  • Jacques was AMAZING! I toured the Laura plantation and even though we had to improvise and take a different route our driver did the greatest job at keeping the the information and fun facts flowing . I got first hand history about New Orleans its self which was great to learn as well! I could tell he enjoyed doing his job and he did it well! I was able to experience sooo much on my first trip here and I KNOW I will book atleast 1 of these tours each time I now visit this wonderful place! THANK YOU!

  • Talk about a great experience. The knowledge our guide shared with us was amazing. Bus is clean and air conditioned.

  • This was an awesome tour. Our tour guide was Jacques. He was fun and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend the tour. Fun and informative!

  • Took this tour a few weeks ago. When people ask me my very favorite part of my trip, I would honestly say this tour. We had a great guide named Jacques, he added so much history, fun and humor to our trip. Some tours can be very boring, especially one that’s around 8 hours, but not this one. I can honestly say I had zero moments of boredom. Everything about this day was interesting and made me want to come back to New Orleans to learn and see more. Highly recommend!

  • My friends and I visited New Orleans for Mardi Gras and a Bachelorette celebration. Amidst all the partying, we wanted to get the most out of our visit - see some nature and learn more on the culture and history. On this tour, we were the first group to arrive at Oak Alley Plantation because our meet up time was SUPER early in the morning. Pick up was from our hotel, really appreciated that. And it was worth it to get started so early. Arriving at the Oak Alley Plantation before the other crowds allowed us the ability to reflect peacefully and with reverence on the history of slavery, commerce, architecture, stories of the families that lived and worked there, while showing respect for all the pain that was endured. Our tour guide / driver was Madison. He was really great with setting us up for what to expect and not shying away from the sad and horrible sides of American history and the atrocities of slavery. He was open, intelligent, and empathetic, I greatly appreciated the way he presented his stories, his pacing and timing in his speech, especially being a young millennial, asserted an intuitive wisdom way beyond his years. As a local, Madison gave interesting anecdotes that made the tour more personal and intimate, and he well prepped us for what we were going to experience. Prior to going on this tour, I had a few friends mention that it made them uncomfortable, the idea of touring a plantation, because they thought it would be glorifying the place and not respecting the pain and suffering of the enslaved. I went into the tour not knowing much of what to expect and I was really grateful that Madison wasn't afraid of and didn't tip toe around the tough reality that slavery was a huge part of the history. In fact Madison was so good at his job, he made the tour guides, who did a fine job, at the two plantations we visited, Oak Alley and Laura Plantation, seem amateur and simply not as good. We had a full bus that morning and everything went very smooth, the ride to and from was very comfortable. The grounds were beautiful and the overviews on property were good. I do wish I had a little more time to spend on reflection and walking the grounds, but as with any group tour, a schedule to keep things moving along is necessary. Highly recommend - Request Madison if he's available.
