Laura plantation tour was informative and our tour guide took us through the house, the grounds and the slave quarter. It was good and he knew a lot. The oak alley tour was fast, rushed and our tour guide only took us through the home (which was only the hallways because all rooms were blocked off except one). He took us up to 2nd floor but not 3rd and again all rooms were blocked off so we peeked in at the rooms but were not allowed to enter. They did not take us on a grounds tour or slave quarters tour. This plantation home was huge but the guide/tour was short and not too informative . The main story was the house was built for lady but she didn't even like it and left. Would liked to have had a grounds tour, slave quarters tour, more about history of slaves and also been able to walk on all levels of home and walk through the rooms

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.

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.
