Our advice Upss be to choose the plantation s you really want to go to and try to make their first tour of the day or alternatively Casual Hook Ups Parks Louisiana last tour of the day as these tend to be less crowded and the bus tours are not normally there yet. If you find that you are joining a very crowded tour, Casuual to wait and go on the next one. Being flexible with your time can be key as when we were at Destrehan, a giant group of schoolchildren had just arrived and were put on the tour in front of us, but we were given a tour just to ourselves as we were the only ones left for the last tour of Psrks day.
