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 One is quintessentially creole and the historical content is superb.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!!!!!
These two plantation two words were absolutely awesome! Brian, Laura plantation docent, was exceptional! Okay Alley was gorgeous and so glad it was restored.
Excellent tour! Our guide Kat was amazing. Great if you enjoy history as it was an interesting and informative experience.
