Great tours, pretty plantations. However the trip takes all day (which I don’t mind). They wouldn’t give us extra time for lunch so we were very hungry. I didn’t eat breakfast prior to the trip so I went 7 hours in the heat without eating. It would be nice if the tour would stop

Responded 2 weeks ago
Thank you for the review. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your plantation tour. I am sorry to hear that you did not have enough time to eat at Oak Alley's restaurant, however the tour description on our website does state that the combo plantation tour does not provide the amount of time needed to sit and eat at the restaurant because of the tour durations at each plantation. The Oak Alley plantation tour by itself is the tour that provides the time for lunch at Oak Alley's restaurant. However, there is a gift shop and deli on site at Oak Alley for quick food or snack purchases. We apologize for any misunderstanding and hope you have a happy New Year!

The ride to the plantations was fun, our driver/guide, Kimberly, was very nice. The tour at Laura Plantation was fantastic; our guide , Pam, was super knowledgeable and funny (well, appropriate for the serious topic of slavery). The guided tour of Oak Alley is much shorter then

Oak Alley is beautiful and well preserved! Well worth a visit. Negative in our view: Too much focus on the rich owners, and too little focus on the slavery. The cafe could need a makeover.
