    The entire day was enjoyable. Ginnie was very informative and obviously loves her job and this area she calls home. At each destination the guides were friendly and knowledgeable. Torres swamp tours, he was so eager to share his life stories and family history. Oak Alley

    We did the swamp airboat tour and saw alligators. Didn’t see as much as we hoped because they are in their hibernation season. Still awesome to go on the boat. The plantations are so beautiful and interesting stories. Our tour guide was Gene Reyes. He was funny and knew a lot of

    Great tour! From our informative airboat guide that had an interesting family history to lunch at oak valley, beautiful trees and stories at Laura plantation.

    I took this tour 2/5/20. Gene was our tour guide. The Swamp tour is uneventful in the winter, and as such, should be avoided. The swamp guide was rude and obviously not customer service oriented. We boarded the boat and he said we would not see alligators, they’re hibernating,

    Response from ToursByIsabelle1, Owner at Experience Cajun Country: Swamp Boat Adventure and Plantations Full-Day Tour from New Orleans
    Responded 1 week ago
    Good morning Ms Lynn, Thank you for taking the time to alert us about your experience on our tour last week! I am glad you found the lunch food to be good and both Plantations tours to be 'very informative' and 'amazing'. I am sorry the weather was cold and rainy on your pontoon boat ride, and yes, you are correct, reptiles won't be visible in the swamp when that happens. Mostly, I apologize for your boat captain lack of 'customer service' attitude, I have had a meeting with him about this, and Gene has also been told to be more precise about his lunch menu description, and more careful with his timing on the tour itinerary. I personally apologize for Gene's insensitivity and he should never had said that about the enslaved! Believe me,  I find that 100% unacceptable! Drivers are obviously NOT to express personal political opinions and views on their tours! Louisiana history, geography and culture is what we talk about, and there is so much to say there! Again, I appreciate you taking the time to alert us about this, that way I can fix these issues! After 41 years in business, we realize that listening to our guests is a must.I will be glad to issue a 50% refund to you for this tour, please call my office at your convenience so we can arrange it.
