What we witnessed at the Whitney was sobering, but it was also something we needed to see. They don’t glorify the old South at the Whitney. They show you the hard reality of life for the slaves who were forced to live there. An essential...More
This was a good tour. I appreciated the insight on what plantation life was like from the perspective of the plantation owner and the slaves who worked the plantation. The house tour was a little lacking but the Gray Line driver Kindrell (Ken) Falk did...More
First and foremost: our driver Kendall was the best. He was informative and explained details very clearly. I really enjoyed spending the day with him. He was a lot of fun.
Secondly, the narrative at Whitney was expertly told by Cheryl. It was clear to...More
Ken, our bus tour guide was funny and entertaining. He had a lot of great recommendations for dinner, gave a lot of interesting information on the area and sugar cane/plantation. The plantation tours were good. Laura plantation’s guide, Kyle, was excellent. We definitely enjoyed that...More
While looking forward to this tour, I focused solely on how happy I was to finally be going to a Tara or Twelve Oaks type plantation, decades after I first fell in love with GWTW. The first part of the trip did not disappoint. Our...More
The tour visited the plantation first. On the way there our excellent guide, Mary E gave us lots of information. At the plantation she handed us over to one of their staff who showed us around and told us the history of the plantation and...More
It's a good cruise. The engine room is open for visitors and as you cruise there is an audio comentary pointing out certain sights and giving lots of information. The lunch was a buffet that was very good. Coffee/tea/water are free and other drinks are...More
Well organised trip, great boat, interesting commentary and bar staff very pleasant. Not the best river trip I've ever been on but to see and be on the mighty Mississippi was what it was all about, great jazz too!
I was not sure what to expect with this plantation and I was a bit nervous about what our guide would share. I know there are people out there that want to forget about the horrible history of slavery and I was hoping that this...More
Compared to the more evocative monikers of some other parts of New Orleans, the downtown’s humdrum title might suggest that this area is all about business and little else. But don’t let the bland name keep you away from the Central Business District. The CBD offers a wide range of fun things to do that would be touted as exceptional in less jubilant corners of the world. Bordered by the French Quarter, the Arts
District and Tremé, with the river at its eastern extreme, this hub for sports, gaming, shopping, theatre, family-friendly activities, and amazing regional cuisine makes a smart base wherever your interests lie.
I agree with Ally1963 & Robert S. I believe the tours you are asking about are different. I did the plantation tour followed by the Cajun Pride Swamp tour. Transportation was on the Greyline bus, except, of course, the... More
I agree with Ally1963 & Robert S. I believe the tours you are asking about are different. I did the plantation tour followed by the Cajun Pride Swamp tour. Transportation was on the Greyline bus, except, of course, the swamp tour itself. I highly recommend this package and agree with Robert S that the plantation tour was a bit rushed, yet very interesting.

As this question surfaces each year, i want to respond on behalf of the company so people can see the information. A number of years ago (about 20), the conditions on the River - Fog, Smoke and many small vessels, made the safety of trips to the Bonfires an unwise choice. It was a long trip as riverboats only travel at approximately 7 miles an hour. For all these reasons the riverboat excursions on New Years Eve were discontinued.
