The tour was amazing, the tour guide was super friendly and he was very knowledgable about the property and the vast history of the home. He made it fun and enjoyable for everyone in the group!
This was my second time visiting Houmas House and it was even better than the last! We decided to start with lunch first at Cafe Burnside and omg it was incredible. The buffet is worth every single penny! The fried catfish was literally the best I've ever had and the bread pudding should have some kind of award! After we stuffed ourselves silly, we met up with our tour guide, Suzanna. She rang the bell and started our tour off with a bang! When you enter the house, it's like hearing that "AAAAAaaaaaaAHHHHHH" theme music. It's so gorgeous inside. I love all the stories that are told about the home and its' antiques, art and artifacts. Esp the vampire slayer kit from anne rice! This home is handicap accessible as well as are the grounds. The grounds actually remind me of a botanical garden. Go check this place out and ask for Suzanna as your tour guide, you won't be disappointed!
Our tour guide was awesome. I think her name was Sue Ellen, Bobby Sue, or something like that.
Super knowledgable, super friendly, made the whole experience come to life for my wife and i.
Thank you for a great experience.
The Cajun Experience - Combo Swamp & Plantation Guided Tour with Transportation From New Orleans

From rugged Louisiana bayou to refined Southern majesty, this combo wildlife and plantation tour delivers the best of...
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.

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.

Oak Alley and Laura are two plantations that are a must see in Louisiana! Oak Alley is incredibly beautiful and Laura has some fascinating stories. Both portray an honest depiction of the lives of the owners and slaves before and after the civil war.
It was very educatimg
Very easy to make reservations. I did mine by phone. Laura Plantation was the best tour. Logan our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Oak Alley we did not experience this.
Destrehan Plantation Admission & Guided Tour

Destrehan is a great place for anyone's first visit to a plantation. It's very close to New Orleans, only about a 36 min drive. Checking in is easy inside the gift shop and the majority of grounds are handicap friendly. The plantation home itself even has an elevator that can take you to the second floor! Our tour guide, Judy was very nice and dressed head to toe in her period costume despite the 90-degree heat and humidity. Very educational!

The driver and host were infor worked well together site seeing information while going to and from each location. Buses where very clean..lil chilly. The Plantation was nice...The tour host was very knowledgeable.. Just feel like they should add more information about the life of a slave. The swamp tour was right on point. Guide really knew the swamp never saw so many gators of all sizes!!!!
Guide Susan was a great history source for the subject given. Once at the plantation you get to have another guide for the plantation alone. This demonstrates and informs you of what the educational history books do not. I highly recommend this tour also with the second part the Swamps tour. Our guide was very informed and involve her persona; history to influence how much residents truly depended on their own doe servival and self reliance.
Very informative and fun afternoon.

Our bus driver gave us some great stories about the cities and the culture. We had amazing food for lunch which was a buffet. We went to 2 plantations, Oak Alley plantation and Laura Plantation. Both plantations were breath taking, however, our tour guide at the Laura plantation was so passionate about the history she really brought the experience to life. I want to give kudos to Lindie our Laura guide. Highly recommended
Everything went flawlessly. Our boat driver was so professional and personal at the same time. I’ve never had such a close up experience and not been afraid for my life! The alligator was litterally 3 inches away from us but our boat driver/ tour guide was in complete control. I would rate him and the experience as a 10 star rating !

Our trip was Fantastic!! Our driver Brianna was the best.
She was so friendly, informative,
Just all around a great lady.
She went above and beyond my daughter left her sunglasses in her van and she brought them back!! Really great lady ❤️
Although the Whitney Tour was informative, an added pleasure was the dear family that provided reliable, pleasant transportation from New Orleans to the plantation district. Hats off to United Front for true hospitality.
