Transform your New Orleans vacation into an adventure with the immersive Swamp and Plantation Combo Tour. This action-packed expedition steps off the beaten path and plunges you directly into Louisiana's stunning latticed waterways and majestic antebellum mansions. Prepare yourself for an intimate encounter with the Deep South's wilderness, colonial-era splendor, and vibrant culture.

As the tou begins, immerse yourself in a world where time seems to stand still. Board a spacious, covered flat-bottomed boat as your amicable guide takes you on a journey through Louisiana's pristine swamp lands. Navigate narrow, winding bayous framed by dense, lush vegetation. Observe wildlife such as alligators, egrets, wild boars, and raccoons up close and personal in their natural habitat. Don't forget to dress comfortably for the bayou's unpredictable weather and wear flat-soled shoes for the walking portions of this immersive tour.

Next, step back in time. Swap the raw allure of the swamp for Louisiana's grandiose plantation homes. The tour includes visits to two splendid estates, where you will admire beautifully-preserved architecture, restored interiors, and vast, manicured gardens. Savor the nostalgia at the 18th-century Destrehan Plantation, known for its handcrafted Creole furniture and the 1811 Slave Revolt trials. Then marvel at the Italianate elegance of Houmas House Plantation, also known as the 'Sugar Palace,' with its antiques-filled rooms and a 38-acre garden that rivals Versailles.

These sites are not only loaded with historical significance but are also renowned for their contributions to Hollywood. Many of these locations served as backdrops for famous movies and TV series, including '12 Years a Slave' and the TV drama 'Queen Sugar.' Few experiences pair Southern horror with grandeur so seamlessly, making the Swamp and Plantation Combo Tour a tour de force of southern charm and gothic allure.
