Authentic Southern Experience
South Louisiana is known for its beautiful antebellum architecture and there are plenty of plantation homes that are within an hours drive from New Orleans. We will visit two magnificent plantations during our tour. Get a feel for the Antebellum South as you look out over rows of oak trees to the Mississippi river from the porch of a plantation home. The architecture and beauty of these homes alone is impressive - the stories that go with them are even better. Hear stories about the history of the homes - the famous local families that built and owned them, the people that walked through their halls - the walls can't talk but your tour guide will. The rich history of these storied homes will make you feel like you've walked out of life and into a novel.
I will pick you up at the scheduled time and we will head to the first of two plantations on the itinerary.
The group tour of the plantation house and grounds will take between 60-90 minutes depending on your pace.
If you decide we may either have some drinks and food at the Plantation or a local spot on the way to the second Plantation stop.
The complete Tour will lasts between 5-7 hours, depending on which plantations are visited and other factors.
