  • The tour is interesting and the staff is very knowledgable. However, it tells more about the family who used to run it then how the slaves were treated or life they had

  • Very nice plantation!
  • Excellent tour. Guide Lisa was very good.
  • Awesome tour . The guides are very knowledgeable and nice. The tell a story through the tour. Must go if visiting Nola
  • If you want to visit a plantation I would recommend the Oak Alley one down the road. The Laura plantation is nice too, but not in as good of a shape as Oak Alley. Also no free walking around.
  • At first I didnt want to go here because of the -not that great looking-house but it was an amazing tour with an amazing story!
