We visited Laura after Oak Alley. It might not be as grand but the tour and history was fascinating. Our guide Stephen was brilliant sharing the story of the family and the slaves. This is a place not to be missed.

Definitely do both if in the area. They're about 5 minutes apart. Not as grand as Oak Alley, but worth a visit.

We went for a tour with Rose and she was amazing! She really made the history jump to life, and was so knowledgeable! I have no idea what the other guides are like, but I felt like we just lucked out with her!

Sorry, we also drove. I would call the Plantation. It was an easy drive and care rentals reasonable for the day--when booked in advance.
