There was plenty of time to take pictures of the entire house as well as of the oak-lined walkway. I didn't feel rushed and even had time to look through the gift-shop.
Excellent tour. Muriel the driver was hilarious. Rose who did the Laura plantation tour told the stories beautifully with an almost apologetic air for how the South and the slaves were treated. Oak Alley is stunning and i just wish i been there when the trees were in full bloom. Well worth it.
A must if you stay in N.O.
Will recommend strongly Isabelle Tours
This is a wonderful, informative and fun tour. Learned so much about the history of New Orleans. Our friends who have been to the Plantations on their own loved the informative tour bus ride as well. Highly recommend this to everyone who comes to New Orleans. Would definitely use Tours by Isabella again.
Great tour and tour guide! Very informative history about the plantations and Creole culture! So glad we did this! Great experience!
This tour should not be missed while travelling to New Orleans. Two completely different plantations, Laura Plantation and Oaks Ally. The guide at the Laura Plantation was excellent and took us all back in time. One of the best things we did in New Orleans. Don't miss out, buy the book about Laura Plantation, it is also very good.
I would never have thought to visit plantations but the timing of the tour made it work with our schedule. The history of the Creoles was so interesting and our tour guide gave us a lot of background on the area. Loved Laura's plantation and seeing slave quarters was moving.
Excellent tour very informative. The guide was very knowledgeable. We would recommend this tour as a must do if it is one's first visit to NOLA.
These two very different plantations showed two different sides of the industry: Laura focussed a lot on slave life and we toured slave accomodations; Oak Alley represented the grandeur and elegance of owning a plantation. I recommend this tour to anyone visiting New Orleans.
Excellent trip. The tour guides and tourbus driver were very friendly and informative. The weather cooperated making it a memorable tour.
Enjoyed everything about this tour! Guides were informative and very interesting.
Loved it...the driver was great as well as the tour guides...Thank You
