Gisele was so knowledgeable and exciting to listen to about the history of New Orleans. She had insight that brought to life aspects of the city. We were so thrilled and felt so comfortable with the experience. I would recommend any tour with this company. We took two separate tours.

By far the airboat ride in the swamp was the highlight of the day for my husband and I. The airboat driver/guide was great, very entertaining, well informed- he knew the area well! This was the first stop of the day; our tour guide Steve had rain ponchos in the van that he offered to us all. I was grateful for the poncho, the airboat moves fast and it wasn’t a hot morning. Felt totally safe and was sorry when the ride was over.
Next stop was Laura Plantation, the house wasn’t as grand as I expected but our guide was well informed about the plantation family and life on the plantation for both the family and the slaves.
Next stop was Houmas House for a buffet lunch and tour of the house and grounds. This house was much grander than the Laura Plantation and according to the guide, is still lived in daily by the current owner, who is absent during the day. Lunch was good, you could eat as much as you wanted, and bar drinks were available for purchase. Was interesting to walk through the house and hear facts about how it was built, added onto and furnished. It was December 14 when we visited and the house and grounds were decorated for Christmas, was nice to see.

Rene is great, and his recommendations for dining were spot on! He was prompt and attentive to his clients and has a very full understanding of the history of New Orleans. It was great fun having a true NOLA native give us the ride.

For the airboat ride, bring full wrap around sunglasses if you have them. A set of small binoculars (w/neck leash of course) would also be nice if you like birds. There were eagles that would have been nice to see up close.

Isabelle and Ragen Cajun did a phenomenal job. The historical storytelling offered by Isabelle was engaging and interesting. It is obvious she wants a special experience for her customers. The airboat captains were informative and never rushed the experience. I highly recommend!
