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....

I was a little bla-zeh about doing a plantation tour. I didn't really know what to expect. I'm glad we did it. Hotel pick up (fairly early -7.35 but it meant we would be back by 2pm and it wouldn't take up our whole day). The driver Richard was very informative. I had no idea how much there was to... More

The grounds of the plantation were stunning. The home itself was smaller than I expected but so very well maintained. Our tour guide was delightful.

....this tour is for you! Beautiful Oak Alley and Evergreen Plantations are so worth the drive. Our guide had so much personality and was so full of informative history about the area and the homes; the grounds are beautiful (lovely little gift shop and dining venue), but the actual houses just take your breath away! So lovely and when you... More

Our family did the Laura and Oak Alley tour. It was a great trip and definitely recommend. Our bus driver was very friendly and gave some narration out to the plantations. It is about 45 min coach ride west of New Orleans. The Laura plantation was our favorite and mostly because of our young guide who had a great grasp... More

Our guide Jacques picked us up on time and spent the entire drive giving us an amazing history lesson on New Orleans and the region. We visited Oak Alley and Laura plantations. It was well organized and a fun day. The plantations were beautiful and the tours at each one were excellent. Well worth the price.

I needed information about Old River Plantation. My question was can we only take the plantation tour and the representative said they are and adventure tour. I asked if she had the number to the plantation and she said that I could look it up on line. I thanked her for not helping me.

Lisa P still doesn't understand that Old River Road is not a plantation, but is a plantation tour company that visits several plantations. She wanted the number to "Old River" plantation to tour it herself. We asked her to look up the name of the plantation she wanted on line and she became angry when she didn't get a number.... More
