A wonderful tour. A very detailed discription of the plantation from its founding to present day. Our tour guide, Logan, did a wonderful job. Very knowledgeable. I would suggest this plantation tour to anyone interested in the total picture of plantation life.

It was an enlightening experience, looking back on a by gone era. Very sad how humans can be so cruel. Michael, our tour guide was very informative and knew much about the plantation.

I have been to the Laura Plantation twice and have loved it both times. I had an amazing tour guide both times who were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history. My only regret is I didn’t write their names down because they were truly amazing. Especially the one we had yesterday. If this site can add his name, I would be ok with that!!

Really interesting Tour. Our guide Logan was very informative and introduced an element of fun into the walk. Even the coach trip to get to and from the plantation was enjoyable with our driver Brian giving good background information on Katrina and its aftermath.

The actual plantation tour was great. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about the history of the plantation and really made it cover alive. However, our bus driver could have been more professional. She was late picking us up we spent the first few minutes arguing over the phone about where we were suppose to meet turns out we were right. After she pick up the other passengers, she tried to give us information about the city, but her information was either incomplete or incorrect I think she was nervous. Also, she spent most of the time yelling at her house contractor on the phone rather than telling us information.

Very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide - an excellent way to gain an insight into the lives and conditions of the plantation owners, their families and slaves. Transport from hotel to main bus was quite good. Bus from New Orleans to the plantation was not as comfortable as expected for the time spent on board.

Beaucoup d'information et histoires de la vie dans ses plantations. Je me serais attendu à un endroit un peu plus théâtrale. Seulement qq objets et bâtiments pour nous décrire la vie de cette plantation.
