What people are saying about Whitney Plantation
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.
Both tour guides at each plantation were outstanding. They had an inexhaustible amoun of knowledge regarding the subject matter.
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 !
The tour of Whitney plantation was excellent . Thought the tour of the oaks plantation was very “commercial”
