  • This tour for 2 plantations was cheaper than other companies ($90/person) and they pick up at hotels. I scheduled and paid online; however, I didn't get a lot of information from the website regarding pick up time and details. I called and was able to get information without issue. Our pick up was a little delayed due to extra loading time needed at a previous stop. The van was at full capacity and HOT - the air conditioning wasn't working properly. We received a great deal of information from our tour guide on the way to the plantations. The Oak Alley Plantation was absolutely gorgeous. A little commercialized but enjoyable. The tour guide, Samuel, was knowledgeable and nice. The one negative that really bothered me was the slave cabins - they weren't realistic and gave the impression that the slaves had a charming life in quaint cabins. The Laura Plantation tour was fantastic - our tour guide, Al, was entertaining and knowledgeable. He also gave us bonus information about Acadians/Canjuns - before which I didn't have any knowledge of and found myself looking up more information about the culture. Al didn't gloss over the lives of the slaves or how they were treated before and after the Civil War. The reason for the 3 stars was the transportation; while our tour guide was pleasant, the van's air conditioning did not work properly which made for a very uncomfortable 2+ hour ride - it was actually a relief to be out of the van because at least there was relief of air conditioned buildings and the breeze from the Mississippi. We were in the back seat of the van so we got the added bonus of the condensation from the non-functioning air conditioner POURING water down our backs at every turn on the way back to the city. The traffic was a bit much on the way back to the city and I guess the driver wanted to get back as soon as possible so we were "offered" the opportunity to walk blocks back to our hotel instead of being dropped off at the door - this was actually the better option because we were able to get off the van! I called the company and complained; the representative was kind and understanding and refunded me a portion of the cost of the tour. This rating would have been a 4-4.5 if the 2+ hour ride wasn't so miserable. Hopefully, this is something easily fixed and won't be an issue for future customers

  • Absolutely beautifu,I could have stayed there all day.We had a very good tour guide. Must see if in New Orleans.

  • The tour is OK but definitely not worth the $17 admission. I wouldn't have done it if I had known how little there was to see.

  • Wonderful guide!! With a perfect narrative tour out to the plantations!!

  • Elmore has great sense of humour. Extremely knowledgeable about new Orleans /Louisiana.
