We did the Oak Alley / Laura Plantation Tour. It was a great trip
The vehicle we had was comfortable. Our experience with Laura and Oak plantations was really good as well. The driver (an older gentleman) was an expert on the history of New Orleans and surrounding plantations. This was a half day well spent.
We did the full day tour, visiting Laura and Oak Alley and the swamp. We were picked up outside the French Quarter and the driver called both of our cell phones to confirm the time -- I really appreciated that.
The large van picked us up from our hotel on time. The driver gave a good narrated tour on the way to Oak Alley and Laura. Both plantations had excellent tours.
This was a great company to use. It was the only company that visited Evergreen Plantation which I highly recommend. It was the best!! Old River will pick you up form your hotel, they were on time and the driver Richard was so sweet and informative.
We had a charming French tour guide named Philippe. I enjoyed his stories and jokes - it really made the hour rides to and from the plantations fly by. Not to mention the educational factor. Awesome experience!
We're completely sold on Old River Road. They are professional and there's never any question about what's going to happen and when. Richard was our driver/guide and he's filled with knowledge of the area that's delivered in a manner that's easy to understand and adds to the trip. You can't go wrong with Old River Road.
We decided to do a joint plantation and swamp tour through this company after talking to the concierge at our hotel. We were picked up at the time we were told by a minibus. The tour guide was very friendly and informative. We then did a tour of the Laura and Oak Alley plantations, which I would recommend. The tours of both plantations were fantastic. We were then picked up again by the same tour guide and taken to a restaurant for some Cajun cooking and then onto the swamp. The whole experience was fantastic. Each individual tour was very informative, but the icing on the cake was the tour guide on the minibus giving so much information about local sites and history during the drive to and from the destinations.
