Grand Tour with 2 Plantations & Airboat Swamp Tour Photos (8)

See Louisiana like never before on the amazing Grand Plantation Tour with 2 Plantations & Airboat Swamp Tour. This all-inclusive adventure is great for your family (ages 6 and older only) and brings tons of interesting sights and thrills to those who embark upon it, giving them a new way to learn about and experience the Bayou. This awesome tour includes an immersive look at two historic plantations and tops it off with a fun Airboat Swamp Tour!

Your trip begins when you are picked up by your driver. Boarding a comfortable van, you will be whisked away on an unforgettable journey through some of Louisiana's most interesting places. You will see the beautiful shores of Lake Pontchartrain during a fully-narrated 90-minute drive to your first destinations of Laura & Oak Alley Plantations.

About Laura Plantation


With four generations of Creole owners and slaves having lived and died here, Laura Plantation is extremely interesting and has many historical significances in Louisiana roots. You will be able to tour the beautiful Maison Principale, the gorgeous sugar cane fields, Jardin Francais, Banana Land, and twelve beautiful restored buildings. These buildings are preserved in their original states and are recognized as homes on the National Register of Historic Places. These buildings were the homes of the slaves who lived and worked at Laura Plantation. This tour doesn't sugarcoat the somber history of slavery, either. You will learn the true stories of these families while touring the 1840s slave cabins and the recording location of Compere Lapin (Rascal Br'er Rabbit).

After your tour around Laura Plantation, you will be taken to Oak Alley Plantation where you will be able to feast upon a delicious Louisiana-style lunch at the restaurant there. The menu items are amazing, featuring Cajun favorites such as chicken and sausage gumbo, crawfish etouffee with white rice, red beans and rice, home-baked rolls and butter, and indulgent bread pudding or buttermilk pie and coffee. After you’ve gotten your fill of amazing Cajun food, you will be able to embark upon your journey around Oak Alley Plantation.

About Oak Alley Plantation


Oak Plantation is known for its beautiful live oak trees which stretch across the pathway in a beautiful arch-type arrangement. There are 28 of these massive trees, each looked after with the utmost care by the groundskeepers. Take a stroll underneath these towering beauties for a relaxing time. You will also be able to learn about the Greek Revival-style mansion and everything that has happened within its walls since the early 1800s. The reconstructed slave cabins with the “Slavery at Oak Alley” exhibits are also interesting.

About the Airboat Ride


After a day of learning of the most interesting mansions and plantations in Louisiana, you will be able to embark upon a fun and thrilling airboat ride through the swamplands. After driving to this Cajun site, you will board a small airboat for a journey through marshes and bayous abound. Keep a lookout for Louisiana wildlife - fish, birds, turtles, and alligators are just a few of the creatures you might see. Your Airboat Captain is extremely knowledgeable and can help to answer all of your questions about the swamp. For ages 6 and older ONLY. Children 5 and under and pregnant women are not allowed on the airboat.
