    Destrehan Plantation
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Pick-up begins at 8:15am with a short 30 minute ride to Destrehan Plantation. Transportation is provided by our sister company “Alert Transportation.” The driver goes hotel to hotel for the pick-up service. We ask that you allow us up to 30 minutes for the pick-up which will be curbside of your hotel. While taking the Destrehan Plantation tour, you will be viewing the oldest standing Plantation in the Mississippi Valley that is surrounded by majestic, 300 year old Oak Trees. The house has been beautifully restored to its original glory. The Destrehan Plantation house tour is approximately 1 hour and is given by professional tour guides that will enlighten and entertain you on this trip through history. A Slave Quarter museum is a part of your tour of the plantation grounds. That will give you 20 minutes after the tour to walk around the grounds and take some pictures.

Recently went on a combo tour with Louisiana Tour Company and it was great! The plantation was just ok but the airboat portion was exceptional. We chose to ride the smallest airboat and it was worth every penny. Rocky was our guide for the afternoon and he did an exceptional job! He was very knowledgeable and eager to answer any questions that we had. We had the opportunity to see several alligators up close including a very large one that we were able to touch. Well worth the money!

When we were trying to decide which plantation to visit, we chose Destrehan because Destrehan is one of the closest to New Orleans and the oldest and one of the most historic plantations in Louisiana. Located just off of the Mississippi river (approximately 15 minutes outside of Metarie), Destrehan was home to one of the 4 council members hand picked by Thomas Jefferson to aid in the acclimating of the French Louisiana residents into the United States just after the Louisiana purchase in 1803. The house tour is led by guides and they also discuss the history of slavery at the plantation. Destrehan was also where the trial of the famous slave revolt of 1811 took place. Very interesting and historic tour.

The swamp tour was the best! We didn’t do the airboat and I am glad we didn’t! We did the “casual” boat ride and where able to see tons of alligator from about 12 feet to babies! Came up to the boat! It was so awesome!! I highly recommended it!!!!!

Excellent tour guide and driver, Mary E was energetic and well informed. No gators whilst in the swamp because of the season but would definitely do it again. My new husband and I had a great time.
