Su entrada incluye un tour de 70 minutos con un guía experto que compartirá la rica historia de la cultura criolla desde la perspectiva de la familia que fue propietaria de la plantación Laura durante generaciones. Recorra la casa principal, los jardines y las estancias de los esclavos para hacerse una idea más exacta de las personas que vivieron y trabajaron aquí durante siglos.
We didn't have a lot of time in this part of Louisiana, so there was really only one plantation we could check out. We were not disappointed by our choice! Our tour guide, Cameron, did an excellent job of filling us in on the history of this site. The stories within stories were all very impressive as Cameron kept up a fascinating running commentary and description in an animated manner. Though it was likely his umpteenth time in leading a tour, he made it sound fresh. Walking beneath the giant oaks and wandering through the various buildings combined with the commentary gives the visitor a wonderful sense of life in its heyday. An afternoon well-spent!
Really great tour and place..this really focuses on the family like most plantation tours in Louisiana however unlike most they do have some actually stories, pictures and artifacts from the slaves who lived there. The house and slave quarters are well preserved. They were going to repair mother in law house but a fire happened in the main that took all the money so I would go back when that was done. The tour guide was very nice and knowledgable. As far as overall experience I feel this plantation store is the best ..there are many food items for sale that are quite usually if you aren't from the area. I picked up some pecan oil and cane jelly two things that I didn't even know existed. The book selection is really great as well. Not only modern books but replicas of old books such as a slave cookbook, creole cookbook from back then and children's books from back then like toys and games played back then..this is worth a tour
The tour was excellent, but a family had a toddler with them and she whined and was very distracting the whole tour. I had to purchase tickets to attend the tour, and the toddler was free of charge. I think there should be a statement saying that if children are a distraction, please take them out of the room while the tour is going on. Katy was our tour guide and she was excellent!
