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 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.
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)
