We were not told in advance that the drive out to the plantations (Laura And Oak Alley) would be over an hour and 20 minutes. This seems like important information for those tourists who may have special needs. Also, our driver, Lorraine, had the vehicle A/C on so cold and full blast, that we were freezing and very uncomfortable during the drive. We were taken first to Laura Plantation for a longer than necessary period of time to tour the whole place and by the time Lorraine came back to pick us up to take us on to Oak Alley, it was 4:00pm and the restaurant closed at 3:00pm. Also as she dropped us off in the parking lot at Oak Alley she loudly announced that she would be leaving to head back to New Orleans in 55 minutes and if we didn't want to be stranded, we had better be at the bus on time. We had to cut the tour short somewhat to meet the 55 minute deadline, then rode an hour and a half back to the city on VERY EMPTY stomachs in a cold bus. Very disappointed that Tripshock would set us up on an inferior tour at such a considerable cost ($189.00 for 2 people). Will not go through Tripshock again.

Seeing the plantations was exciting and informative. I's like to make a special commendation to Pam, our guide at Laura Plantation. She was entertaining and completely captivating, making the history of the people and the place come alive. I'll recommend the tour to anyone I know who is going to New Orleans.

Our driver Enika was great! She was knowledgeable and accommating. I enjoyed the tours but was under the impression we would have more time at each plantation. We were rushed through Oak Alley and had no time to ask questions.

I am sorry but I can't recall the name of our tour guide at Laura plantation. She did an outstanding historical recount of the times and families at Laura. She was pleasant and blended in humorous comments through out the entire tour. Very enjoyable and educational. Our tour was on Tuesday March 12th.

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.

Both my wife and myself really enjoyed the Plantations we toured. We were picked up @ our Hotel on time by Cajun Encounters. The driver & trainee were very courteous & very knowledgeable about our tour. The entire experience was very enjoyable & we will definitely book tours with them in the future.
LAURA plantation

If you only see one plantation this us a must. Our guide Rose was exceptional. The plantation his a really interesting history and was run by 4 generations of females. Furnished throughout. The tour guide really brings the story of the family, slaves and history to life. Oak Alley was good too, We did both but if I had only time for one it Would definitely be Laura. The tour company was good too.
