"I am NOT a tour kind of..." Plantation Tours Tip by CDNgirl

Plantation Tours, New Orleans: 7 reviews and 12 photos

I am NOT a tour kind of person, but I really enjoyed the plantation tour we took down River Road.
The Laura Plantation was extremely interesting, and the guide full of information on the history on the home and the four generations of women who ran it. I was very impressed and appreciated how unrushed and 'unherded' I felt on the tour of the house. Another, Oak Alley, showed quite a contrast between plantations. Oak Alley is quite famous, seen in many movies(Primary Colors, Interview with a Vampire), and exactly what you would expect a southern plantation to be. Big white pillars and huge oak trees make this plantation specactular.

Directions: Along River Road, also known as Plantation Row, for the number of restored and still occupied plantations along the Mississippi River. About an hour south west of New Orleans on Hwy 18 towards Baton R
othercontact: Laura Plantation 2247 Hwy 18 Vac

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
