While the house tour was merely a memorized version of the brochure, the grounds ARE spectacular! And to walk from the stately mansion to the slave quarters and see the contrast of the lives was meaningful to say the least! The slave building are set up as a walk through tour

The timing of combining both plantation tours as one event made it a bit lopsided for the amount of time we could spend. Oak Alley is the more interesting tour of the two

I had such an enjoyable time on this trip, booked through Cajun Encounters. I didn't go to Laura Plantation, only Oak Alley. Our driver Al, was funny, informative and knowledgeable about the history of New Orleans and Oak Alley Plantation. He made the trip there and back so

I was advised that there was WiFi and the tour was supposed to finished by 4:30 pm. This doesn't to be right as there is NO WiFi and the tour completed around 3:30pm. The bus left Oak Alley at 2:00pm and it takes only 1:30 to get back to New Orleans down town.
