The history was fascinating, the tour guide was great, and the group was small. Awesome tour!
Ginnie was a fantastic guide, she was very informative, enthusiastic and accommodating. Her knowledge of the area was amazing, she informed us of New Orleans history from start to finish. Highly recommend a trip with Ginnie to the plantations!
Site guides friendly, knowledgeable and informative.
Driver humorous and informative, but kept to the schedule so that we
got to see what we were supposed to see. Great tour!
The tour was wonderful. Unfortunately the Van was a little small for 11 adult people. Sitting side by side in a small space was not pleasant. We booked the small group because we did not want to be shuttled on a bus. I would probably not want to go with this company again because of the number of people put into a small van.
The tour itself was wonderful. I would recommend this tour to anyone.
We had an excellent tour. Our driver and guide was on time,early actually but we were ready. Would highly recommend this tour which is run by Tours by Isabella .
OUr tour guide Jenny was the BEST GUIDE EVER! AWESOME does not describe her expertise and energy that she showed about these BRILLIANT properties and their rich histories. The manner in which she spoke about the histories and the traditions regarding these two plantation homes made me feel the passion all the more because she brings it out in you. Well spoken and energetic was the precurosr to the tour. Adriana the house tour guide as well as the other gentlemen that were all dressed in period piece customs really were part of the once in a lifetime experience. The young lady making the Mint Julips on the porch was delightful as well.. FANTASTIC! experience TAKE THIS TOUR as it is THE ONLY WAY TO truly enjoy your experience.
very nice, the tour guide was excellent as was the guides at the plantations, would love to do the Whitney plantation some day
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.
