Laura Plantation was built and operated by four Creole women. The main house burned down in 2003, and an exact replica was built using wood and materials from other antique buildings. The rebuilding of the plantation house is a story in itself. You'll learn how the southern folk tale Br'er Rabbit was first recorded here as part of this unique tour and see the darker side of history--the slave quarters
It is approximately a 1 hour 15 minute ride from the French Quarter to the Plantations. Restrooms are available at the plantation. Most of the house and trails are wheel chair accessible. Foldable wheelchairs are convenient for movement around the grounds and in the plantation house.
- Complimentary Hotel Pickup & Drop-off

Review by Plantation tour back into history
The plantations were very nice, and they had their own guides who did a good job. We have good things to say about the restaurant at Oak Alley--we had only a few moments and they accommodated us nicely. The ride to and from was something else. The driver had been with them only 2 months and the trip out there was white-knuckle driving all the way--we passed every vehicle on the road. Not sure if we were late leaving NO--possibly, because the trip home was fine, and the driver did make time for photos a couple of places. (Posted on 10/14/2016)

The tour was wonderful. Our bus driver was very pleasant, funny and up-to-date on New Orleans, Katrina and the area. The guides at each plantation were great!! My husband and I enjoyed the day. I think the tour could leave earlier in the morning so we would have more time for lunch. If you had lunch, there was not much time to wander around at Oak Alley. Overall a great tour.

The Oak Alley tour was very pleasant. The new slave quarter section is most interesting. The Laura is spectacular, though. It is highly educational and interesting. Touring the main building and the surrounding property adds a new dimension of understanding of antebellum LA. life, which differs from VA plantation life in several aspects. I loved it.

My recent Oak Alley and Laura Combo Plantation tour fulfilled all of my expectations and then some! The plantations were truly beautiful and the tour guides really knew their stuff, telling interesting stories filled with history. Made it all come alive for us and I learned more than I thought I would. The pace was leisurely, never hurried and it was just a relaxing, fun afternoon at a great price. Our driver was also very good, timely and friendly. All of our dealings with NO Tour Company went off without a hitch and we will use them for any and all tours in NO in the future. They really know the area! (Posted on 6/2/2014)

Very good tours. Both tours gave us a great picture of how these places came to be and how the people who lived there 9inclduing the slaves) lived. (Posted on 5/27/2014)
