The night before our tour the company confirmed the trip with us and then picked us up at the hotel the next morning around 7:30a.m. Our tour driver was wonderful! He was very full of... More

Each one is unique and has its own architecture and style as well as its particular history,but all are fascinating. Tours are possible in many houses and gardens and some have restaurants and rooms to rent. You can't understand the South unless you see how they lived and worked before the War between the States.

This was one of my highlights when we visited NOLA. Our tour guide, Jacques, picked us up promptly at our hotel. There was only a total of 8 of us taking the tour this day and it was wonderful! Jacques was very knowledgeable, and shared information continuously. There was never a lack of information. He welcomed questions and seemed to... More

I selected this tour company because of the opportunity to get off the beaten path, take a more scenic drive, and be in a smaller group. We did the two plantation and swamp tour package and very glad we did. Our tour bus driver gave an excellent narrative of what we would see, the history of the area, his personal... More

Our guide, Richard was the best. He shared so much information with you that you felt that you were a real part of the plantation experience and what it has meant to the development of the area and what it continues to mean. Oak Alley is one offering that is not to be missed. You could really spend a day... More

We did the Oak Alley and Laura Plantations and swamp tour. We had excellent customer service and felt taken care of during our tours. Our tour guide was very prompt. He shared a lot of history with us to and from the plantations. Both plantations were worth visiting. They are both very different and give a good overview of what... More

This was a long day but good. The van picked us up at our hotel. The driver was knowledgeable and efficient. We went first to Oak Alley plantation, had a tour there and then to the Laura plantation, my favorite, another tour. Then lunch, the restaurant had all our orders, food came fast and was okay. Then off to a... More

Originally, my husband and I were supposed to take the Oak Alley/Evergreen Tour. However, because of filming at evergreen, we had to vist Laura instead. No regrets! From booking to ending the tour, this company is seamless in their handling of this tour. Nick, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable on numerous subjects regarding the plantations as well as the city.... More

I did the Plantation/Swamp combo tour. It was great to check out the plantations and hear all about life in Louisiana. It was also very sad to hear about the treatment of the slaves but informative. We visited Oak Alley and Laura Plantation. We wanted to see Evergreen but the night before the agency informed us that it was closed.... More
