    Whitney Plantation

    Very well set up. I loved the history even though it saddened me to know how the slaves lived. The memorial walls were amazing. Will definately go again. Our tour guide was also very knowledgeable, an overall wonderful learning experience. Great job guys.

    If you take only one plantation tour...this should be it.

    Wanted to take a plantation tour with the focus from the slaves aspect and this Gray line tour was the only one that did. A full half hour longer than the other tours with the information devoted to how the slaves lived and the untold struggles they were forced to endure. The focus is on their history, from being taken from Africa to arriving in the south (and New Orleans)and their hardships and survival both before and after the civil war. The trip was made even more enjoyable and educational during the hour long bus ride to and from the plantation by our knowledgeable driver Ken. He pointed out the highlights of New Orleans along the way with his own personal style. This is the tour if you really want to learn, understand and experience what slavery really was like in our history.

    Whitney plantation tour

    The tour with greyline was comfortable and informative. Tripshock offered a discounted price for the tour and the transaction went through well. I will use tripshock again.
