Just for back from this tour. We saw the Laura and Houmas house. The tour guides were fantastic and very informative. But the best part easy the trip to and from with our driver Deborah... What a wonderful person. We just loved her. Make sure you do this tour.

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to a transfer point for our tour in La Place, LA about 40 mins outside of NO. Then we continued on with our group to Oak Alley plantation, which was another 30 mins of travel. We arrive 1 hr and 30 mins after leaving our hotel, so be prepared for a bit of travel. The driver did a good job of pointing out interesting facts, landmarks, etc along the way and mixed in a few jokes here and there.

Once we arrived at Oak Alley we had about 35 minutes to look around on our own and then we had a 50 min tour of the plantation main house by the on site staff and then another 15 minutes to look around the property. We could have used another 30-60 mins to see more but by 4:30 we needed to leave to head back to NO. We arrived back at the hotel around 5:45 PM. Total cost per person is $54. Overall a good afternoon.

Make sure you take time to read about the lives of the slaves on this vast sugar plantation and how they lived before and after they were freed. Also there is a great video on how sugar cane is grown, harvested and processed into molasses and ultimately granular sugar. The front drive of the plantation is lined with 300-year-old live oaks, which is great for taking photos and just enjoying a stroll.

Our shuttle driver picked us up and drove us to the Houmas House Plantation. We were shown a nice video about the plantation on our way over. When we arrived and walked the through the property - what a BEAUTIFUL place! The gardens were exquisite and the tour of the inside of the home by a woman in period costume was very good. Our guide was informative and had a great sense of humor. The home was beautifully decorated in early 1800's style. We were very impressed. After the tour we were given lunch. I didn't have very high expectations for the meal but was I ever wrong. The food was delicious. The pumpkin bread pudding ..... WOW.

After lunch we were shuttled over to the next plantation: Oak Alley. Another beautiful place and the sight of the oak lined path in front of and behind the home was just beautiful. We were given a tour of the inside and it was also very good. Oak Alley's interior is larger than Houmas House and is also decorated in period furnishings. We were very satisfied with this tour, too.

A note about our shuttle driver: I don't remember his name but he was wonderful! He picked us up at our N.O. hotel on time, told us about the areas as we drove through them, answered our questions and was a very nice person. He was cheerful during the whole trip. Good job!

Overall we loved this set of tours, felt the quality was excellent. Actually, it was the highlight of our week long trip to New Orleans.

I went on the plantation tour of Laura and oak alley plantations. Although I preferred the Laura plantation it was good to see both as they are very different. Our tour guide/ bus driver was very knowledgeable and efficient. Learnt lots about history of New Orleans and life on plantations. Great day out. Recommend this half day tour if visiting New Orleans.

I took the tour to Oak Alley plantation. The bus driver talked throughout the trip but you could only hear him if you were in the front seat. I had barely time to go to the restroom once we arrived to the place where they take you to the different plantations. They then made me get into a bus to go and pick up other tourists and the come back to the same place. They only give you half an hour once you finish the plantation tour, which does not give you time to go to the exhibit.
