As Plantations me proporcionaram uma bela experiência. A paisagem e maravilhosa e pude aprender bastante sobre a história e cultura local .

Dommage qu'on ne puisse pas se balader seuls dans Laura Plantation; cependant le tour y est exhaustif. Le tour de la villa de Oak Allley est peu intéressant en comparaison. Privilégier une balade dans la propriété. Bon combo de plantations de styles très différents.

Right amount of time and value for the price

The Laura Plantation was excellent. The Oak Alley was okay. I felt like I got more history from the Laura Plantation. I did not have enough time to visit the entire Oak Alley Plantation. So that was a bummer.

ITINERARY

Gray Line now offers a special tour where guests will be able to choose 2 of 3 plantation to visit on the Great River Road that winds along the Mississippi River: Whitney Plantation, Laura Plantation, and Oak Alley Plantation. The possible combination are as follows: Whitney/Laura, Whitney/Oak Alley, or Laura/Oak Alley.

Whitney Plantation – Opened to the public for the first time in 262 years, it is the only plantation museum in Louisiana with a focus on slavery. Through museum exhibits, memorial artwork, restored buildings and hundreds of first – person slave narratives, Whitney serves as a site of memory and consciousness that pays homage to all slaves who lived and died here, as well as those who lived elsewhere in the United States.

Laura Plantation – Enter a fascinating world of Creoles who, at this sugar plantation, lived part from the American mainstream for over 200 years. The tour is based on four generations of family documents revealing the real-life accounts of the owners, women, slaves and children who lived here.

Oak Alley Plantation – Oak Ally, the Grand Dame of the River Road, is Louisiana’s most photographed plantation, showcasing beautiful Greek revival architecture. See a plantation that once played hosts to a civil War encampment. Stroll the magnificent alley of 300 year old live oak trees to the Mississippi River.
