New Orleans, Louisiana
The plantations were great, but the tour guide, who was less a tour guide and more of just a driver was disappointing. The previous day that same tour company provided an outstanding guide for a New Orleans city tour, so we were expecting the same high quality for the plantation tour. Instead, the guide just drove us to the two plantations, which provided their own guides. The guide at Laura Plantation was very good, but we were disappointed by the guide at Oak Alley, who spent about as much time talking about herself as she did about the history of the plantation.
The first day was five star, primarily because of our outstanding guide. I'd rate the second day a 3 star, primarily because of our not so outstanding guide. (Also, as a non-Catholic, I'm afraid that Fatima didn't have the appear that it otherwise might have had.) However, this 2-Day Super Saver provides excellent value, and we recommend it. It's a great way to see the area around Lisbon in a couple of days. Sintra was worth the trip in its own right!
