    Nothing great

    The tour was too rushed and we could not spend enough time at either of the 2 plantations. Rain made things worse. n extra 2 hours would have been much better.

    Mostly Enjoyable

    The tour was very enjoyable. It is a great way to get to the plantations without renting a car and the buses are comfy. That being said, a little bit more information on the plantations on the drive out would be amazing, maybe the history or talking about other plantations or more history on the slavery aspect. Also, dropping people off needs to be improved, once we got back to the city, it was an hour and half before we dropped at our hotel, we circled it before being dropped of, we asked twice if we should get off and the bus driver just said we would get there.

    Plantation Tour

    Cajun Encounters rushed us along. On the phone I was told we would return around 5:30. That extra hour would have been nice to spend at Oak Alley. We had a nice tour at Laura's Plantation and the tour guide, Logan was great. Very enjoyable but we couldn't even visit the gift shop and use the restroom afterward as we were rushed out to make our tour at Oak Alley. We get to Oak Alley and immediately rush to our tour. I still had to use the restroom so we got left behind and didn't know where to go. Rushed frantically after roaming around trying to find our tour group. Afterward we had -0- time to explore the grounds and there was a lot that we missed. The Oak Alley tour was only to see the house and rush to the restaurant to meet our driver. No time to explore the grounds.
