See the best of New Orleans on a one-day excursion: the 2 iconic plantations of Laura and Oak Alley, a Cajun brunch, and a hydrofoil ride through the swamps!

Hop aboard your minibus in New Orleans and head to one of the oldest and most beautiful plantations, Oak Alley Plantation, which was founded in 1839.

On arrival, savour the 'country brunch' and Louisiana specialities such as smoked Cajun sausages, crayfish stew, and many other delicious dishes. Then, visit the manor house, which looks like a Greek temple thanks to its large columns. Next, make your way through the gardens and down the vast driveway surrounded by century-old oaks leading to the Mississippi.

You'll then continue your tour with a visit to Laura Plantation. Marvel at the unique architecture of this Creole plantation. Take an authentic tour with a former housekeeper who will tell you about her experiences as well as 250 years of slave history.

After a quick bus ride, you'll hop aboard an airboat for a ride through the Manchac Swamp in the middle of a wildlife reserve. Explore Louisiana's mysterious and iconic bayous on a peaceful cruise through the swamp. See where alligators live alongside many other species such as raccoons and egrets.

Head back to central New Orleans in the late afternoon after experiencing Louisiana’s key sights on a one-day tour.
