What people are saying about Vacherie
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.
The Oak Alley Plantation Home was amazing, well worth the trip. The tour company that took me was not run so well. Picked up from hotel and dropped off at meeting point for bus, but I was left there with other passengers for half an hour as they forgot about us. Once that was sorted the rest of the tour went smoothly.!
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 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.
