Wonderful time and it was a small group so it had a private and personal feel to it. Well worth the price. It was an all day event. It made it a less stressful day, with no driving, they will come by and pick you up at our hotel. Ample time to visit the sights and photo opportunities.

This are old magnificent mansions on these plantations. Have done this tour twice. Oak Alley stands out, but they are all just wondetful homes from a time gone by.

This tour took 6.5 hours...a long time to go when you are not interested in learning about rich white people who owned slaves. I wanted to hear more about the black slaves and what they went through. Best part of the tour was listening to the bus driver, the actual tours by the plantation staff was bizarre because they did... More

This is an old plantation that has been mostly restored. The grounds house old slave quarters, as well as have a restored mansion, with guided tours. There is also a restaurant on site, which was decently priced with good food.

Go for the beauty, the luster, the history, the glamor and nostalgia of it all. The door opens magically to your imagination, and (especially women of my age...how we cried over Melanie and Ashley and all wanted to be Scarlett) seep yourself in the charm of the old South. The alley of oaks is spectacular. We saw it in December... More

The river road Plantations are a rare and delightful experience into the Antebellum South with insight into the way life was in the cotton picking South for master and slave. Mansions reveal the wealth

Nick was our driver and a tremendously vibrant and knowledgable tour guide. From the time we left our hotel to the time we were dropped off at our first plantation, Nick filled us in with all sorts of history and fun facts of Louisiana and New Orleans. I would have liked to have extra time built in to our day... More

Great bus, fabulous commentary on the way to our first plantation, Oak Alley. Couldn't ask for better. Time was obviously of the essence and everyone was told of times that they must be at certain locations. Oak Alley Plantation was beautiful and Hannah the tour guide for this plantation was very knowledgable and kept the tour totally engaged with her... More

The trip to and fro was worth the time in itself. The plantations were guided by those in costume and the information of the families that had lived there was interesting. I found it fascinating that the beds were so short and the closets were so small. Also that even though there were enormous public rooms, the bedrooms were not... More
