Giselle the tour guide was prompt, knowledgeable, funny with a sweet laugh, showed concern re her guests being warm and dry on swamp airboat tour, artistic.
Best all day excursions to start with swamp tour then the plantations with lunch.
High class tour
Wonderful time with Giśele. Very knowledgeable and answered questions. Saw plenty of gators and wildlife. Would recommend. Ask for Giśele.
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

The bus driver was funny and knowledgeable and very helpful!
The good: The tour guides were nice. Bus drivers were knowledgeable. Plantation was beautiful and informative.
The bad: our hotel pickup was late and unbeknownst to us, we were holding up a van load of other tourists so when we got on the bus, the displeasure was noticeable. The driver kept mentioning our late arrival and impact to the time at the plantation. I have no idea why our pickup was late.
Rose, our plantation guide was great. So full of history and fun facts. She was as good as our driver back was bad.
Our bus driver was horrible, loud, yelled at passengers to get off the bus. She had on headphones while driving.

Both were excellent. The guides were well versed on the plantations. Laura was my favorite.
It was interesting to see the difference between the creole and Anglo plantations.
This was probably the most informative tour I have ever taken. Jacob, I think that was his name:) was the best tour guide I have ever had. He was at the Laura plantation. I learned so much and immediately went to the library afterwards to learn even more!
Laura plantation was so enriched with creole history. Oak alley was amazing. Highly recommend both stops if you visit New Orleans.

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.

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!

Logan was an excellent guide... extremely knowledgeable, with an engaging presentation. Thouroughly enjoyed this tour!
Suzanna was such a delightful tour guide at Houmas House. Not only was she informative, but sweet, polite, and patient towards all of her guests.
The garden was so beautiful and serene. So many photo opportunities. We were hoping for one of the many dragon flies to rest on our shoulders for good luck, but that didn’t happen. Instead, we settled for some dragon fly souvenirs from their cute gift shop. Their gift shop has a great selection of books and children's gifts, as well. We purchased a Louisiana cookbook, which was recommended by one of the sales associates, for my mother-in-law.
My husband and I had been to the Laura Plantation before, during our last visit to NOLA, but this was a special birthday trip for my mother-in-law and we wanted her to experience Laura Plantation because it reminded my husband of where they were raised on Guam. Joseph, our tour guide, was very, very knowledgeable and was great at putting everything into perspective in today’s world. In fact, my husband and I enjoyed this visit better than our first. We learned so much more this time around.
Tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable and kept tour fresh and engaging. Knew her stuff!!
