Enjoyed the history of the Destrehan Plantation as well as learning about the 1811 slave revolt. Swamp tour- we did the covered flat boar instead of the airboat due to my husband's back. It was awesome. Our guide Rocky was great. Had a chance to hold a 2 month old baby gator, a 2 year 2 foot gator and was able to pet the 6 footer he brought up to and on the boat. Highly recommend it.
