Swamp creatures, seeing our boats daily, recognize them as part of their normal environment. Unafraid and responsive to their boat captain's call, they peak out from underbrush and between moss-draped trees and shrubs, frequently coming directly to the boat. In the safety and comfort of the boat, you can actually come within a few feet of jumping alligators.

We loved Oak Alley, it was so beautiful! We loved the samp tour as well. However, I did not like that we didn’t know until we got dropped off for the swamp tour after oak alley we had to wait a little over an hour until the swamp tour. It would of been nice to know as there was really nothing to do in the are.
I really enjoyed both the plantation and swamp tours. The swamp tour did last a little longer than I expected, but it was a good experience. The drive to and from both locstions was about and hour. We spent about 2 hours at the plantation, and 3 hours at the swamp with 1 hour being a wait period before the next tour. Overall, I enjoyed myself very much.
We loved visiting the beautiful Oak Alley plantation and drinking their mint juleps! The swamp boat tour was alot of fun looking for alligators, we found about 13! We went to the Mona Lisa bar just down the street from the swamp tour for bevies while waiting for bus. The people were so friendly in there. All around great trip!
