Go beyond New Orleans to tour two grand Louisiana plantations on the banks of the Mississippi River. Watch guides in period costume bring to life the history of Oak Alley Plantation, named after a double row of live oaks planted nearly 300 years ago. Then tour the Creole Laura Plantation with its sweeping sugarcane fields and historically significant slave quarters. Admire several other plantations on the Great River Road from afar, and learn their unique stories.

On your ride out to Oak Alley Plantation, you will see and hear all about Whitney, Josephine, and Evergreen Plantations. Your guided tour of Oak Alley Plantation will allow you time to admire this jewel of Greek Revival architecture. The quarter-mile canopy of giant live oak trees, believed to be nearly 300 years old, forms an impressive avenue leading to the classic Greek-revival style antebellum home. Next visit Laura, a Creole Plantation and her historic slave quarters surrounded by sugar cane fields. The guided tour transports you with dramatic detail into the charmed yet tragic lives of four generations of Creole owners and their slaves.
