Antebellum plantations are an important part of Louisiana history and architecture, with prime examples just outside New Orleans’ city limits. See below for your options in touring these historic and elegant plantation homes in the American South.
 
Group Tours
Join a guide and group for a trip to one of New Orleans' plantations, with options ranging from half-day excursions to overnight adventures. Group tours are a cost-effective option for exploring, and destinations range from the Creole-owned Laura Plantation to the elegant Oak Alley Plantation and Houmas House Plantation, where costumed guides usher you through the grounds.

Private Tours 
For those with limited time or a larger group, private tours offer the flexibility to tailor the experience to your needs with the personal attention of a driver and guide. Many private tours offer roundtrip transport from your accommodations in New Orleans, making these a good option for groups without their own transportation.

Plantation and Swamp Boat Combo Tours
If you want to add some Louisiana wildlife to your trip, swamp boat tours head straight into the bayou—swampland that's home to crocodiles, catfish, and some serious Cajun history. Combining a swamp boat tour with a plantation visit gives two very different perspectives on Louisiana, from plantation culture to bayou backwaters.
