This was our favorite part of our 1 week vacation in New Orleans. We booked online the day before for a 2PM tour. They come and pick you up at your hotel, which is nice if you have only been in NOLA for a day or two and have not gotten the lay of the land yet. Our tour guide,... More

Enjoyed the plantations and the history of them. Did not enjoy the opinions of the guide about the oil spill and other political subjects.

I was notified the tour was overbooked, got bummed out. Then was contacted by phone, text and e-mail to let us know room had opened up! Loved that they went out of their way to make sure we got on a tour. The tour itself was amazing! The plantations tours were great. The best part of our entire day was... More

Today we had a tour with Old River Road and had a great afternoon. We were picked up at our hotel by Billie who not only knows a lot of everything you can think of about New Orleans but also has a great entertaining way of telling it. He really made our day!!! Both tours are very impressive and informative,... More

This is the first review I have ever written about a company, I don't believe in bad mouthing a company but this place deserves every line I am about to say. First they were late to pick us up (which wasn't a huge deal). The driver seemed nice and knowledgeable on the ride up to the plantation we were about... More

This couple did not take our tour. They purchased tickets directly from St. Joseph plantation and had no way to get there. St Joseph recommended they call and ask us since we sometimes do a tour of St Joseph and Oak Alley in the afternoon.. We tried to convince her to see Oak Alley also, but she just wanted St... More

I called the company in hopes of getting transportation to the St. Joseph's plantation. Knowing it wasn't going to be a private shuttle, we booked anyways. Everything was fine until our driver told us that we would have to wait until 4-4:30 for him to come back for us. We would be done no later than 3 and the plantation... More

The tour overall was excellent. The company, Old River Road Platation Adventure, sent a bus to pick us up at our hotel. The bus driver took us around the Frech Quarter (FQ) and gave us a little history of it. He then drove us to our first destination, Oak Alley plantation, and took a tour of it. All the while... More

Just enough time to use rest room. Onto Laura plantation, tour was great, then again, no time to tour on your own rushed onto van to... More

Very interesting. Laura combined with Oak Alley is a good day's outing if a bit spendy. Oak Alley is a photographer's dream. The trip is a good history lesson and you are able to see different styles of plantations. My kids were especially moved by the slave cabins and engravings that can be seen on the woodwork of the Laura.... More
