Itinerary

This combination tour features Whitney and Laura Plantations.

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 apart 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.

Whitney was great - the tour guide gave a thorough view of life on the plantation from the perspective of a slave and did not sugarcoat or romanticize anything. I learned a lot about the economics of slavery. Laura was also great - the perspective was balanced from the viewpoints of the plantation owning family and slaves. The stories, or snapshots/vignettes, about the family and slaves were interesting. Also, our bus driver Ken was fantastic and got us to and from the plantations safely. He was charismatic and provided lots of information about New Orleans along the way.

From the time we entered our tour bus, til we reached the plantations, Reginald our driver entertained us with a wealth of knowledge of New Orleans and surrounding areas, as well information on history of Mardi Gras, Political Figures, and upcoming festivals in the area. The Plantations we visited were outstanding, one being different from the other. The Whitney still has my mind racing, no sugarcoating here, this Plantation tells all and is a must see. The Laura, a Creole Plantation, also a must see, to know that some of the slaves were still inhabitating there until the 70’s.

5 stars for experiencing 2 different types of tours. Which I believe is a must.3 stars for Laura5 stars for WhitneyWhitney plantation really focuses on what living/ working conditions were like for African slaves and provided the history of how the slave trade began. The tour guides are extremely knowledgeable and really fit a lot information in for the 1.5 hours we were there for. To get the full story, it would take 5 hours to complete the tour.Laura plantation really focuses on the family who ran a business with some (very) brief mention of slaves. We later found out that the family who ran this plantation were much worse than what was explained during our tour (possibly for sake of maintaining a business?). Although it was interesting to know the history of the family, but the dark side of the story must also be told and not washed over.If people would like to get the full informative experience, Whitney and Laura are the 2 plantations you should do.
