New Orleans Plantation & Swamp Private tour

New Orleans quickly brings thoughts of Mardi Gras and jazz music to mind- but don’t let that limit your experience of this fascinating city! There’s plenty to explore outside of the main streets, and this day trip is what it’s all about. Let your local host show you another side of New Orleans on a private day trip. It’s an experience you’ll never forget!

Who doesn’t love some scandalous history and hidden stories? The Barataria Swamps have plenty of those! Visit the Barataria Preserve in Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Reserve and learn about infamous pirate gangs, and see just where they conducted their black market businesses. You’ll be surprised at some of the turns the story of this outlaw takes.

Get a unique look at the history behind plantations and slavery in the south as you visit the oldest plantation in the Lower Mississippi River Valley. Take a walk through history as you explore the old plantation home.
