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.

    Two different but equally compelling stories

    I visited these plantations over the weekend after it had snowed, which is something really rare in the area! My family and I started at Laura Plantation and went to the self guided museum while we waited for the next tour. There was so much information and so many neat artifacts to look at and read about and it got our anticipation up for the tour to come. We had a wonderful time with our tour guide Cameron. He was so knowledgeable and really seemed to enjoy what he did. The plantation is so pretty and the story so detailed, you really could feel like you were right there with them as they did their business and while they dealt with family drama. ... read more

    Laura and Oak Valley

    I gave this a 4 because Laura was absolutely fabulous. My guide was informative and answer questions knowlegably Oak Valley while a very beautiful plantation was a rather boring tour the guide sounded like she had memorized what to say word for word.So Laura I award 5+ and Oak Valley 3 at best because of the guide. I probably would have bypassed this plantation if I had known.

    To Louisiana From Oregon

    The Laura Plantation and Oak Alley Plantation we so informative and beautiful. There we 5 of us visiting Louisiana from Oregon. The beauty of Oak Alley is exquisite. Our tour guides were very knowledgeable on all facts of these plantations. The tour guides at Oak Alley are dressed in time period apparel making the experience even better and with the heat and humidity, makes you wonder how people coped in this time period. Both plantations are air conditioned. We would visit again for sure.

    Laura Tour

    Our guide, Stephen, was excellent. I learned much more than I expected. I appreciated his thorough overview of the grounds, the owners, the slaves, the business, and the politics of the area during that time. It was extremely informative and am looking forward to visiting again.

    Great, as expected!

    We had a pretty good idea of what to expect based on writeups we had seen. And friends had told us that these two plantations were historically authentic, not tourist traps. Both houses (Laura and Oak Alley) were beautifully restored, and both plantations made a real effort to explain what life was really like back then, including the back-breaking work by the slaves to plant and harvest the sugar cane. We enjoyed the history lesson, the impressive buildings, and extensive grounds. Very well done tour, at both places. Highly recommended!

    Great time easy reservation...

    Wasn't sure about the trip shock thing when we went to make the reservation but it worked out great. The plantation tours were both a lot of fun. Very informative with good tour guides. We drove ourselves out do could take as much time as we wanted at the sites. Would record these two plantations to anyone. Lots of walking though.

    Laura and Oak Alley Plantation

    If you have a car, you can purchase a combo ticket to these plantations on trip and drive to the plantations which are located a few miles from each other. I showed the ticket attendant my cell phone email with the voucher number from and it was easy. Get to the first plantation early to avoid large tours. I went to Oak Alley first, got a personal tour of the Big House shortly after they opened. Don't miss the slave quarters and walk around the beautifully kept grounds. Second tour was Laura: a Creole Plantation. This was a completely different type of sugar cane plantation tour and the guide had fun stories to tell that were very interesting. Overall, a fun experience!

    Trip shock was fantastic

    We booked several tours and activities through trip shock for our recent vacation to New Orleans. Not only did we get good deals, but their customer support was fantastic. Several times we had to change or cancel plans and a simple phone call was all it took to reschedule or get a refund. I would definitely recommend trip shock

    Great combo option

    Really enjoyed the way these two plantations were put together in a combo tour. Both beautiful in their own way, but both very different. Glad we got to see the two of them. Make sure you have your confirmation number with you; we needed it at Oak Alley.
