Great Tour!!

The Whitney and Laura Plantations were amazing. Our tour guides at both were fantastic! I highly recommend taking this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about the slave experience on a sugar plantation.

The tour was really great, lots of historic information provided in transit to and from the plantations by Dionne, and then the tours at both Whitney and Laura were great—very different plantations and perspectives for the tours. It would have been better if there had been a specific time allocated for lunch, as we had not been told about any lunch time allocated, until we asked and was told there was no specific lunch time, but we could just have to eat any snacks we brought on the bus and quickly eat something before or after tours at the plantations. Not a big problem, but communication could have been better when signing up for the tour or at the tour, so we knew what to expect. Both these plantations were very worthwhile to visit and learn.

Bus guide “Midge”, was very knowledgeable and engaging. Tour started and returned within the time promised and we really enjoyed the contrast between Whitey and Oak Alley Plantations

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. The Laura Plantation Tour was good as well. It is more about the history of the family but does touch on the slaves. Steve was our guide and was also very knowledgeable. He was very pleasant and gave a very detailed history of the owners and their lives. Our only issue was that the tour felt a bit rushed.
