Great historians!

about 3 months ago
Our bus driver gave us some great stories about the cities and the culture. We had amazing food for lunch which was a buffet. We went to 2 plantations, Oak Alley plantation and Laura Plantation. Both plantations were breath taking, however, our tour guide at the Laura plantation was so passionate about the history she really brought the experience to life. I want to give kudos to Lindie our Laura guide. Highly recommended

AWesome Experience!

about 1 year ago
Everything went flawlessly. Our boat driver was so professional and personal at the same time. I’ve never had such a close up experience and not been afraid for my life! The alligator was litterally 3 inches away from us but our boat driver/ tour guide was in complete control. I would rate him and the experience as a 10 star rating !
