See both houses or just one: Oak Alley and Laura are the two most popular plantations near New Orleans. You can visit both historic plantations in the same day or go to just one. You choose! Oak Alley is absolutely beautiful while Laura has fascinating history. On our combo tour, we will pick you up, drive you to Oak Alley, where you will tour the grounds and house, then we'll take you to Laura, where you will tour the grounds, house and slave cabins, then we'll bring you back to the French Quarter. Our individual tours give you a choice of which house you'll visit. 

Oak Alley: Oak Alley is famous for its 300-year-old live oak trees that line the home's entrance. You'll walk under that gorgeous canopy of trees as you enter the house. Your tour guides will be dressed like characters in Gone with the Wind as they show you the different rooms of the house. You'll learn about the history and owners. You will also have plenty of time to take photos and grab a bite to eat at the restaurant on the grounds. 

Laura: Laura was a plantation that was run for three generations in the 1800s by Creole women. One of them, a woman named Laura Gore, wrote a a memoir, so you'll hear first hand accounts of living there. You can even buy her book if you'd like. You'll tour the big house as well as original slave cabins, which will give you an incredibly full picture of life on the plantation. This plantation is where the original Brer Rabbit stories were recorded, passed down from the oral tradition of former slaves. 

Hotel Pickup: Each tour features hotel pickup from most French Quarter and Central Business District hotels in a comfortable, climate-controlled mini coach.
