Great tour! Saw 2 different plantations. The guides on both plantations were very knowledgeable and answered all our questions. Tour was scheduled perfect with times for own exploration and to grab a snack. The only con ..... I must admit the hotel pick up is nice and you do get to see some of the city your not staying in. Our hotel was in the Garden district, most people seem to stay in the French Quarter which add on an hour on both ends of out tour. Might be nice to also have a central pick up/ drop off zone for people who wish to do this

The tour was well organised. Our pick up point was in the French Quarter and the bus went direct to the destination after a few more hotel pickups along the way. The Oak Alley and Laura plantations were very different and it was worthwhile and an interesting contrast to see both. The guides at the plantations were provided by the establishments and both were good, particularly at Laura.
A wonderful day. Laura was really special. I would have liked more time at Oak Alley, you basically have a very fast tour through the house for about 30 minutes then have to race back to the bus to get back to town.
Our guide at Laura Plantation, Renee, was fantastic. a beautiful place with a rich history.
Once on this trip it was a wonderful experience. The tour guides were friendly and informative. The locations were wonderful. I had an incredible experience there!!! Both of the locations were a treat to enjoy.
These plantations were quite majestic, especially Oak Alley Plantation. Those mighty oak trees lining the entrance to the plantation are truly a sight to behold. A thorough history of the plantation and it and #39;s residents was also provided. Definitely worth doing. Our driver; John did a great job.
The tour was great. The people at each plantation had lots of information for us. the Laura Plantation had a lot of history but The Oak Alley had history plus beauty. The amount of time spent at each was good. I did not feel rushed. The bus driver was good also.
This tour was the highlight of my trip to New Orleans. It came highly recommended to me by a friend and I was so happy I did it.
Our bus driver was awesome. She was so upbeat and told some great stories. Big thumbs up!
Trip was well done. Picked up on time at our hotel. Tours were excellent.

Laura Plantation tour was fabulous. Rose, the tour guide, was incredible. She really emoted the history of this plantation and made it so very interestingl Oak Alley is gorgeous, a real southern belle. The tour guide was informative and all the staff were in period costume. Definitely a hit!!
Our family of 5 loved this tour! We were picked up at our hotel in the morning and had a narrated bus tour by our driver, Stacy, on the way to Laura Plantation. Our guide, Kati, at Laura Plantation was amazing at story telling and making the Plantation come alive. Oak Alley is a beautiful place to see, even on a somewhat rainy day. We were then dropped back off right at the front door of our hotel. It was a great day!
Liked Laura more than Oak Alley. The history there is just amazing. A true learning experience.
This was a tour I would definitely recommend. The guides were very knowledgeable and plantation life was not glorified. You were able to see the deplorable conditions of the slaves if you chose to go to the slave quarters. There was a lot of history of the region included as well as cultural information about life during the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.
Wonderful wonderful tour. The historical and genealogy research was amazing. And our bus driver to the plantation provided great information on the ride out and played wonderful blues and jazz music on the ride back.
This was a fabulous tour! We learned so much about plantation life in the Big Easy! The grounds were beautiful and the tour guides were well informed as well as entertaining. The driver on our bus was an awesome guide as well telling us all about the sites as we drove to the plantations. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in the history of plantation life in New Orleans.
It was well organized, informative and fun. All the tour guides were great.
Great trip! Driver was friendly and knowledgeable and both plantations were very interesting. Only reason no 5 stars is pickup time/ process info confusing. One place on website said they might pickup at hotel 30 -60 minutes ahead of schedule. Huh?? Called 6 times to get ETA, on hold, then dropped.
I went with two friends and we all really enjoyed this tour. My friends preferred Oak Alley and would have liked more time there, but I felt Laura Plantation was really interesting. Tours were provided at both locations, which were informative, but not much time for wandering around, which would have been a plus at Oak Alley particularly. We were really glad we did the tour.
