What people are saying about Whitney Plantation
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.
Bus tour guide was informative, but the guide at Whitney Plantation (Ali) was phenomenal!!!! He discussed difficult subjects of slavery, shifts of power and greed....this tour was told from the view of the enslaved with very little specific time spent on discussing land owners.....ABSOLUTELY recommend. This is the history we NEVER learned in school.
Even though you have a mobile app ticket or voucher, you still have to go in line at ticket booth show them your mobile app ticket and they print you a ticket to give to the bus attendant. I didn’t realize this until 5 minutes before take off, but we made it. (And we were there an hour early)
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 !
Both tour guides at each plantation were outstanding. They had an inexhaustible amoun of knowledge regarding the subject matter.
