Took the tour to Laura Plantation. Picked us at our hotel on time. Nicely narrated drive out to the plantation, with background on the others nearby. A nice stress free way to get out of New Orleans and out to the plantations. They service all of them.

I took my 12-year old son the Whitney Plantation. It was a profound and moving experience. We were concerned when we heard that the tour was entirely via audio guide, but the audio content was excellent--very thoroughly researched and very compellingly expressed. I learned a lot and was interested throughout the 14-stop itinerary on the plantation site, even under heavy showers.In the welcome center/gift shop there is a second exhibition on the history of slavery, and it, too, is excellent. I commend the Whitney Plantation curators on their work.N'Awlins got us there and back quickly and comfortably. Dionne was our driver and she was a warm and charming presence. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting the region.

I had a nice time on this tour. Pick up from the hotel was easy and in time. I felt safe with the driver and she pointed out different places as we drove. Oak Alley was a beautiful place and I enjoyed my tour

Our driver was excellent. I do not recall her name. She explained different areas while we travelled. She was very knowledgeable. The driver was an African-American woman. Very accommodating. Picked us up and dropped us off. It was a great experience.

The Plantation self walking tour was excellent. Dionne our transportation driver was excellent also. There should have been communication that the transportation was dropping off other tours such as swamp tour. This extended our time. It would have been nice to know this before booking.

Visited the Whitney plantation. Our driver Dionne was great. On the drive out she entertained us and educated us the important surroundings we passed by. She was knowledgeable and funny - making jokes about my husband being a seahawks fan!When we got there, she quickly got us checked in, then we were on our own.The only improvement I would say is that I had to call the night before to try to figure out where they would pick us up as we were staying in an air bnb. It was not clear. But when you call, they were very quick to set it all up!Good service!

We went to the Whitney Plantation which was beyond amazing! Dionne was our driver and she was the best!! She was extremely knowledgeable and friendly!! She also pointed out must see places along the way. When we return to NOLA I will definitely book another tour with N’awlins Luxury and we hope to get Dionne again!!!

What an amazing experience! Thank you N’awlins Luxury Transportation! We had the most amazing driver. (Dionne) We were actually transported two days in a row by her. One to Oak Alley and the next day to Whitney Plantation. She picked up up at the front door of Ritz Carlton and dropped us off at the exact location exactly how it was promised. Thank you Dionne for making that hour drive go by so quickly with your very interesting knowledge and information throughout the city! Can’t wait to visit again!
