Excellent tour! Would highly recommend, our tour guide Susan was very informative. We had lunch at the restaurant which was quite enjoyable.
This trip via Old South Tours was one of the favourite parts of our recent stay in New Orleans. Keith our driver was gentile. The trip was well organized as we received a day before call about a pick up change due to Mardi Gras. The house tour was excellent. The garden self tour beautiful and the buffet at their cafe was the best food that I had during our three day NOLA stay. Lauren was a great server and the atmosphere and service throughout the cafe first rate. Their mint juleps were excellent and a perfect way to end the day in this stunning antebellum planter's home. We are Bette Davis fans and loved the connection and stories surrounding her stay there.
This tour was fantastic. The initial selling point for me was that transportation was provided from New Orleans. However, after we got there, the grounds, the tour guide, Liz, and the restaurant were simply excellent. I honestly believe this tour offers a good representation of plantation life. The absence of evidence of slave residence is regrettable, but that cannot be helped. Southern history is more complicated that most folks want to admit. I would take this tour again in a heartbeat.
This is well worth the ride up to this beautiful and famous plantation home.
tour guide was very knowledgeable thereby adding to the interest of the tour. well worth seeing.
What a great Plantation. Fantastic House and Grounds. Excellent Tour Guide in the house. Very knowledable, informnative and in period costume.
Incredible place. Just wish I had had more time. Best to arrive with your own car...if possible. Thank you Anna, the guide in the house, you were super informative and entertaining!
The tour was terrific. Great guides and driver.
One challenge while checking in...the cashier wanted to charge me again for the tour. She didn't understand the 'voucher' meant I had a paid tour.
I loved the plantation it was beautiful! And our tour guide Susan was amazing! Highly recommend
Incredible!! We wish we had the whole day it was that wonderful! Everything from the bus ride to the tour and free time on the grounds. One of the highlights of our entire trip!
This is a lovely tour and a great way to spend an afternoon. The house and grounds are beautiful and there is a very nice restaurant on site. Our tour guide was well informed about the history of the area and the plantation itself. This is not a museum but a private residence.
We really enjoyed this tour. It was well done and very informative and we had a great time!
Worth the hour drive out of New Orleans as the Mansion and grounds were beautiful and our tour guide was informative and humorous. The café on site had great food as well!
The grounds, the tour guide, the food ... all memorable and very enjoyable. Worth every penny!
Excellent tour and tour guide a must for anyone visiting New Orleans
Loved the plantation it is so beautiful, the gardens are worth the stroll and it is amazing how much our world has changed, our tour guide was wonderful with asking questions and telling the history of the house and the plantation.
Spectacular!!! This is the best all around plantation that I have toured in Louisiana. The house and grounds are truly wondrous and the original artwork will spoil you. The restaurant was top notch, I had the buffet, you won't be disappointed!! The one hour bus ride out from the city was comfortable and pleasant. The mint julep was only average but still good. Can't wait to come back!!
Gardens were beautiful!!! Tour was fun, educational and enjoyable!!!
The tour itself was terrific! Debbie, our knowledgable and entertaining tour guide, was very interesting and passionate about the property and its history. My only frustration was the ride to the plantation. There was an issue with another participant being late for his appointed pick up which made the pickup at the Marriott 15 minutes late. Then we went back to get the guy! I am a local and took the bus option for convenience. Next time I'll just take our visitors by car and get tickets at the door.
