Reis met je reisgroep aan boord van een comfortabele bus en ga op weg langs de Great River Road, die parallel loopt aan de Mississippi-rivier helemaal naar Minnesota. Tijdens deze 7,5 uur durende rondleiding bezoekt u de twee plantages die u bij het boeken hebt geselecteerd.
Whitney Plantation: Whitney Plantation opende in 2014 voor het eerst haar deuren voor het publiek als een museum gewijd aan het eren en behouden van de slavernijgeschiedenis in het zuiden. De plantage dateert uit 1803 en staat in het Amerikaanse nationale register van historische plaatsen.
Oak Alley Plantation: bekijk de lange steeg van 28 eikenbomen, elk meer dan 250 jaar oud, geplant voordat het huis in 1839 werd aangelegd. Je kunt ook het moerassige gebied van cipressen langs de rivier de Mississippi bekijken. Deze plantage is een nationaal historisch monument van de VS, bekend om zijn architectuur met de Griekse Revival
Laura Plantation: De rondleiding door deze creatie in Louisiana Creole, die is opgenomen in het Amerikaanse nationale register van historische plaatsen, is gebaseerd op 5.000 pagina's documenten gevonden in het Franse nationale archief. Aanvullende informatie komt uit de memoires Herinneringen aan het oude plantagehuis, geschreven door Laura Locoul Gore, die 250 jaar van de mensen die hier woonden en werkten, detailleert.

The bus driver and the tour guide were so pleasant. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and provided us with detail information from the time we left New Orleans and arrived at the Laural Plantation.
The young man that was our guide at Laural was superb.
Did not enjoy the visit to Oak Alley as well. Guide didn't seem as informative.

We had to meet by 9AM at the Natchez boat by the French Quarter. Bus left on time, and our driver was very informative in his presentation on the way to the Plantations. Enjoyed everything about Laura Plantation, and then Oak Alley, which is just beautiful. My only recommendation is not to tell the group that the bus would arrive back at the boat dock at 4:15PM. With traffic, and rain, we left Oak Alley Plantation right at 3PM, did not arrive until 5:45. I would suggest dinner reservations be after 6:30PM, as I had to cancel my dinner plans due to not arriving back on time.

interesting tour with nice bus commentary on way out.
Whitney was more about the salve history of the salves working on the Whitney plantain. the house visit was very small portion of tour
Laura was both with morn on the history of the owners , house tour was a bit longer
As it was an all day tour these plantations did not have a cafe to eat out only snack bars so bring your own food

Overall we enjoyed the plantation tours. It was nice being able to select the two of our choice. Most of the Laura plantation tour takes place in the main house (which is not that large) and did not consist of much else. The Oak Alley plantation gave us a chance to explore on our own and they have a nice restaurant there for lunch. Be aware that the ticket here is overpriced for children. We overpaid by about $20 in total because Viator considers 13+ an adult. However, the plantations themselves would have charged us reduced admission for children under 18.

I went to Oak Alley and Laura Plantation. Oak Valley has beatiful views of the Houses and the Oak are great. And you can walk in the field free, and there is a guide tour in the Big house of about 30 min. Laura has not such beatiful view or houses, but the place give you a real impression of the life there. You can visit the place only with the guide, but the stories are really great. It give you a real impression of the life of the slaves in the sugar plantation.

Excellent tour from beginning to end. The bus driver alone was hilarious, entertaining and extremely knowledgeable about everything New Orleans and Louisiana. We did the Whitney and Oak Alley plantations. Both had a very different feel and mood to them. The Whitney tour spent a great deal of time talking about the slave trade and lives of the slaves not only at that plantation but in general throughout history. The tour was fully escorted from beginning to end. The Oak Alley plantation was quite different in that it was more like a huge open-air museum with exhibits everywhere. The only guided tour was of the main, big house. No one was allowed to enter without a ticket and a guide. This tour emphasized the difference in the experience between the masters and the slaves and how they both lived their lives from their own perspectives. Again another excellent, eye-opening tour. Highly recommended, especially if you get Jude as your bus driver.

We toured the Laura and Oak Alley plantations. Our driver, Ken kept us entertained on the trip to the plantation with historical facts about Katrina and the effects on the city in addition to other landmarks. The Laura Plantation tour was very interesting as it is presented from the perspective of one of the plantation owners and gave a good picture of not just the plantation but the life and relationships of the owners and slaves equally. The plantation and grounds were very beautiful. Our only complaint was that after the tour was over, you could not walk around the grounds. Oak Alley was very beautiful with many oak trees over 200 years old. You are able to freely walk through the grounds to learn about different parts of plantation life. They also have a full restaurant and bar in case that interest you. The actual tour of the home was okay. There is not as much info about the slaves and after the Laura tour, we felt it was a little lacking. Overall, both were interesting and beautiful and definitely worth your time.

Whitney Plantation was an amazing experience, it spoke the truth about slavery in a relevant way that reminds us that we have a responsibility today to make sure that we focus on education and family in order to not repeat the past mistakes. Our tour guide was passionate and knowledgeable. He kept us engaged and spoke with passion and clarity. Oak Alley was breath-taking beautiful and I appreciate that the tour guides now includes slavery as part of the history and discussion of the plantation tour. These two tours were like two sides of a coin. I know the Laura plantation tour speaks from an owner's perspective, as Whitney speaks from the slave's perspective. I would highly recommend that no matter what your second plantation you choose, make Whitney your first choice.
