Got to the ticket booth in French Quarter to exchange voucher for the boarding ticket and realized I had made a mistake on the date and had missed my actual tour and they let me go anyway without any problem. I was very delighted. Everything was on time and just as expected.

Very memorable experience. The self-guided tour at the plantation let's go soak in all the sights and informative areas of the property. we thought the 2 hr time limit was plenty and didn't seem rushed. Please note that we also spent the entire time walking the grounds and none at the food area. Bus transportation was comfortable.

The driver Alton was great, he made the drive enjoyable and informational. I would have liked more time than the 2 hrs allotted. Further for the price asked comparable to experience I think it was a bit too high. If something else was added like a discount ice cream or meal that would've helped.
