We booked the plantation tour directly with them online and save $5 per person. At the time of booking you have a choice of Oak Alley and another plantation like Laura, Evergreen. Joseph and so on. We decided in Evergreen and Oak Alley. Elmer our tour guide called us the night before and picked us up promptly at our hotel... More

Took the oak alley/evergreen plantation tour. The bus picked us up at our hotel and the driver was a wealth of information going and coming back. The plantations gave us a feeling of back in time and amazing to see the original slave houses at Evergreen. Both areas are very well kept and a great lesson in life back then.

We visit NOLA every year, but this is the first time we have done a tour outside of the Quarter. This is a great one - they pick you up and drop you off at the hotel, arrange lunch if you're touring all day, and give you great information while ferrying you between stops. Be sure to check out the... More

We recently spent a week in NOLA, and the 2 plantations/swamp tour day was definitely my favorite. Jean Pierre, our guide, was very knowledgeable and made the hour drive out to the plantations go by quickly. The tours of Oak Alley and Evergreen plantations were top notch with very well-informed guides & time to explore on our own & get... More

We toured Oak Alley and Laura with the added swap tour after the plantations. A minibus picked us up from our hotel. As soon as all passengers were aboard, we left for Oak Alley. Our guide was knowledgable, explaining and sharing information throughout the entire trip. Oddly enough, compared to the tour guides at the featured attractions, the driver rambled... More

Ok I really hate to be critical when our guide was so great but I would recommend doing things differently. What we did; picked up at our hotel at 7:45am, told we could not bring coffee on the bus, made 4 more stops then drove for nearly an hour. Toured Oak Alley loaded up and toured Laura. Got back to...

A truly unique experience. ...The tour takes you to both plantations in a very comfortable bus and our tour guide Richard, was charming and knowledgeable. Oak Alley is visually stunning and the Laura tour was so "real time" because of the great history. ...I feel I was enriched by this tour. ..ps... Please leave your small children behind. ..it is...

We decided to book this tour because we wanted to see what these old plantations looked like. Boy did they have it good. Located in Vacherie just short drive on a bus. 25 acres and built in 1837 and located on The Millionaire River. The Oak Trees are amazing. They form a canopy over the road going to the house...

Unlike my normal travel pattern, where I do a hop on hop off bus or venture out on my own a lot, I specifically chose to take several guided tours during my recent visit to New Orleans. On top of my list of things to see/do were a couple of plantations and the swamps. The Old River Road Plantation Adventure... More

The afternoon tour was great! Bus pick up was right on time & our driver was a wealth of information on the drive out. Oak Alley was stunning and we had a wonderful guide. My one complaint was that we had very little time to explore the grounds or visit the guest shop. Laura was equally spectacular, especially the gardens... More
