New Orleans, LA

Enjoy a complimentary breakfast and meet with your Tour Director. This morning we will meet a Local Guide for a swamp and plantation tour. For many years people have traveled extensively to locate a unique and exciting form of entertainment that you can only experience here – the famous Manchac Swamp. Swamp creatures, seeing boats daily, recognize them as part of their normal environment. Unafraid and responsive to their boat captain’s call, they peak out from underbrush and between moss-draped trees and shrubs, frequently coming directly to the boat. In the safety and comfort of the boat, you can actually come within a few feet of jumping gators. As your boat drifts through the waterways, you will learn about the Louisiana Wetlands, the inhabitants of the swamp, particularly the life and habits of the American alligator, as well as the unique history of the Cajun town of Frenier located at this property.

Next, we make our way to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens. This is so much more than just a tour of a grand antebellum estate. Experience the southern splendor of “The Sugar Palace” when you step into 16 rooms filled with period antiques and Louisiana artwork. Enjoy 38 lush acres of gardens, ponds and a majestic live oak alley. Enjoy the breeze off the Mississippi and navigate through the shadows of ancient oaks. Enjoy an included buffet lunch at Café Burnside located on site.

We return to the hotel following the tour where you will have free time to explore the area and have dinner (not included) at a local restaurant.
