Our family had the privilege of visiting the Laura and Oak Alley plantations with Old River recently. We were very impressed with our guide (Elmer?), who was a fountain of knowledge. He kept us regaled throughout the trip with very interesting and relevant anecdotes and pieces of information. We have no qualms recommending their outstanding service offering to others. They helped to make the day trip out of New Orleans a truly memorable one. Thanks again!
We chose the Oak Alley and Laura Plantation tour. Our guide, Elmore, picked us up promptly at the scheduled time and spent the trip to and from the plantations giving us lots of information and history about the New Orleans area. The two plantation tours were very different and complimented each other well. The tour at Laura plantation was based on the memoir of one of the former residents. There was a lot of focus on slavery in Louisiana during this tour. The Oak Alley property was very impressive and our tour guide gave us lots of information about the property, but it didn't seem as personal as the Laura tour. I highly recommend this tour group for plantation tours.
Our guide Elmer was full of information! Throughout our trip he provided an endless stream of interesting facts and information about New Orleans, the plantations and Louisiana. He was never boring - always kept our interest and our attention.
The plantations themselves were certainly worth the visit. The Laura Plantation was very interesting but we particularly enjoyed the Oak Alley plantation. The house and avenue of oaks were fantastic.
A great day out!
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.
