    This was a most enjoyable, interesting Tour. Being picked up at our Hotel was appreciated. The person who drove and took us to the two Plantations spoke us to us clearly and interestingly on the way there with so many details and knowledge. A guide at each of the Plantations took us around and gave us the history of either the main house as well as the outside where there was beautiful trees over 200 years.
    The Lara Plantation was "a must" to visit. A young guide full of knowledge, old and new, spoke very clearly and had all our attention around this beautiful, well kept home and land. I even bought a book relating to early days of the plantation and the different races living there. We had an amazing excursion and I recommend it very well for all people: Families, Friends, Business, Solo, Couples.

    We really enjoyed this tour with our guide Dylan. His information was very interesting as well as the guides we had at Laura's and Oak Alley Plantation. Small group size was fantastic(10).
