Hop in the car and head to New Orleans Plantation Country, and visit two historical plantations at a leisurely pace....
Oak Alley and Laura are two plantations that are a must see in Louisiana! Oak Alley is incredibly beautiful and Laura has some fascinating stories. Both portray an honest depiction of the lives of the owners and slaves before and after the civil war.
It was very educatimg
Very easy to make reservations. I did mine by phone. Laura Plantation was the best tour. Logan our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very friendly. Oak Alley we did not experience this.

Embark on an epic 2 plantation combo with an optional lunch at both Houmas House and Laura Plantation. First, at Houmas...
Logan was an excellent guide... extremely knowledgeable, with an engaging presentation. Thouroughly enjoyed this tour!
Suzanna was such a delightful tour guide at Houmas House. Not only was she informative, but sweet, polite, and patient towards all of her guests. The garden was so beautiful and serene. So many photo opportunities. We were hoping for one of the many dragon flies to rest on our shoulders for good luck, but that didn’t happen. Instead, we settled for some dragon fly souvenirs from their cute gift shop. Their gift shop has a great selection of books and children's gifts, as well. We purchased a Louisiana cookbook, which was recommended by one of the sales associates, for my mother-in-law. My husband and I had been to the Laura Plantation before, during our last visit to NOLA, but this was a special birthday trip for my mother-in-law and we wanted her to experience Laura Plantation because it reminded my husband of where they were raised on Guam. Joseph, our tour guide, was very, very knowledgeable and was great at putting everything into perspective in today’s world. In fact, my husband and I enjoyed this visit better than our first. We learned so much more this time around.
Tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable and kept tour fresh and engaging. Knew her stuff!!

This combo plantation tour of both San Francisco Plantation and Oak Alley Plantation will teach you the differences...
San Francisco was a very colorful home, it is very beautiful. It is one of the least popular of the plantations but I believe it's worth the visit! I especially loved the different rooms with the hand painted ceilings (some even with REAL gold). The tour guide was very friendly and informative and knew a lot about the history of the home. There's a slave cabin and also what used to be a school house on the grounds, which was very fascinating to see. Overall, would definitely recommend if you have the time! Oak Alley Plantation is beautiful. The grounds are self-guided and house is guided. My favorite part is the gigantic oak trees that line up in the front of the plantation that are hundreds of years old. They have some slave houses (not original but supposed to be exact replicas) that give you an insight on what it was like back then to live as a slave. The house is gorgeous, and the guides walk you through the house telling you about the history and families that used to live there. They also have a great gift shop with tons of unique finds. They also have a deli/restaurant and a bar!
OAK ALLEY PLANTATION -- The parking lot is expansive and the area to check in is very clear as it’s a ticket booth upon entry. The grounds were BEAUTIFUL. The trees and small gardens were gorgeous. They also have a great gift shop with amazing pralines they hand make daily. They have a small restaurant and also a little cafe kind of to eat as well as a bar. They also have BNB’s there which I thought was rather unique. The grounds are large though and it is a lot of walking but at your own pace which I did prefer. The house tour was beautiful. I don’t feel like our tour guide really put much of a personal touch or flair on her tour… She did provide a lot of information about the house and the history. The house is definitely the fanciest set up for the day. They also had a small area for drinks just outside of the door which was nice because it started pouring down raining just before we exited. SAN FRANCISCO -- Had a lovely tour here despite the rain! Phyllis was our tour guide and she was wonderful! She knew a lot of the history of the place and was actually passionate about it which draws you into the actual story and time. This tour is very much focused on the house and the history surrounding it and the plantation.
Both tours were very informational and interesting. I had toured Oak Alley in 2010 and got a completely different tour this time! Learned a lot of new things I hadn’t learned the first time.The tour guides were knowledgeable and answered any questions anyone on our tour had. Beautiful plantations, would definitely tour again.

Both of the plantations we toured were absolutely amazing. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and happy to answer our questions. Each property was staffed with the kindest and most helpful people.
We visited San Francisco & Houmas House plantations. They were both different, but I think being able to see both gave a better perspective. San Francisco plantation actually gave us more thorough history.
This trip was 5 star. It was great being with friends and family sharing wonderful memories. The meal at Houmas House was fabulous.
