Laura or Oak Alley Plantation Tour From New Orleans

Includes FREE Transportation from select NOLA hotels!

Select your choice of either Laura or Oak Alley Plantation for a tour packed with history, beauty and architecture. Laura Plantation: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site is dedicated to the rich Creole history of antebellum Louisiana. This colorful plantation home provides with you with a deeply researched tour about the Creole family and the enslaved people and features a Slavery Museum on site. 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.

Oak Alley Plantation is the most well-known and photographed of all Louisiana Plantations, featuring 28 live oak trees that are believed to be more than 300 years old, in addition to a slavery exhibit & blacksmith shop. 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".

Rose, our plantation guide was great. So full of history and fun facts. She was as good as our driver back was bad. Our bus driver was horrible, loud, yelled at passengers to get off the bus. She had on headphones while driving.

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.
