Here’s what some of our Steel Magnolia tour attendees said about our last trip to Natchitoches, Louisiana:

“My friends and I traveled from Oklahoma for the Preserve Louisiana 'Steel Magnolias' tour. The PL staff was extremely hospitable, warm and welcoming. We laughed and cried throughout the weekend, and our hearts were changed forever by the visit to the plantations. Preserve Louisiana put on a first-class trip and we will definitely be back for more!" – Stephanie O’Hara

“It was a very nice trip and I got my money's worth!  The tour took a lot of planning and was well executed. All of the people who greeted us at our destination were very warm, friendly and treated us as though we were diplomats visiting from another country. They are very proud of their historic city and it showed!  My favorite experience was visiting Melrose and meeting the Creole locals.  I especially enjoyed the lunch in the barn prepared by the Creole couple and found it to be the best food I had on the trip. Great job Peggy and Fairleigh!” – Claudia Golden
