Me encanto, es un tour muy cultural que debes de hacer si visitas Nueva Orleans.
Jude was an entertaining and informative driver. Visiting the Whitney Plantation was truly moving. I would recommend this plantation to anyone. But visiting nowadays, it is especially timely.
We chose the Laura and Oak Plantation tours. The bus driver from Gray Line, Ken was knowledgable, had a sense of humour
and communicated facts in an interesting manner. The tour guide at the Laura plantation was really great and educated us on the history from the owners and slaves perspective, different cultures and cuisines. The Oak Alley was more a tour of the Big House, but equally interesting. Enjoyed visiting the plantations, well worth it and highly recommend.
The bus driver was a delight and kept us informed and entertained the entire journey. The guides were wonderful, both young and very informative. The guide at the Laura plantation, working on her master's in history and poli sci, was absolutely AWESOME! VERY impressed with her breadth of knowledge and style of presentation.
It was fascinating to view the different plantation epochs/eras amd hear about plantation life in the different centuries.
I took both Whitney and Laura Plantations tour. The tour guide and bus driver from Grayline, Jude is a local New Orleans very knowledgeable about the history and nature of New Orleans. The tour guides in both plantation provide clear briefing on the historical facts. Whitney Plantation provides complete history of slavery in America. While Laura Plantation provides history of landlord in America.
The trip is fun and informative. Oak Alley and Laura have different features, and both beautiful. Pity we didn't have time for Whitney Planation which is said to have more informations on slavery.
We all learned alot on these tours.
Whitney was especially eye opening.
The tour guides were amazing. The history of the south was brought to life and a new realization of the suffering that occurred during that time was heart breaking. The beauty of the country and the struggles to make the south what it is today was brought to life. I have a new appreciation for the simplicity of life we enjoy today. Beautiful, educational and exceptional.
We chose Whitney and Laura. Both extremely informative and the two hours was perfect for each place if you want to get right to the key points take pics and move on like me! BRING LUNCH IF YOU CHOOSE THESE TWO THERE IS NO STOP OR RESTAURANT ONLY AT OAK ALLEY just snacks.
I love history, and in particular American history. This was a surreal experience. Both tour guides for Whitney and Oak Alley were amazing and very knowledgable. Sandy was our bus tour guide from Grayline Tours. She was very helpful and kind. She can enlighten you about all aspects, such as food, history and general interesting facts that you can't find out from Google.
We did Whitney and Laura plantations. Both were great tours. Laura from both the slave and owner perspective and Whitney was incredible from the slave side of that time. I think everyone should go there to see for themselves another example of mans inhumanity to man. It was very emotional.
We went to visit the Laura Plantation and Oak Alley. Both were incredible but we preferred the Laura. Our driver was very informative and the speaker system was clear. It was very hot that day and the bus ride was pleasant. The Laura was smaller and more emotionally moving. The gift shop wasn't overwhelming and the bathrooms were clean and cool A.C.!! Oak Alley was a little more commercialized. But the snack bar was most welcomed. The drive back to New Orleans was quiet. I think we were all lost in our thoughts at what we had learned that day or dozing. Again, the vouchers printed off at home are not the tickets. Exchange them for tickets at the lighthouse.
Excellent! Our bus driver/tour guide, Ken was informative and entertaining. The Whitney Plantation was very educational and moving as well. Ken also arranged for us to go to a local restaurant inexpensive and great food! near the Laura, since lunch wasn't included. Definitely recommend!
We toured Whitney and Oak Alley. Whitney was especially impressive, as it is from the slave's view. Our guide there, Cheryl, was extremely informative and knowledgable. Oak Alley was more of a tour of just the home on the plantation, but was also informative. I would definitely choose to tour Whitney as it is a very real look into the lives of the slaves.
I enjoyed this tour, especially being given a choice of which plantations to visit. Both were interesting and enjoyable, and the tour left from a central spot in NOLA making it easy to find.
Yes I just went on this tour Jan 31st 2017. To hear and see all the stories and the many names and stories that are inscribed on the memorial walls is very moving. The Whitney Plantation is a must. The Laura was well worth it also.
I loved seeing the plantations! Only wish i could have had time to tour all three plantations instead of just two..
We visited Laura and oak valley, enjoyed both Plantations.the time at each one was perfect.Our gude in the bus was also very good ,we enjoyed her tips and history of New Orleans
Whitney plantation was amazing very indepth knowledge from our tour guide Ali. Reallt passionate with coveneying the information across and you could tell he enjoys feeding knowledge. Laura plantation was so pointless as a black person I don't want to hear about slave owners.
We did the Whitney and Laura Plantation tours which told the stories of the slaves and the landowners respectively.
I would have to say the Whitney tour was outstanding. These tours are led by well educated, respectful people who do a fantastic job of telling the terrible story of slaves and their lives in America. Do not miss this tour, it is fabulous. Laura plantation was good but not in the same class as Whitney, but a gives a good understanding of the lives led by the priviledged few.
It was an eye opening tour. We did the Whitby and Laura plantations and they were very interesting and different from one another.
Sunscreen, hat and water is recommended at Whitby which is outside for a major part of the tour. They have umbrellas available to use
There is no food other than snacks to buy on the tour with these two plantations. You depart at 9am and return around 4:15 so you may want to bring something to eat. You can leave stuff on the bus.
The Whitney was excellent although could have done with more time. Oak Valley was really disappointing as it was too commercial and didn't feel the same vibes as we did at Whitney.
After having gone to several plantations in several states, I thought the Whitney was the most moving and memorable of all.

Tour guide worked his heart out and did a great job, but overall I would do the 2 plantation tour in the future.
