The individual tours were great, but the pick-up and transportation was a little unorganized, which is why I gave 4 stars. The Oak Alley tour was informative and transported us back in time. The live oaks were a sight to behold! The airboat swamp tour was surprisingly fun! We

We apologize about the transportation part. We are trying our best around the construction and closure of streets. However, we appreciate the positive review! Thank you!

The tour starts out a little slow as we opted in for a hotel pick-up. While the pick-up was on time we did have to transfer to a second larger bus and this had us waiting along Canal Street for a bit. Once we were on the road it was a great trip. The plantation was lovely, but

There was a lot of travel time from the city to the plantation, and then from the plantation to the fan boats, so I recommend taking snacks (including water), lathering up with sunscreen, and using the bathroom before you get on the bus (if you arranged for hotel pick-up). The

We do appologize for the long ride from the French Quarter to Oak Alley or Laura plantation. The road that we have to travel is not within our control and I do agree that the State of Louisiana has not kept up with road maintenance. The better option would have been Destrehan Plantation, which is only 30 minutes from the French Quarter. We provide options, but do not make those choices.
