Review by Bill Li
The air boat tour was great! Gary was our guide and we saw plenty of gators as well as blasting thru dem' swamps. The plantation tour was extremely interesting and we enjoyed that as well! (Posted on 4/3/2015)

The airboat through the bayou was marvelous and tranquil. The Captain did a great job of educating us about the natural importance of the waterway…and feeding the gator was a bonus.
The plantation tour was grand and historical. Our guide did a fantastic job transporting us back into the 1800s. (Posted on 9/30/2014)

Swamp ride was awesome. Had a great guide who was very informative and took his time in helping to find wildlife in the swamp. Plantation was interesting. We really enjoyed this combo. Only drawback was the bus driver who was not friendly. (Posted on 5/28/2014)

The airboat tour on the swamp was exhilarating. We saw several alligators. The Destrehan Plantation tour was informative, and our favorite part was walking into actual slave cabins--haunting. The property is gorgeous. (Posted on 5/25/2014)
