Get a taste of antebellum Louisiana on this half-day tour from New Orleans to two of the finest plantations on the Mississippi River! Enjoy a scenic, narrated drive along Lake Pontchartrain. Cross the Mississippi on a high suspended bridge and head a short distance upriver along the Great River Road to beautiful St Joseph Plantation, a family-owned, Creole-style sugar plantation that's been operating since 1877. Learn about the colorful lives of the owners and their families as you tour the mansion, former slave cabins, a blacksmith's shop and schoolhouse. Next, head a bit farther upriver to Houmas House Plantation and Gardens, to admire the columned exterior of the Greek Revival-style mansion, nicknamed the ‘Sugar Palace.’ Stroll among gorgeous old oak trees and savor the warm breeze before hopping in your van for the drive back New Orleans.
