    Double Plantation Tour

    The Whitney Plantation Tour was amazing!! It shows plantation life from the eyes of the slave and brings to light some facts that a lot of people want to keep hidden. It touches the heart and opens the mind. It is hard to believe that one human could be so cruel to another. We had Ali as our guide and would highly recommend him. His knowledge and understanding of the history of the plantation and slavery in general was remarkable. The pace of the tour was perfect, giving you time to reflect as you moved along. If you are in New Orleans - don't miss this tour. It is one that, once over, will make you want to bring awareness back home to your family and friends. ... read more

    Jim, thanks for the detailed review. Whitney is an view into the life of all people on the working plantations and puts the focus on people, rather than structures alone. Laura is an interesting look at a family business in another era and how the norms of the day reflected on those families. There is so much to see that we wish we could provide as much time as desired to explore both locations.

    A very pleasant day!

    Donald was an excellent driver the entire trip so I was completely relaxed. Ken was very informative as well as entertaining in his knowledge of our two plantations. Thank you so much.

    Oak Alley

    The tourof the main house is to rushed. They bring in the next group so quick that you do not have time for pictures. They were rather harsh in moving the group along. They seemed more interested in quantity of groups over the quality of the tours.

    Oak Alley manages the tours of the house. In certain seasons it is undoubtably busy and we apologize if they seemed unhospitable on the tours. We will certainly talk with them.

    Great locations, bad bus trip

    I rate the actual plantations at 5, but I rate the transportation company low. Reason being the bathroom was out of service according to the bus driver. I found it difficult to believe given the overall condition of the bus, which was very well kept. It seemed to me the bus driver only said that so he ( or someone else) wouldn’t have to clean the bathroom later. There were at least 25 people on the bus with me, most of which were in their fifties. We all had to ‘hold it’ both on the way to and from the plantation sites. This is simply inaceptable and the transportation company should provide basic needs like a working bathroom

    Wonderful!

    We really enjoyed our tour of Laura and Oak Alley. Our bus driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. He shared a lot of interesting facts. The tour guides shared a lot of interesting information about the plantations and shared all sides of life on the plantation. Both locations were beautiful even in January. Laura was our favorite. We felt we got more information and didn't feel as rushed as we did at Oak Alley. Although, we did sit down to eat at Oak Alley which took up some time. A little more time at the second location to account for food would have been preferred, but still, everything was worth the cost.
