What people are saying about Vacherie
With a better understanding of slavery we have a chance to overcome racial inequality some day...
Not only was the Double plantation tour a fascinating look Into a tragic past ! Gerald our bus driver entertained us both up and back with fascinating bits of information about New Orleans !
Advertising as a half day tour is a bit deceiving. I would say the tour was less then 2 hours. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and held our attention.
The tour itself is very short , most of the time is spent on travel . It took one hour to get there and over 90 minutes to get back.
The guide was great, and very knowledgeable. However we didn't get any time to walk around for ourselves which is something I would have appreciated. I like alone time. The tour was supposed to be 5 hours, but since it was combined with others visiting Oak Alley Plantation we got lesser time at Whitney (only 2 hrs, and the tour was basically a full 2 hrs), thus our time was shorter due to the Oak Alley pick up. That was not great.
