This was the last of five tours in three for my group. I really enjoyed the comfortable ride in the motor coach. The driver described some points of interest along the way and gave some history about the sugar and cotton industry. The plantation was beautiful and the guided tour was nice. It was sad to think about the role the slaves played. All that beauty build on the backs of the slaves. Very little was mentioned about that in this tour, however they are in the process of building replicas of the cabins the slaves lived in.
Beautiful plantation, very informative tour - definitely worth seeing!
The bus driver gave us an mini tour as we drove from the city out to Oak Alley. I wasn't expecting that and it was very nice. The plantation grounds, the trees and the house are lovely. The tour at the house was nice, but could have been done a little more efficiently, as our tour was stuck out on the veranda while another tour was upstairs. Since we had a deadline to get back to the bus, this wasted valuable time that could have been spent exploring the grounds, shopping or eating.
Great visit to a one of a kind plantation! The overall cost is a little expensive though.
The highlight of this tour was the very beautiful grounds and landscaping. The tour of the big house itself was not what I expected. I expected more. Our bus driver was very nice and informative.
Good and great tour guide. Beautiful grounds, far too short of time while there. It was too rushed and before we knew it we had to get back on the bus. Leave a lot more time to look around. It's too valuable a trip out to cut it so short. We spent most of the time on the bus going to the plantation and back.......
Driver was very helpful and humerous but insufficent time at the plantation
takes 1.5 hours to get there and then another 1.5 hours to get back. had a mint julep and had to throw it out, it had so much whiskey and bourbon in it. the tour was interesting but i wish we saw where the slaves stayed and more stories about that.
Tour was informative and the plantation was very nice.
Tour of the Plantation was above average, presented well, organized, informative - highly advise taking it - Rating for the Tour Operator = 4 Stars -- HOWEVER, Tour bus was 20mins late leaving New Orleans while waiting on ONE late arriving passenger, who had been late for a previously scheduled tour. A bus of approx 40 people waited on one person based on the decision of Mgr Bren. HIGHLY UNACCEPTABLE when other people on the bus had later obligations that shortened the Tour. Shame on Tour Bus Mgr Brent for allowing "a dime to hold up a dollar!" Rating for Mgmt - ZERO STARS (but, bus driver Mike did his best in light of Brent's poor decision).
