Use Code PLANT13 for 10% OFF!

History, architecture, beauty and adventure can be found at each of the plantations that we visit along the legendary River Road. Select your choice of either Laura or Oak Alley Plantation for tours packed with beauty and adventure.

Oak Alley Plantation was built in 1837-39. It is famous for its’ alley of 28 evenly spaced Live Oak trees, believed to be at least 100 years older than the big house. Perhaps the most photographed plantation ever, Oak Alley has been the setting for such motion pictures as "Interview with a Vampire", "Primary Colors" and the wedding of Bo and Hope from the daytime soap opera, "Days of our Lives".

Laura: A Creole Plantation was built in 1805. Let the “memoirs of Laura” transport you into the lives of 4 generations of this plantation’s Creole men, women, slaves and children. The fully guided experience includes the Big House, gardens and the original 1840s slave cabins in which the West-African folktales of Compair Lapin (later known as Br'er Rabbit) were recorded over 140 years ago.

Activity Highlights

We had Elizabeth as a tour guide. She is very knowledgeable. We wished the tour spoke more about the slaves than the bloodline. We had a great time.

There was no mention that you go to their Swamp Adventure site to wait for other tour guests. By the time we get to the Plantation, you only have about 1 1/2 hours to do Big House tour and see the property. Not enough time to see everthing. A waste of time. Would not recommend.

We had an excellent tour guide in Kristyn that explained the house, the architecture, the people and the history. It made us cry, feel uncomfortable and give us perspective. We relished the trip and would recommend it.
