    Laura: Louisiana's Creole Heritage Site
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    On this 5.5-hour tour, begin with a hotel pickup, followed by a 75-minute drive to the Laura Plantation in Vacherie. Along the way, listen to stories of all aspects of the plantation life. The Laura Plantation tour is considered by many in the tour industry as the best historical plantation tour in the Mississippi Valley. The plantation was run by four Creole women, most notably a woman named Laura, for whom the plantation is named. The women ran the plantation for more than 60 years, using slave labor to do it. See and explore the slave quarters, and discover the unique architecture of the manor house, the colorful gardens, and the sugar cane fields. The house was nearly destroyed by fire back in 2003, but it was rebuilt to the original design using building materials from antique homes. The rebuilding process is a story in itself. The tour concludes with a return trip to New Orleans and a hotel drop-off.

Logan was an amazing guide! He had extensive knowledge of the plantation and surrounding areas. He did a very good job explaining things and answering questions. The location is stunning and you can tell the employees love their job. Great trip for our family!

We are so sorry for the poor experience that you had with the buses. We run on a time schedule so that's why we couldn't accommodate you with the extra time. We do understand your frustration and we hope to make it up to you at another time if given the opportunity. We are glad that you did get to enjoy the time at the plantation.

Both my teenagers recently completed units on the Civil War and I thought it would be good for them to see real plantation. After reading a bunch of reviews about the different plantation tours, I decided to book a tour of just the Laura Plantation. A number of reviews

I have never been a huge fan of walking heritage tours but the staff at Laura made this plantation tour worth it. Incredible human history in this place.
