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.

The tour was terrific. Great guides and driver.
Quality tour.
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.

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.

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!!

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.
