truly spooky stuff. Brandon saged us at the end of the tour and that night we both slept like babies uninterrupted the entire night! I gave him a $30 tip and wish I had given more 😕

    What an amazing tour- perfect on a rainy day. Our tour guide Gray was great and very knowledgeable about the areas we toured. We did the tour 3 years ago, it was different which was great as we were not bored.
