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!!!

Tours by Isabelle was a great experience and one of the highlights of our trip. We were picked up promptly at our hotel and then taken about an hour out of the French Quarter to Lafitte, where the airboats are. Joseph, our driver, was incredible. He gave us so much information about New Orleans, the culture, the history, the food,... More

Our tour of the swamp on the bayou was really fun, we had a nice breeze on the boat ride and saw many alligators!! We had a delicious lunch of creole cuisine . And then went on to visit Oak Alley and Laura plantations, very different from each other. All of our tour guides throughout the day were very knowledgeable... More

My daughter and I just did the Laura and Oak Valley Plantation Tour which I had done before with another company but really enjoyed our guide Ellen! She added so much to our experience, from the time she picked us up at our hotel in the French Quarter until our return! We learned about interesting facts every step of the... More
