Start with a visit to Destrehan Plantation, established in 1787 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It remains the oldest documented plantation home in the lower Mississippi Valley. Travel through time from the French and Spanish Colonial periods through the Antebellum grandeur of the sugar barons to the ravages of the Civil War and the rebirth of reconstruction. Immerse yourself in the rich history of Louisiana when French was the language, and the white gold of sugar drove the economy.
Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history will intrigue every visitor to the site. The plantation exhibits an original document signed by President Thomas Jefferson and Secretary of State James Madison. Destrehan Plantation was the site where one of the three trials took place following the 1811 Slave Revolt, one of the largest slave revolts in U.S. History.
During the Civil War, the Union Army seized the plantation and established the Rost Home Colony where newly-freed slaves learned trades enabling them to transition into a life of freedom. Located on the historic River Road, this Antebellum home with its plush green grounds and moss-draped Live Oaks watches over the banks of the Mississippi River just minutes away from New Orleans.
A house tour takes roughly one hour, with time to walk the grounds and see the slave cabin. This may include time for lunch (own expense).
Next, head for the bayou for your swamp tour. From the relaxed comfort of a covered boat, you'll drift slowly past a 2,000-year-old Native American burial mound, a Cajun cemetery and fishing village. Here, birds, snakes, turtles, fur animals, and gators are the kings of the swamp and easily spotted in Spring, Summer, and Fall. Gators do hibernate during the cold winter months, but lay on the bayou banks on warmer days.
The slow drift of our tour boats through moss-draped trees and small waterways provide ample opportunity for viewing and photography. The tour boats are fully narrated and captains are natives of the Barataria Swamps with a background of gator hunting, fishing, and trapping. 
Boats have a roof, restroom, cushioned seats, and windows that can be raised or lowered during cold or rainy weather, along with plenty of standing and walking room.

Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history will intrigue every visitor to the site. A house tour is approximately 1 hour, with time to walk the grounds and see the slave cabin. This includes time for lunch (own expense) if time permits.
Next, head for the swamp that's only 35 minutes from New Orleans - yet a world away. An airboat adventure is a high speed adventure that is part tour and part ride. You will experience the best of both: a swamp tour and an airboat ride.
You will travel at high speeds in the airboat then slow down and stop for pictures. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local captain. The airboats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view. So every airboat seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife.
Yes, gators will get close - real close. So close that you will be able to look into those reptilian eyes. Alligators do hibernate in the colder months, but the experienced captains know where to look for them. On average, during the winter, you have better than a 50/50 chance of seeing a gator. In the warmer months, you will see a gator. Every airboat tour is unique and you never know what will be around the next corner.
The area toured is a combination of swamp, marsh and lake, so you may see anything from a bald eagle to a pelican to osprey to an owl. The airboats are driven by a 454 Chevy Engine that will produce speeds of up to 35 miles an hour. They are propelled by a huge fan that will blow air from the back of the boat in excess of 200 miles an hour. These tours are truly a blast! They ride in inches of water and go where traditional boats cannot go. The boats were designed to take you to inaccessible areas of the swamp, places that you cannot reach by foot or car. It is a unique experience.
