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.

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.

A sad history lesson but worthwhile.

Beautiful, spell bounding and lots of stories and information given. Laura provided information about both the family who lived in the house as well as the part of the slaves who worked the land, the roles they had and what their experiences of this period in time was like for them. Whereas, Oak Alley was more focused on the roles of the family members although there were lots of evidence of where the slaves lived, how they lived and their names but this was discovered by walking around and seeing for yourself. Well worth the experience and I wold highly recommend a visit to both plantations.
