This creole plantation tour shared a very different history than the Oak Alley Plantation tour. I recommend visiting both to learn very different stories. Do note that these grounds can only be explored in the tour- you are not free to walk them alone.

Must see. This is one of the better rated plantation tours in the New Orleans area. Our guide Rocky was a wealth of history, information, and amazing storytelling.

Side note: If you are combining this tour with a swamp tour, don't use Cajun Pride

The Laura Plantation is a Creole plantation, and the tour explains what this means. As the tour information is based on a first-person account (the eponymous Laura), I learned quite a lot. The tour guide we had, Joseph, is a 4th generation Creole, which only added to the tour. His knowledge of the history of this plantation as well as the history of New Orleans and all of Louisiana was incredible. We were very fortunate to be placed in his group. What's so notable about the tours of this plantation is that they don't feel like it's just text from a history book being read aloud -- because it's not. It creates a really valuable experience that I highly recommend.

Our guide, Reneé, was very informative and answered all our questions. The house and grounds are well maintained. If you're in New Orleans a few days, take one day to visit this plantation because it's worth the day trip.

This was our second time here and luckily enough to get Lindie as our tour guide. She is awesome. Very knowledgeable and passionate about her work. Would definitely refer this plantation to others and you'll be lucky to get Lindie.
