Full description
Experience the two things Louisiana is famous for: Plantation homes and swamps. On this combination tour you will see both of these interesting sights. Tour one of the two best-known plantation homes in the area, Oak Alley Plantation or the Laura plantation.

With an impressive lane of live oaks towering over the entrance of Laura plantation, Oak Alley provides us with a unique insight into the days of slavery. Built in 1837-39, the plantation is famous for its alley of 28 evenly spaced live oak trees, believed to be at least 100 years older than the house itself. Guests can also choose to visit the Laura plantation. Built in 1805, the “memoirs of Laura” exhibit will transport guests to a different time, to the lives of the creole men, women, slaves and children who occupied the plantation.

Then, be taken on a narrated tour of the swamps. The Louisiana bayous are full of alligators, turtles and beautiful water birds. Your local captain will tell you tales of Cajun people living in the swamps. The creole history is both entertaining and mysterious.
