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

Loved it, the only negative was the air boats buzzing around us. They were so loud I believe they scared off most of the wildlife. It would be better if they went out at separate times.

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

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

Central Business District
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
