Frequently Asked Questions

What should I wear? -- Comfortable, casual attire is recommended.

How do we get to the swamp and plantation? -- This tour includes transportation service from most New Orleans, Metairie and Kenner area hotels. Shuttle service is provided in an air-conditioned van or mini-bus. They are booked only to their comfortable capacities.

How far away is the swamp? Plantations? -- The swamp is 27 miles from Downtown New Orleans/French Quarter and only 15 minutes from the New Orleans Airport. The Plantations are 20-30 minutes past the swamp or about 1 hour from Downtown New Orleans/French Quarter. So, having the transportation provided is a real bonus!

Can you guarantee an exact return time? -- Due to the potential for unexpected traffic delays within the city, guides cannot guarantee an exact return time. However, every attempt is made to remain on schedule and to return you to your hotel at the planned time. Should you have a special concern regarding your return time, please advise upon making your reservation and reiterate this need with your driver on the day of the tour.

What if it rains? -- These tours are offered rain or shine. Tours are only canceled in the event of extreme weather conditions and every attempt will be made to contact you in advance if a tour is cancelled. The swamp tour boats are covered, making tours in the rain possible and unlikely to be cancelled. Umbrellas are suggested for walking in the rain from the vans to the swamp. The plantation tours mainly occur inside.

Do we have to worry about bugs and mosquitoes? -- You should not have to worry about bugs and mosquitoes, but bug spray is available for sale in the gift shop.

How much walking is involved? -- The swamp tour is entirely by boat. You need only to walk from the shuttle to the boat, which is a very short distance. The Plantation tours include some walking, but do not involve great distances.

Can I bring a stroller/wheelchair? -- It is possible to store strollers and some small, collapsible wheelchairs in the rear of the vehicles. One of the boats is wheelchair accessible. Please advise us upon making your reservation if someone in your party will be in a wheelchair as the space is limited for the one accessible boat. Unfortunately, the vans are not handicap lift-equipped; and, for insurance reasons, the drivers are not able to offer assistance with handicapped guests.

Are there bathrooms on the boat? -- There are no bathrooms on the boat. Bathrooms are available at the swamp site before and after your tour.

Tour includes pick-up from most New Orleans, Metairie and Kenner area hotels.

  • 5 / 5
    I loved every part of the tour. The driver was friendly and incorporated great music into our drive. The swamp tour boat captain was knowledgeable and entertaining. The Plantation Tour guide was also very knowledgeable. This tour was BY FAR my favorite of the 6 tours I did while in NOLA.

  • 5 / 5
    This was an excellent tour and the guide guide, Cap't Ron I believe, was wonderful-he made the swamp tour 10x better
