Isabelle was great with communicating the particulars of the tour and what we would need for the day of the tour well in advance. On the day of the tour John was awesome! John picked me up from my hotel on time. From the moment our small group departed, he educated our small group about New Orleans along the way. John’s knowledge of the historical events of the area was phenomenal. The tours of Whitney and St Joseph were very informative. Whitney plantation tells the story from the view of the slave, whereas St. Joseph from the view of the owners. Whitney Plantation has an awesome audio tour. The guide at St. Joseph was friendly and very knowledgeable. I love that our group was small. Though I knew none of the other tour participants, we all bonded in the moment of the day thanks to John! The 5 hour day was well worth it and highly recommended!!

This entire experience was seamless. Upon booking directly you receive a text with all required information; the tour guide picks you up and drops you off directly from your hotel; you get a personal tour of the rich history of the area on the entire drive; and assistance while at the plantation as needed. It was so nice being apart of a smaller tour group. Our tour guide, Stephen, was incredibly knowledgeable, was patient and considerate, and took the time to answer all questions throughout the entire tour. I will definitely go on an Isabelle tour again when I’m back (and request for Stephen!)!

I bought a group of 10 college students from Chicago to New Orleans for a service learning trip. This tour was the perfect start to the 2-week experience. The most memorable part of this tour was the approach Whitney has in providing an accurate and realistic view of what life was really like for the slaves, and leading one to support family and friends whose ancestors had to live under these conditions. Our tour guide Rene was also the best! Not only did he engage us in historical and moving conversations about plantation life, but he also provided recommendations for restaurants and other activities. I will be bringing future groups back! Isabella is also a joy to work with. Everything was perfect and she even got a booster seat for my young son to sit safely in the tour van.

We were absolutely delighted with our tour guide, Rene. He was so friendly and made sure we had an amazing time. He gave us a lot of interesting historical information on the ride out, a little background on himself & a lot of fun facts about New Orleans. After we finished the tours, he was there to take pics and answer any questions. On the way back, he gave us so many food, drink & activity recommendations. We knew that we were going to be with him the next day for another tour & we were really looking forward to it. We ended up going to dinner at one of his recommendations & we loved it. Thank you Rene!

I booked Ms Isabelle through Viator. We ended up having to cancel our trip to St Joseph’s because they were filming but Ms Isabelle made sure to find another plantation to accompany Whitney. I wasn’t sure what to expect but my
Expectations were exceeded. The entire time leading up to the trip, we were in constant communication. Ms Isabelle made everything so seamless. A complete professional. Our drive she narrated pointing on key sites within New Orleans. The van was clean and she even greeted us in our hotel lobby. They group was small and Covid guidelines adhered to. I highly recommend Ms Isabelle and her services. I had two teenagers and we were all taken care of. First class service

Rene is the best tour guide I have ever experienced in my many years of travel. His passion and knowledge of New Orleans made the tour so much fun and informative. The van was comfortable and made our tour so convenient with hotel pick up. The amount of time allotted for each plantation was perfect. We got to do everything that we wanted to do without having to wait. I would definitely recommend tours by Isabelle. And you MUST request Rene!

Isabel and Rene were absolutely wonderful. After booking the trip, I received a text from Isabelle giving me further instructions for the tour. Rene picked us up from our selected hotel on time. The van was clean and well air conditioned. On the way to the first plantation Rene gave us great information about New Orleans, Katrina, sugar cane, slaves and more. He is also very sweet and funny! Whitney plantation was amazing. It was a self guided tour. We were provided an umbrella to block the sun and audio phones to listen to a pre-recorded tour. This tour was outside. The second plantation tour was just as interesting. It was inside the main building. This part of the tour was air conditioned. On our way back home, Rene gave us all great recommendations for bars and hotels. I am really glad I took this tour. So worth it!
