My husband and I wanted to visit only one plantation during our trip to New Orleans. After discussing our love for history with our b&b host, she recommended that we visit Laura Plantation. I'm so glad she did! We toured the home, grounds and slave quarters, but more importantly, our guide was very knowledgeable of the history of the home and the family who lived there, as well as how the slaves there were treated in the pre- and post-civil war eras.

Enjoyed this plantation, although I would have preferred the tour to detail more of the slaves endurance, although there is a 4 roomed museum devoted to their lives and what the people had to go through. This tour focused on the owners of the plantation.

If you get Kyle as a guide you might want to pick a different tour time, he will not wait for you and if you plan to go back to look at something he will act as police and will say no, has no regards that people visiting are guests who paid for the tour and came from long distances and it is okay if they ask for extra time or want to go back and take a quick look at something... Extremely disappointed in him but the plantation is nice...
