Great tour! We where only 5 people on the van. Niji was our tour guide and she was knowledgable and had that very characteristic southern charm. Highly recommended.

Thank you very much to our tour guide Ginnie. She added so much to the experience of the tour with her commentary of local knowledge on the drive to and from the airboats. The airboat tour itself is one of the best activities I have ever participated in. Highly recommend this activity and Tours by Isabelle.

Our driver/guide Kat was fantastic, only 2 minor disappointments were, being on a time schedual you couldnt look around plantations much if at all after guided tour, and the airboat needs to go longer, it was fantastic!!

Our guide Dylan was awesome. I don't think there was a single moment during the ride out to, and back from, the Laura and Oak Alley plantations that he wasn't sharing something interesting about the area and it's history. Would highly recommend.

This tour was very good, I was abit late but they were happy to give me a call. Travelling on my own was not a problem. Ginnie was a great tour guide and was able to make all this trip so interesting that I would recommend it to anyone. I didn't think I would like the Bayou part but it... More

I though laura plantation was good, but oak alley is the most beautiful place! It is everything you can imagine of a southern plantation. The tourguide/bus driver was great and you learn a lot about Louisiana history on top of seeing the great plantation.

We learned more during our Grand Tour than in our four days in New Orleans. Ginnie provided a comprehensive commentary on Louisiana past and present with plenty of anecdotes to entertain us. The bayou ride and the Oak Alley and Laura plantation experiences were also well worthwhile. Because we were not a large group (13) the tour had a much... More

Our guide Anna is very interesting and explains us lot of aspects of New Orleans history during the drive. The van was full, so it is not very comfortable, when you happen to get a half seat on the bench ! We learn a lot at The Laura plantation. The guide Bryan makes the difference for the visit. As for... More

We just got back from the Grand Tour with Ginnie. We had such a great day! Each tour guide on location was wonderful, informative, fun, and entertaining. Ginnie's knowledge of the Louisiana history, New Orleans and everything else was both astounding and amazing. Well worth every penny. Highly recommended!!!
