Combo Plantation Tour From New Orleans - Whitney, Laura or Oak Alley Plantation

Whitney Plantation
Oak Alley

Get a taste of the past when you choose to visit any 2 of 3 plantations on this insightful combo tour on the Old River Road.
Your choice of The Laura Plantation steps beyond the myths of the American South and walks in the footsteps of the generations of a real Louisiana Creole family, both free and enslaved. Enchant yourself in a story told by knowledgeable, passionate guides about REAL people, free and enslaved, and how they REALLY lived on this 1800’s sugar plantation. The ever-evolving story transports you beyond the myths of the American South into the lost world of Louisiana Créoles.
The Whitney Plantation opened its doors to the public as the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery. Through museum exhibits, memorial artwork, restored buildings and hundreds of first-person slave narratives, visitors to Whitney will gain a unique perspective on the enslaved people who lived and worked here. The Big House is one of the finest surviving examples of Spanish Creole architecture and one of the earliest raised Creole cottages in Louisiana.

Feast your eyes on the many Majestic Cypress Trees in Louisiana’s swampland bordering the Mississippi River. Your guided tour will reveal the fascinating stories of the home and its history.

    A very pleasant day!

    Donald was an excellent driver the entire trip so I was completely relaxed. Ken was very informative as well as entertaining in his knowledge of our two plantations. Thank you so much.

    Oak Alley

    The tourof the main house is to rushed. They bring in the next group so quick that you do not have time for pictures. They were rather harsh in moving the group along. They seemed more interested in quantity of groups over the quality of the tours.

    Oak Alley manages the tours of the house. In certain seasons it is undoubtably busy and we apologize if they seemed unhospitable on the tours. We will certainly talk with them.

    Great locations, bad bus trip

    I rate the actual plantations at 5, but I rate the transportation company low. Reason being the bathroom was out of service according to the bus driver. I found it difficult to believe given the overall condition of the bus, which was very well kept. It seemed to me the bus driver only said that so he ( or someone else) wouldn’t have to clean the bathroom later. There were at least 25 people on the bus with me, most of which were in their fifties. We all had to ‘hold it’ both on the way to and from the plantation sites. This is simply inaceptable and the transportation company should provide basic needs like a working bathroom

    We really enjoyed our tour of Laura and Oak Alley. Our bus driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. He shared a lot of interesting facts. The tour guides shared a lot of interesting information about the plantations and shared all sides of life on the plantation. Both locations were beautiful even in January. Laura was our favorite. We felt we got more information and didn't feel as rushed as we did at Oak Alley. Although, we did sit down to eat at Oak Alley which took up some time. A little more time at the second location to account for food would have been preferred, but still, everything was worth the cost.
