We had a great time with Richard the driver who was very knowledgable and we learnt a lot from him about the history, hurricane and geography - we visited Oak Alley first and it was an interesting experience to see a plantation house and then we went to Laura where our guide was very enthusiastic and proud of her history...

Nick was our driver! He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us so much information on the way to our tours. He told us about all of the plantation tours offered so we could make a more educated decision of which ones we wanted to go on and he gave us the option to change tours if we wanted. We toured...

We went on the plantations tour on a Friday in low season. The bus was very comfortable and the ride was interesting. Jacques showed us numerous landmarks and gave us tons of information about the history of Louisiana, new Orleans and the plantations we were about to visit. He added personal anecdotes that made everything easier to put into context.... More

This tour was really great. Our bus driver was extremely knowledgeable and told us a lot of history of NOLA. We toured Oak Alley and Evergreen. Our tour guide Kevin at Evergreen was awesome. The only thing is I wish we had more time to explore the plantations. I felt it was too time constricted. Oak Alley was my favorite.... More

My husband and I did the Oak Alley & Evergreen Plantation tour with transportation. This tour takes the majority of the day (our pick up was 7:45 and we didn't get dropped off until 2:30 ish). The Oak Alley Plantation was amazing to see, very informational. Our driver then took us over to Evergreen plantation (we were running a little... More

While we enjoyed the history and the pace of the tours, the tour guide at Laura was incredible with not only history telling, but included a lot of anecdotes. We wished we could stay longer.

Our family of five booked the Oak Alley/Evergreen plantation tour and had Jacque as a driver. He did a wonderful job telling us about the area on the drive out and back. He was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We would definitely book with their company again!

I really only signed my husband and I up for the tour because my mother in law raved about it, but I'm so glad I did! For our drive out there we had Nick, a very knowledgeable young guy who gave us all kinds of information about the places we passed (but wouldn't be seeing) and on New Orleans/Louisiana history....
