We were very impressed with the knowledge and enthusiasm of our tour guide at Laura Plantation. I believe his name was Ethan. Having never heard of the Creole plantations, this was an amazingly educational experience for us. Our van guide Ginnie kept everything running on time and on schedule. Her narrative as she drove us out to the plantation was very thought provoking. I was very interested in her explanation of Hurricane Katrina, the levies, and the aftermath of the storm. She provided us with an exceptional vacation experience
This was an amazing tour. Our tour guide, Ginni was so knowledgeable! We learned so much history. She told facts, but presented them in a story format, loved that she presented that way. The plantations were amazing. So glad we took this tour.
We had an excellent guide ellen . She was extremely knowledgeable and of course the the plantations were an incredible view to a past time in history.
Ginnie was FANTASTIC. She knew everything about New Orleans and surrounding areas. Every site we passed she gave us a history lesson. I would HIGHLY recommend any tour that Ginnie is the tour guide.
Truly enjoyed this tour. Our trip guide from Tours from Isabella was very informative. The guide at Laura's Plantation was especially knowledgeable and entertaining. Would do it again if revisiting New Orleans.
My family of 4 (including 13-year old twins) thoroughly enjoyed this tour taken on Feb 19th. Our hotel pick-up was exactly on-time. Niji, our guide, provided so much wonderful information/history both to and from the plantations. We loved the history of the sites - we highly recommend this tour!!
This tour was great. They were a great company to go with and our tour guide Ginny was exceptional - there was nothing she did not know about the plantations and New Orleans history in general. The plantations themselves were very interesting, well restored and in good condition. The guides for each plantation were also very good, friendly and had excellent subject knowledge. I'd definitely recommend this tour.
Wonderful tour ! Our driver was so nice and informative. We learned a lot about NOLA history. The plantation tours were very interesting. I would recommend this to othersz
Great tour! Everything well planned and organized. We LOVED The Oak Alley Plantation!
oak alley is a beautiful plantation home, well preserved with a knowledgeable tour guide in Anthony. the oak trees are a fantastic setting for the home. laura was also very interesting
Camille was fantastic tour guide and our driver was a former history school teacher. Driver gave much of the fill in history the plantation guide didn't have time for. You will learn more than you can remember, but you will also have a wonderful time in the process
This is why we came to New Orleans - Oak Alley Plantation. But in discovering this tour we also discovered Laura Plantation. I think our guides name was John (sorry if I got that wrong). He was sensational! His knowledge and commentary kept us interested and entertained all the way from the French Quarter to the Plantations and back. I learned a lot. The two plantations are completely different experiences too which is great. One is quintessentially creole and the historical content is superb. The other, visually stunning - no other words. This is a tour that should not be missed. The tour company is highly recommended by me.
great tour. Our tour guide, Madeline, was very knowledgeable. the Laura plantation guide was both knowledeable and entertaining. it would be great if lunch could be included as well.
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!!!!
Fantastic tour! So appreciated this insight into life on plantations and Ellen is wonderful - informative, humorous and so nice. She reminded me of one of my Oxford tutors!
Very worthwhile and informative. Ginnie. our tour guide, was awesome. This is a must do for anyone visiting New Orleans
The Laura Plantation had an amazing tour guide, I believe it was a young man named Stephen. The plantation was colorful and the history was extremely interesting. Oaks Alley has its breath taking land and home!
The tour guide was great! It was worth every dollar! I highly recommend that both plantations, Oak Alley and Laura, be toured together. Just going to one doesn't give you full true perspective. Seeing both is a must!!!!!
