The all day tour was great as we started out with the airboat ride seeing some alligators and small ones also. Gary our guide told us about the swamp and trees and was very interesting and impressed. We then went onto the plantation homes and the workers homes and how they lived back then. The plantation home was beautiful inside and out and when they were built and amazingly how they were built back then. We then had a wonderful lunch of Cajun food. We finished up with the last plantation home which was beautiful inside and out

Loved every minute of it. Our guide was full all kinds of incite, personal stories, and getting to go inside one of the mansions was the best!
