The Laura plantation...

The Laura plantation guide was excellent añd personable unlike the Oak Alley presenter. The Oak Alley tour was poorly planned and executed. Not enough time at Oak Alley for tour II n your own.

Our tour bus guide, Nate, was very friendly and we enjoyed his stories and jokes. Laura Plantation was our favorite tour. It had a more warm and inviting feel. Oak Alley was more formal. Both places are beautiful and would recommend to see when in the New Orleans area.

I had already visited both of these places back in the 1990’s and it was very nice to go back and rediscover them and learn more facts and refresh my memory of those that I’d forgotten.

great and awful at the same time

I am going to review this in two separate pieces. I'll start with the terrible. First of all, they insist over and over that you arrive before the pickup time, but it turns out the time is just a window and so 14 people were standing at our stop for 35 minutes waiting, since we all got there at least 10 minutes early and pickup was 25 minutes after the time we were told. The driver was a NIGHTMARE. Dwayne told us over and over and over how much he did NOT want to do the plantation tour. He never shut up during the whole ride, but he spent most of the time telling us about his personal life - all his daughters' car accidents, for instance. Who cares?! He did point out where Andrew Jackson was buried - then said "he's some military guy. Google it." I mean, really? He also did NOT enforce the mask policy on the bus, so half the people weren't wearing them, which was very upsetting. The plantations, however, were wonderful. Especially Laura. Our guide, Crystal, was amazing and really made the place come to life. I'd never been to a Creole plantation and we all found it really interesting. Even my 13-year-old niece was really into it. The second plantation, Oak Alley, was also interesting. Our guide there was a little bland, but we happened to run into a guy giving a talk at the (reconstructed) slave houses and he was really fantastic. Overall, I'd say the tour was worth it, but a) try to get a real pickup time from the company and b) make sure you do NOT get Dwayne as your driver.

Laura tour gave more stories to the history of the plantation. Both for the owners and the slaves. Explained about the harsh lives and how the lives intertwined. Oak alley is beautiful, but no talk about lives of the slaves.

Laura Plantation guide was fantastic. Oak Alley was a bit rushed, wish we had more time there. Overall am so glad we chose this tour. The bus driver, and both guides at both plantations were very informative and told us fun stories of the past.

Laura’s tour was so historical and interesting. Oak Alley was GORGEOUS, but less history was shared.

Both plantations are worth the visit. Guides on site are knowledgeable in the history of the specific plantation. Wish we have more time to explore
