The whole tour was enjoyable. The ride through the bayou was nice, Brian was very informative. Jenny was an excellent tour guide. She explained everything we needed to know about the places we went to and the history of Louisiana. The plantations we visited were very nice. The lunch was good.
Only problem was the van was difficult to get in and out.
This was awesome! The time of year (November) was perfect not many people. Our tour guides were wonderful. Everyone from our Van guide to the Swamp Guide to the house guides. Our van guide was great. It was nice that he picked us up at the front door to our hotel and he was on time. He was a local and you could tell he loved New Orleans. The Swamp guide was extremely knowledgeable and very nice. Family owned operation. No wildlife due to cold temps but that was ok, beautiful scenery. The plantations homes were outstanding. Very well kept and worth the 45 minute drive.
Tour was extremely enjoyable!! All was as advertised. Learned a lot about the pre Civil War south and the guides were informative and entertaining. The ride into the Bayou was educational and thrilling. Lots of alligators as well as other wild life. Well worth the $$$, you will enjoy this!
My wife and I found it very interesting. Our guide was great and told such good stories and history. Really enjoy it.
It was a very informative and yet relaxing excursion. We enjoyed the creole cuisine and the swamp tour was something of the ordinary. Tour was well organized and the guides very well prepared and courteous.
Loved everything about it! It's a must to get the true feel of New Orleans
The plantations were very beautiful. The swamp was peaceful and our guide was very nice and quick to see the wildlife that simply blended into the scenery.
Very interesting and informative tour.Highly recommended.
If you go to New Orleans - this is a must!
This was a great tour, the guide on the van was the best, the guided tour of the plantation was illuminating and the swamp boat tour should not be missed. Great day.
The tour guide Madalaine was OUTSTANDING providing a lot of useful info.
Excellent Tour. Guide Kat provided the background on the area and insights into the culture. Julie at Laura Plantation was exceptional. Very informative tour about Creole Plantation Life, she kept us engaged and interested throughout the tour. At Oak Alley Chelsea also provided an excellent tour and insight into the Americanization of Plantations in LA. Bayou tour was well done and tour guide very informative. All in all an excellent day with exceptional tour guides.
The day was very well organised. All the tour operators great communicators and story tellers. Food at the plantation delicious. All in all a day.
Laura plantation gets 5 stars wonderful tours, great guides and very interesting. Oak Alley was also nice but a bit of a disappointment after how well versed the guides were at Laura, also the guided tour was quite large the day we went and it was hard to enjoy the tight spaces of the home. Also I felt like it would hav been nice to have extra time at Oak Alley to really walk around and explore. Of course the lack of time is common on group tours. Our Driver was WONDERFUL!!!!
Very educational, great tour guides, very knowledgable, very interesting plantations, beautiful grounds...could have just walked the properties all day, and the swamp boat tour so relaxing with the driver full of interesting information the whole ride.Lunch was delicious too with more than enough tasty choices.
