Overzicht

Ervaar de grootsheid van het rijke en strijdige verleden van New Orleans op een kleine plantagetour door een groep. Maak een reis van 6 uur door Oak Alley Plantation en Laura Plantation en bespioneer andere historische plantages terwijl u de Great River Road afreist. Bekijk verbluffende architectuur, met eiken omzoomde esplanades en blijvende suikerrietvelden en leer over de fascinerende - en vaak sombere - geschiedenis van de plantages van deskundige gidsen.
  • Rondleidingen in Oak Alley en Laura-plantages vanuit New Orleans
  • Zie gidsen in klederdracht en prachtige oude eiken op Oak Alley Plantation
  • Door de tuinen en historische slavenkwartieren van Laura Plantation
  • Meer informatie over Oak Alley, Laura en andere lokale plantages uit je gids
Kies de ochtend of middag voor uw historische plantentour en geniet van de pick-up van uw hotel in het centrum van New Orleans. Eenmaal aan boord van de bus, vestig je je in een comfortabele stoel en bereid je voor op een reis terug naar het zuiden van het zuiden, voordat de Amerikaanse Burgeroorlog het fundament van het plantage-leven schudde. Geniet van levendige commentaar aan boord van je gids terwijl je de kustlijn van Lake Ponchartrain en Great River Road volgt, onderweg naar je eerste stop - Oak Alley Plantation.
De Oak Alley Plantation, zo genoemd naar het briefkaart-perfecte bladerdak van knoestige eikenbomen die zijn toegangspromenade omzoomt, is een eeuwenoud juweel van het Zuiden dat onlangs is herleefd. Begin met een wandeling door het romantische maar imposante eikenpad naar het 'Big House', een perfect gerestaureerd voorbeeld van vooroorlogse elegantie en Griekse Revival-architectuur. Ontmoet geïnformeerde gidsen in historische kostuums en leer over de vele levens die ooit de plantage hadden bezet. Verken de weelderige kamers van dit klassieke huis in het zuiden, de tentoonstelling Burgeroorlog en het Slave Quarter en neem daarna wat vrije tijd om te dwalen over het betoverende terrein.
Ga vervolgens verder langs Great River Road en bewonder onderweg uitzichten en verhalen over Whitney, St. Joseph en Evergreen-plantages. Kom aan bij Laura Plantation, een creoolse plantage waarvan het opvallende en kleurrijke herenhuis het reservaat van Oak Alley in schril contrast stelt. Begeleid je gids tijdens een rondleiding door het landhuis, bijgebouwen en slavenverblijven, genietend van verhalen over de Creoolse cultuur en West-Afrikaanse volksverhalen, waarvan wordt gezegd dat het de inspiratie is voor Br'er Rabbit-verhalen. Wandel door levendige bloemen- en moestuinen en bewonder de omliggende suikerrietvelden - een weelderige achtergrond en een grimmige herinnering aan het dramatische verleden van de camping voordat u terugkeert naar de stad.
Je 6-uur durende tour eindigt met een drop-off op je punt van herkomst in het midden van de middag of avond.

The tour was coordinated by Tours by Isabelle. Our driver/guide was John - a very likable Cajun who provided plenty of local flavor and stories, although we did hear some of the same things on the way back to NOLA that we heard on the way to the plantations. We were scheduled to be picked up at 8:30. The day before we got a call that it was moved up to 7:50 because they had to pick up several other parties. It turns out that we were next to last to be picked up and some of the people were picked up as early as 7:30. On the way to the first plantation Laura, John is calling it to find out when it opens. He didn't know. It turns out it was 10:00 so we drove around to kill time before we got there. Isabelle needs to plan this better.

The Laura tour was excellent. The tour is well planned with a thorough history of the plantation and plenty of stories about its owners, etc. It included the main house and several out buildings and provided a good picture of life in its heyday. Our guide was very good sorry- I don't remember his name. They have a small museum in the back of the gift shop that was chock full of good information. It is easy to miss, but check it out if you like that kind of thing.

The Oak Alley plantation house was more impressive, but the tour was lacking. We were lead through several rooms in the house and then we were free to roam the grounds. Our guide sounded like a recording - as if she had recited this tour a hundred times. The tour was large and she would start her spiel in each room before everyone even had a chance to enter the room. When I asked her to wait for everyone, she was not interested. She said they could ask questions if they need to. I guess they were on a strict time schedule. The grounds were interesting and there was some very good information in the slave quarters that is worth seeing.

John was really nice to return us to anywhere in NOLA that we wanted to be dropped off and even gave is a bit of a driving tour of the Jackson Square and Frenchmen Street areas before doing so.

If you do this, be aware that lunch is not really planned and you will return to the city after 2:00. There is a little restaurant at Oak Alley where you can get a sandwich and you will likely to want to do that during the time you have to explore the grounds there.

We had a great time and our driver was very knowledgeable about the history of NOLA as well as both plantations. It was a full day and worth the price on Viator!

Laura focused more on the story of one family and much about the history and life of the slaves. Our guide was incredibly knowledgable.
Nice gift shop.

Oak Alley was beautiful, home and grounds. Also nice restaurant and good food. More info about plantation life.
Very informative and enjoyable. Don't miss..

This was an excellent tour. Our guide, John, was well informed and answered several questions as well as providing us with a good amount of information on the drive to the plantations. The two plantations are very different, but the plantation guides were wonderful. I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent tour. Great guide. Plantations we're worth the trip. A low ceiling in the van however made for a tough ride/entrance/exit.

The trip was very nice. The guide Cat picked us up at our hotel promptly and she provided lots of fun facts along the way. Oak Alley was beautiful, but the tour there was quite large and the guide not so special. The Laura Plantation Tour was small, really just our group and the guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. 3 thumbs up.

This small group about 12 people tour takes you to two Plantations- Oak Alley American style and Laura French-Creole. Oak Alley is beautiful, although I found Laura more interesting. You are taken on tours through the houses which are very good for history and information. Stories of the enslaved and how they were treated are very sad.You also see some other plantations from the road. Our driver John was full of stories and continually pointed things out throughout the trip. There is a good cafe at Oak Alley with food. Souvenir shops at both.Highly recommend this tour
