An excellent day trip, not to be missed. The Laura Plantation is lovely, and the history is worth hearing. Our guide was pleasant and friendly. And when you think this can't be topped, you reach Oak Alley. This estate is breath taking, from the main plantation home to the wondrous Oak Alley itself. We had a few minutes before our plantation home tour and we sat on the rocking chairs, with a cup of lemonade, and admired the alley way. Truly heavenly.
Oak Alley was so beautiful and the tour of Laura was so informative. I thoroughly enjoyed both and our guide was great.
This tour was fun and educative. My family is very pleased with it.
Picked up on time, very interesting and well explained. Had a fabulous guide at Laura Plantation Katie. We used to live in NOLA but were unaware of this important piece of history. Also had great communication from Viator prior to trip.
Excelllent tours and a great guide made the experience terrific
We went during the month of October and had the best time ever! Ellen was a wonderful guide, and extremely knowledgeable about the region and the plantations. It was an amazing time, I highly recommend this trip!
Very pleasant and informative tour led by Gisele. She is very passionate about her adopted city and supplied very interesting information in a very charming manner. Pick up was on time. The van was comfortable. Mike worked well. Zisele also brought city maps and statistics regarding Katrina, that were just stunning and helped to understand how the tragedy had happen and why there was so much destruction and so many victims. This tour is listed as plantations tour, but we had learned a lot about the history of New Orleans and creole culture from Gisele. Tours of the plantations were led by professional guides who work for those museums. Both guides were good.
This was a great tour! The antebellum plantations were a sight to see for me, Oak Alley was the crown jewel between the two!. If you are visiting New Orleans, this should be on your short list of things to do!
Great Trip. Great Guides. SUPER FANTASTIC DRIVER JERRY!!! Very talented and sure knows a lot. Only negative was finding the number online and then getting chastised by the owner saying it was her personal phone and to call another number. My suggestion is take your personal phone off the internet available to interested patrons. Other wise a great day! Thank you.
The small group for this tour was a bonus. Both plantations were memorable in their own way.
I would just recommend that the van driver talk less going to and returning from the sights.
Would highly recommend this tour was very informative and our tour guide was awesome.
This was a wonderful and informative tour. We got to hear about plantation life and see the furnishings of two very different plantations. Our guide, Logan, at Laura Plantation told us stories that were so interesting it made us want to learn more. Our driver picked us up right on time and gave us information about the city all the way out to the plantations and back again. We would highly recommend this tour!!
This tour was very informative and eye opening. To hear the history of the plantations and walk through them was a amazing experience.
The tour was great and the driver was very pleasant and knowledgeable. We enjoyed it very much.
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip with a very knowledgeable guide. If I return to New Orleans I'll definitely look in to a trip with you again.
We really enjoyed both plantations tours. The local guides were very knowledgeable and shared a lot of historical facts which made the tour very informative. The Mint Julep at the Oak Alley Plantation was really good on a hot, summer day!
We loved this tour because it showed us two different styles of plantations. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and fun. I highly recommend this tour as a must do while in New Orleans.
We had a terrific trip to the plantations with tours by Isabelle. Our driver Joseph was so knowledgeable.
Learn so much about Louisanan and New Orleans history. Very friendly and respectful. I was with
my mother who is 90 and he took great care of us. Please RECOMMEND THEM.
Our driver/guide was very knowledgeable and humorous. The Planations are worth seeing. I loved the intimate nature of the tour and door to door service.
Loved this tour! Our tour guide Joseph was awesome! He told us a lot of interesting facts on our drive to and from the plantations. Our favourite stop was Oak Alley - what it would have been like to live there! It's absolutely gorgeous. Would have liked to have spent more time there for sure! Laura was also very interesting. We were a little disappointed that our small group didn't actually extend to the tours of the plantation itself. That's kind of what we were thinking but it was really just a small group for the bus ride. Still, it was an absolutely amazing tour and I would book it again in a heartbeat! I really appreciated being driven out there and not only seeing some great scenery, but hearing a bunch of interesting things about what we were seeing. Thank you so much for the great experience!
