Full description
Pick-up time is 10:30AM, you should arrive about 12:15PM at Oak Alley Plantation where you will have an hour of free time to get lunch and walk the grounds. The Oak Alley house tour starts at 1:30PM until 2:15PM. Then you take a short 10-minute drive to Laura Plantation, the tour begins at 2:40PM. You will return to New Orleans around 6:00PM.

Oak Alley Plantation was built in 1837 and has 28 evenly spaced Oaks that line a quarter of a mile path from River Road to the plantation house. There are additional attractions on the grounds including a restaurant, cafe and gift shop. The choice is yours how you would like to use your free hour.

Laura Plantation was built and operated by four Creole women. The main house burned down in 2003, an exact replica was built using wood and materials from other antique buildings. The rebuilding of the plantation house is a story in itself. Slave quarters are a part of this unique tour.

This tour was well worth the trip. Oak Alley is a beautiful home and the huge oak trees are spectacular. With touring the home, viewing the grounds and peripheral buildings, time for lunch was limited so plan accordingly. While Laura is the smaller of the two homes, it was perhaps the most interesting and enjoyable. Both tour guides were knowledgeable and interesting. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting the area.

Return to Plantations was better than in years past.

Several years ago, we did the Oak Alley/Laura plantations tour. I remember it being pleasurable, but rushed. This particular outing seemed to provide ample time to both see the plantations, and wander around a bit. This was particularly important at Oak Alley, because time is needed to grab a bite for lunch. If anything, the Laura plantation tour was a little long. We could have used an extra 20 minutes to SHOP (and I'm sure the facility would have been appreciative of that as well).. But, as it worked out, the rest of our tour group was ready to go 10 minutes before the scheduled departure time (I think everyone was just tired... it's a long outing on a hot/humid day)... Trip was fun and informative... and locations were very picturesque.

Beautiful, great information, great tour. . . a must see!

My driver, Donna, was awesome! She picked me up at my hotel; she gave us guided information along bus ride; she helped us stay on time and gave us tips on how to maximize our time. Both plantations were breathtaking. Both plantations had knowledge staff and very informative guided tours. Kyle, our guide at the Laura plantation, made the stories come alive so much that I bought the book in the gift shop! Great trip! I will do this same tour again on my next trip to New Orleans! Great service, great price, great tour!
