Our guide, Stephen, was excellent. I learned much more than I expected. I appreciated his thorough overview of the grounds, the owners, the slaves, the business, and the politics of the area during that time. It was extremely informative and am looking forward to visiting again.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We had a pretty good idea of what to expect based on writeups we had seen. And friends had told us that these two plantations were historically authentic, not tourist traps. Both houses (Laura and Oak Alley) were beautifully restored, and both plantations made a real effort to explain what life was really like back then, including the back-breaking work by the slaves to plant and harvest the sugar cane. We enjoyed the history lesson, the impressive buildings, and extensive grounds. Very well done tour, at both places. Highly recommended!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Wasn't sure about the trip shock thing when we went to make the reservation but it worked out great. The plantation tours were both a lot of fun. Very informative with good tour guides. We drove ourselves out do could take as much time as we wanted at the sites. Would record these two plantations to anyone. Lots of walking though.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

If you have a car, you can purchase a combo ticket to these plantations on trip shock.com and drive to the plantations which are located a few miles from each other. I showed the ticket attendant my cell phone email with the voucher number from tripshock.com and it was easy. Get to the first plantation early to avoid large tours. I went to Oak Alley first, got a personal tour of the Big House shortly after they opened. Don't miss the slave quarters and walk around the beautifully kept grounds. Second tour was Laura: a Creole Plantation. This was a completely different type of sugar cane plantation tour and the guide had fun stories to tell that were very interesting. Overall, a fun experience!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

We booked several tours and activities through trip shock for our recent vacation to New Orleans. Not only did we get good deals, but their customer support was fantastic. Several times we had to change or cancel plans and a simple phone call was all it took to reschedule or get a refund. I would definitely recommend trip shockVerified TripShock! Traveler Review

Really enjoyed the way these two plantations were put together in a combo tour. Both beautiful in their own way, but both very different. Glad we got to see the two of them. Make sure you have your confirmation number with you; we needed it at Oak Alley.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review

Alley Oak Plantation grounds was beautifully landscaped, especially the huge oak trees covered with the resurrection fern (Spanish Fern) We enjoyed walking the grounds to feel the history of the sugar cane owners, families, especially the slaves and their quarters. The food we ate at the restaurant was delicious. The Laura was much more enjoyable because we had a tour guide. He was excellent, knowledgable, friendly, allowed time for questions. We liked the history behind the buildings, people, and experiences. I will recommend both to other travelers. Thank you continuing to offer visits for others to enjoy.Verified TripShock!

Great combo to tour in a day. Both plantations are close to each other and take a slightly different approach to "telling the story". Not being plantation "junkies", we felt two in one day was plenty.Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
