Great tours!

Great tours! You could easily spend hours at the Oakley Plantation but the tour guide at the Laura plantation was excellent and knowledgeable. The Oakly tour is the big house only and rest is self guided, the Laura is a fully guided tour. You can’t go wrong with either one!

Worth the money

Our driver was great and provided fun facts along the way. Our tour guide at the Laura Plantation was awesome and passionate about the history of the plantation. The tour guide at the Oak Alley Plantation was boring and you could tell he was reciting memorized lines. We loved the tours and learned a lot about the plantations’ history.

The guide pam in the laura plantation was extremely knowledgeable and a wonderful, interesting guide. We learnt so much on this plantation. Oak valley, although beautiful and interesting to see, did not have the same quality of guides and we found we received less information here.

Outstanding visit

The tour guide at Laura Plantation was outstanding. We walked away hearing information about this time in history that we were not aware of. I would think this is a must see for anyone interested in our history as a country. Our guide really painted the picture for what life was like living on this plantation.

2xs the History

Both tours were great and informative of the time period and what life was like on a plantation. Laura- We enjoyed the history and family story far better than Oak Alley. Our Tour Guide was Al (I believe?) and he was LEGIT! Sounded and looked Creole as they come. He took us into the family history of the plantation which was far more interesting than I could imagine. He was informative and knowledgeable as well as invested in what he was explaining to us. Able to picture what life was like for both Owner and Slave. Beautiful house and the gift shop was filled with goodies and trinkets to buy all reasonably priced. Oak Alley- Tour was more self-directed. Tour of the Main House was neat to see. The view from the balcony overlooking the alley of oak trees is memorizing. They serve mint julips by the main house if you like Gin... Had a big gift shoppe- was not able to go in; not enough time from walking and looking at the other exhibits.

The bus driver was a sweetheart named emeeka and she kept us very entertained the whole ride over. At the plantations your drover leaves you and the plantation is responsible for the tour. Both tours were very interesting and done by great guides. A must see if your in New Orleans
