Review of Oak Alley & Laura Plantation Combo Tour From New Orleans

  • B. Pugh St. Louis, Mo May 22 2017 11:11am

    We were not told in advance that the drive out to the plantations (Laura And Oak Alley) would be over an hour and 20 minutes. This seems like important information for those tourists who may have special needs. Also, our driver, Lorraine, had the vehicle A/C on so cold and full blast, that we were freezing and very uncomfortable during the drive. We were taken first to Laura Plantation for a longer than necessary period of time to tour the whole place and by the time Lorraine came back to pick us up to take us on to Oak Alley, it was 4:00pm and the restaurant closed at 3:00pm. Also as she dropped us off in the parking lot at Oak Alley she loudly announced that she would be leaving to head back to New Orleans in 55 minutes and if we didn't want to be stranded, we had better be at the bus on time. We had to cut the tour short somewhat to meet the 55 minute deadline, then rode an hour and a half back to the city on VERY EMPTY stomachs in a cold bus. Very disappointed that Tripshock would set us up on an inferior tour at such a considerable cost ($189.00 for 2 people). Will not go through Tripshock again.

    Plantation tour

    Our driver Enika was great! She was knowledgeable and accommating. I enjoyed the tours but was under the impression we would have more time at each plantation. We were rushed through Oak Alley and had no time to ask questions.

    Good, but not great.

    Oak Alley was very interesting and our guide's presentation was very good. The Laura plantation? Not so much. Too many uninteresting details about the personal history of the owners throughout the years.

    Plantation Tour

    The driver and guides were witty, considerate, and provided good information, even with sweat dripping from their chins on that humid day to give us an appreciated plantation tour.
