Depends on what you’re looking for… history or beauty?

Laura’s tour was so historical and interesting. Oak Alley was GORGEOUS, but less history was shared.

Both plantations are worth the visit. Guides on site are knowledgeable in the history of the specific plantation. Wish we have more time to explore

Definitely Laura Plantation was the highlight. Logan the tour guide brought the plantation to historical life. Oak Alley was just ok compared to Laura

I enjoyed the day and seeing some of our history

Cajun Encounters transportation was on time and punctual and getting the tours of the two plantations was seamless. Sunshine had excellent energy and gave good recommendations for how to tour the grounds and avoid crowds. Plantations themselves tend to vary in terms of how they present their information, especially in how they bring up the slave side of the story and honor and respect their contributions and struggles. The Laura Plantation did a good job at this, but the Oak Alley Plantation did not. The tour guide at Laura was also outstanding and natural, but the tour guides at Oak Alley were very robotic, scripted, and unnatural. Both plantations were very beautiful and it was a good way to see parts of our dark history as a country that are important to remember and never forget.

The narrator, Michael at the Laura Plantation was superb, very informative of all the past history, people and events that led to many decisions that affected many lives. He explained the culture and made the place alive. Oak Alley was the most impressive regarding the views of the plantations and oaks. The history was interesting, but not as impressive as the narrator at the Laura Plantation.

Good tours, pickup/dropoff very disorganized

Nice tours. Would recommend. Bus pickup was very late & microphone didn’t work so we missed all commentary. Dropoff was in different order than pickup so it was hard figure out. I was told to go all the way across town from where I was staying for my pickup when there was one 4 blocks from me. I pd $25.00 just to get to pickup stop!! I got off at the closer one.

Great tours! You could easily spend hours at the Oakley Plantation but the tour guide at the Laura plantation was excellent and knowledgeable. The Oakly tour is the big house only and rest is self guided, the Laura is a fully guided tour. You can’t go wrong with either one!
