Excellent tour and worth every dollar. Our guide Jacques was polite, entertaining and knowledgeable about the area. The plantation houses of Oak Alley and Laura were fascinating and we learnt so much about the history of the area. I would advise anyone thinking about this tour to book to take the early am one as you get there before the... More

We took the tour of Oak Valley and Lauren. Our tour guide is Charc. It definitely worth the money and drive. Oak Valley is the grandest plantation we have seen and perfect for pictures. It is exactly what you would imagine as the Twelve Oaks Plantations in Gone with the Wind. Because our guide picked us on time, we were... More

We loved this tour. The driver, Benjamin, gave an informative commentary there and back. He also happily answered questions and would drop us close to where ever we wanted on our return. At Oak Alley our guide Katie was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about this beautiful house. We found the same at Laura. Renee knew so much about the house... More

Great tour, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our guide, Jacques, was friendly, funny and informative. His commentary was interesting and engaging, and his driving exemplary. The plantations were breathtaking & fascinating but the highlight of the tour was Jacques' local knowledge & restaurant recommendations.

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
