Take the top two most popular and most visited historic attractions in Louisiana and locate them in the heart of New Orleans Plantation Country. These wonderful plantations are less than an hour away from the French Quarter. Take the day and be transported back, listening to stories of Louisiana's past.

Start by heading over to Laura: A Creole Plantation (1805), step beyond the myths of the American South and walk in the footsteps of 4 generations of one Louisiana Creole family, both free and enslaved. Immerse yourself in a story told by knowledgeable, passionate guides about REAL people, free and enslaved, and how they REALLY lived on this circa 1805 sugar plantation. Tours recount first-hand, personal stories discovered in the U.S. and France of four generations of free and enslaved Louisiana Créole women. Fully guided experience includes the Big House, gardens and original 1840s slave cabins, inhabited by descendants of enslaved West-Africans until 1977. Museum exhibit "From the Big House to the Quarters: Slavery on Laura Plantation" presents detailed biographies of enslaved women and children, as well as the enslaved men who escaped the farm to fight in the Union Army. The ever-evolving story transports you beyond the myths of the American South into the lost world of Louisiana Créoles. Visit this historic sugar farmstead and experience what has been called “the best history tour in the U.S.”. Next, travel up the old River Road to Oak Alley. Next, travel up River Road…… A powerful testimony to the rich history of the antebellum south, Oak Alley invites visitors to explore all facets of her plantation past wilh a full plantation experience.

    Non-refundable Tickets

    I had purchased 7 combo plantation tickets for my family vacation. At the last minute something came up at work and I couldn't go. I knew when I bought tickets they were nonrefundable. I called Trip - Shock to ask if the other 6 family members or anyone else could use the tickets I already paid for. I was told "No, upon check in the ID had to match the lead person name on the travel voucher. Voucher is not transferrable." It's BS that my entire family had to cancel their vacation and couldn't use the tickets I bought for them. I will NEVER use trip shock again nor will I recommend them to anyone ever!!!!!!! Almost $300 for nothing! Thanks a lot Trip Shock for screwing us over!

    Better price

    We had a brochure that charged $92 per person for both tours. Admission to each of the tours were $25 per person We were able to book on tripshock.com and got the best price admission for 2, $88 for both tours (driving ourselves). So worth it!! Fantastic tours rich with history!!

    Great tours!

    We really enjoyed our tours of the Laura plantation and Oak Alley. Our guides were very informative. Our guide, Renée at the Laura plantation was wonderful. She was so personable and just made the tour very interesting. She just gave us a little lagniappe with her pleasant demeanor and providing interesting Creole facts. We loved it!

    Laura house and oak alley tour

    Great time and great tours. Very knowledgeable tour guides. Laura house is quite different than it was 18 years ago when we first toured it. Gotten a bit more commercial. Not quite as original as it was back then.

    Oak alley and Laura plantations

    These two plantations are very different and give a great view of what life was like along the Mississippi River during the Civil war era. Both are a must visit.

    Not to be missed especially if you love your history

    We decided to take in both Oak Alley and Laura Plantations, and I selected them to see the contrast between a Creole plantation vs a plantation where the owner comes from European stock, money, and breeding. Huge discrepancy and difference when you see and learn about the mansions and families that built them. But when you get to the slave cabins you quickly see there is very little difference in their living conditions. However, regardless of the plantation ownership, treatment of the slaves can vary widely depending on the owner's attitude, upbringing, the plantation's success, and numerous other factors. Provides a much clearer understanding of the horrors of slavery during that time in U.S. history up to 1865. ... read more

    2 out of 3 must see plantations

    The plantations are must- see if visiting NOLA and/or River Road. Oak Alley has stunning grounds and the Laura has an extremely informative tour that focuses on the Creole culture and history of the plantation owner. This offers package offers a discount on the entrance tickets were they purchased separately. Only way to improve things is to add on the Whitney, which focuses on the slave experience, in order to get a full picture of the history.

    Two very different plantations, but both equally informative and enjoyable!

    The Laura and Oak Alley plantations were large, well kept and the tour guides were quite informative. Really enjoyed stepping back into time, a difficult time, and understanding the culture, commerce and politics of the day. Had my wife and teenage son and two teenage daughters in attendance and they all enjoyed themselves!
