Our tour guide, Jacques, picked us up at our hotel and entertained us with facts about Louisiana until we reached the Laura Plantation. Tours at Laura and Oak Alley Plantations were really informative and interesting. Jacques gave us great tips on the trip back to the hotel about restaurants, local attractions and more historical facts. Even the teens were interested... More

Okay first what to expect. This tour company picks up everyone on the tour at their hotel and lodgings which can be allover town and traffic happens. In our case the tour driver called and confirmed our location and what time he would be by to pick us up the night before. 7:30 am in front of our hotel, we... More

So glad we booked this tour. We were picked up at our hotel front door by Richard, who is an awesome bus driver/tour guide. He drove us out to the plantations, which was probably over an hour drive, and he kept up a constant flow of information the entire way. All of his topics flowed into each other, and we... More

We toured the Oak Alley Plantation, the Evergreen Plantation and added the Cajun Pride Swamp Tour. Richard, our tour bus driver, was great. He is very knowledgable and I learned a lot about New Orleans and the surrounding area. The tour at Oak Alley is a very good one--I only wish we would have had more time there. The house... More

We went on the tour that saw both Oak Alley and the Laura Plantation. It was great. First, our tour guide/drive was Jacques, and told us so much about the history of New Orleans and the plantations. We learned much about what we were going to see that made the plantation tours way more interesting. The plantation tours were both... More

We took the plantation tour and saw Oak Alley and Evergreen. We also combined the swamp tour option, which i will discuss later. If you like Gone with the wind or civil war history, then this is a tour that shouldn't be missed. The tour guide picked us up early at our hotel and drove us to Oak Alley first.... More

Comfortable bus and our tour guide talked nonstop about history, culture and the plantations. He gave us a lot of background about the area and the levees. The plantations were very nice. We would definitely do this one again.

I was waffling on whether I wanted to pay $80 for this tour, but I was immediately glad that I did. And I can say the day was well worth the money. First, Jacque, our driver, was knowledgeable, interesting, funny, and authentic. He made what would likely have been a rather boring drive out to the plantations, seem to fly... More

Our adventure began early in the morning when we were picked up at the condo where we were staying by our driver/guide, Elmore. Elmore was a delight, an extremely well informed guide and historian, giving us the history of much of New Orleans which he communicated to us on the way to and from the tours we had booked. The...

Elmore was an amazing tour guide. When we booked, we thought it was going to be a recording we listened to. It was not. Elmore told us of the history of the places we drove by, the draining systems, the tombs, Cajun and creole, and so much more. He made the trip so memorable for us. I learned so, so... More
