    Two Plantation Tour Combo

    (1)
    You're not gonna get to know N'Awleans any better than this locally-owned family-run business that's been doing their thing since '89! On this tour, you'll visit two plantations. One is The Laura Plantation, once run by four Creole women (most notably, Laura, whom it was named after). You'll also hear other facts about how the book "Brer Rabbit" was written on the grounds, and how The Laura Plantation was nearly destroyed by fire back in 2003 and rebuilt to its original design using materials from antique homes that had been disassembled and sold off into pieces. What a history! The other stop will be at The Oak Alley Plantation -- which looks just like the movie, "Gone With the Wind." The very last owners were Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Stewart, and though Mr. Stewart died years before his wife, Mrs. Stewart created a non-profit organization to keep their gift open to the public for years to come. In both Plantations, you are sure to enter the harrowing history of slavery, viewing the quarters where humans were once entrapped into labor, and hearing stories of all aspects of the plantation life. You'll also learn facts about the previous owners of The Plantations and the restoration efforts both grounds have endured. Either way, you're bound for a history lesson. Take this tour to get to know the human history of this beautiful region. Your guide will be a local captain who has lived the Cajun Life, living in harmony with the ecosystem on a daily basis, so you're in good hands!

    Airboat Ride (4 hr)

    Take a thrilling airboat ride through the wetlands near New Orleans and plenty of alligators on this active, family-friendly tour! Travel over bayous and open waterways around the colorful, historic fishing village of Jean Lafitte, named after a 19th-century smuggler. Spy alligators in the wild -- as well as raccoons, native birds and large river rodents called nutria -- as your native guide provides commentary. Your 4-hour tour includes round-trip transport from New Orleans and 1.5 hours on the boat. This tour is an easy way to get out and experience the rich natural landscape around New Orleans. Travel by air-conditioned coach from central New Orleans to the nearby fishing village of Jean Lafitte, named after an 18th-century smuggler. Home to a variety of diverse cultures, this area surrounded by Lousiana bayous has been the site of extensive logging operations, sugar and rice plantations and animal trapping enterprises over the years. Today, the people's simple way of life is a marked contrast to the hustle-bustle of New Orleans.

    In Jean Lafitte, you can get some snacks (own expense) and check out an albino alligator exhibit before boarding your choice of a small or large airboat, a vessel that relies on an aircraft-type propeller mounted on its back to move it forward. Feel the wind in your hair as your move swiflty over the wetlands.

    Your native boat captain will talk about the history and culture of the area and point out wildlife as you travel. See lots of alligators lurking in the marshes, as well as local birds, raccoons and nutria -- giant river rodents that call the bayous home.
