What you can expect

Pair Louisiana's captivating backcountry with a look into history during this combination tour. Venture into the swamps and bayous of Louisiana to discover the wildlife thriving there, and then visit a plantation, where you learn about the sobering realities behind aristocratic plantation life.

Get picked up from your hotel and travel to the Manchac Swamp, where you climb into a boat to cruise the incredible natural area. Stay on the lookout for alligators and a variety of other creatures lurking in the shallow waters between moss-covered trees, and learn about the uniqueness of Louisiana's bayou from a guide.

After exploring the swamp, your tour takes you along the River Road to the Laura Plantation or Oak Alley Plantation. As you follow your guide through stately, well-preserved rooms, compare the apparent elegance of the house to the troubling and tragic history of slave labor that southern families relied upon for generations.
