Our 13 passenger tour van and excellent Tour Guide pick you up , then you are given a narrated scenic drive out of New Orleans and along the shores of Lake Ponchartrain to this 1789 Louisiana plantation on the East bank of the Old River Road: a pilgrimage back in time to the Antebellum South.

Guided tour of DESTREHAN PLANTATION where guides in period costumes will bring to life the stories of generations who lived on and worked this land - both owners and slaves. They will share with you every detail of this mansion's history and architecture. Free time to walk around under a spectacular canopy of live oaks around the mansion and the slave quarters.

We drive down to a remote Louisiana swamp in Cajun Country for a thrilling high-speed ride onboard a small airboat, comfortably gliding over marshes, deep into secluded bayous for approximately 2 HOURS.

Your Cajun boat captain may even let you hold a baby alligator, feed giant catfish, or meet a nutria face to face.

*In case of lightning, the AIRBOAT tour may be shortened, postponed, or replaced with the Cajun Bayou tour because it is a covered boat.

**Children under the age of five are not allowed on Airboats.

***The Airboat Captains reserve the right not to allow pregnant women on Airboats.
