Traveled to New Orleans to sail on a cruise. Arrived early to experience the New Orleans area. Chose the Swamp/Plantation combo tour and we're very happy we did. Our guide in the swamp from Cajun Pride was beyond excellent. SO INFORMATIVE. We all thought "airboat", but so happy we didn't go that route. The slower traverse gave us more time to experience it all. The plantation was pretty great too. Amazing sights and the background information was enlightening. Only downside......wish there had been more time in both locations. I highly recommend the tour!
Thoroughly enjoyed both tours. Guides and drivers where very knowledgeable! Super glad we did these tours. Thank you.
We learned a lot on this dual excursion. It was fascinating to tour the swamp and hear the tales of our entertaining boat captain. Alligators rock! The plantation tour was also excellent due to our young, articulate, and informative guide. The only thing I would change is more time on our own in the Laura Plantation museum. It highlighted personal stories from the lives and living conditions of the Laura plantation slaves. We appreciated the historical research.

It was an interesting tour of the plantation. The bus host was extremely informative and added a great deal to the overall experience. Only thing was that the bus window in front of our seats was loose and rattled the entire ride to and from the plantation.
The guide Mary was great! Informative Driver was excellent as well

We took the Oak Alley and Whitney tour. We had an informative bus driver (Kintrell) who kept us very entertained. All the guides were great. It would have been nice to have been able to spend more time at each plantation, but with 2 plantations to visit, there was not enough time. Since there is not much time there, our bus driver recommended we eat at Oak Alley dehli for lunch as it takes less time than the restaurant there. Our bus guide gave us tips in places to see and places to eat while in New Orleans. We had a great time!
The Whitney and Laura Plantations were amazing. Our tour guides at both were fantastic! I highly recommend taking this tour for anyone wanting to learn more about the slave experience on a sugar plantation.
The tour was really great, lots of historic information provided in transit to and from the plantations by Dionne, and then the tours at both Whitney and Laura were great—very different plantations and perspectives for the tours. It would have been better if there had been a specific time allocated for lunch, as we had not been told about any lunch time allocated, until we asked and was told there was no specific lunch time, but we could just have to eat any snacks we brought on the bus and quickly eat something before or after tours at the plantations. Not a big problem, but communication could have been better when signing up for the tour or at the tour, so we knew what to expect. Both these plantations were very worthwhile to visit and learn.
