Summer's here in New Orleans and Plantation Tours are some of the most popular summer-time tours. For those thinking of visiting and wanting to get a glance, we made a speedy GoPro video to show everyone some of the highlights of both Oak Alley and Laura Plantations. While views of the plantations' interiors are restricted from video and pictures (you'll just have to get out there and see for yourself!) you'll get a good idea of what the tour encompasses...to some good ol' NOLA music.
We even brought Mom along on the tour--she's always wanted to see Oak Alley and Laura. Being a plantation junkie like she is (having seen them all in and around Charleston, SC and Savannah, GA), she just crossed two of the most beautiful, historic and fascinating plantations off her list.
You can tour either Oak Alley or Laura Plantation on their own: hotel pickup is between 8:30-9AM and you're returned to your hotel around 2PM; Or, see and enjoy both plantations on the Combo Tour, which picks up at your hotel between 10:30-11AM and has you returned to your hotel between 5-5:30PM. Travel time is a little over one hour each way.
So take a look, enjoy and book yourself a tour of beautiful and historical Oak Alley and Laura Plantations!
