    After guests meet at the specified departure location, we will begin this tour, traveling to a majestic antebellum plantation that sits above the banks of the Mississippi River, only a few miles upriver from New Orleans. Costumed docents will intrigue us with the history of the Destrehan family's sugar dynast, historic events that occurred at the site, and the unique architectural features of the plantation. Daily trade demonstrations performed by costumed artisans will give us an insight to long-forgotten skills that were a vital part of everyday life centuries ago. Then, it's a short ride to Manchac Swamp, where we will cruise through a privately-owned wildlife refuge, home to the legend of "Rougarou," the Cajun werewolf. Though we won't see that beast, we will most likely see some local alligators in this area where time seems to stand still. Afterwards, we will return to the departure location, bringing an end to the tour. Please see "Departure and Return" for more detailed information regarding pickup and drop-off times and locations.
