A wonderful tour. A very detailed discription of the plantation from its founding to present day. Our tour guide, Logan, did a wonderful job. Very knowledgeable. I would suggest this plantation tour to anyone interested in the total picture of plantation life.

It was an enlightening experience, looking back on a by gone era. Very sad how humans can be so cruel. Michael, our tour guide was very informative and knew much about the plantation.

I have been to the Laura Plantation twice and have loved it both times. I had an amazing tour guide both times who were extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the history. My only regret is I didn’t write their names down because they were truly amazing. Especially the one we had yesterday. If this site can add his name, I would be ok with that!!

Very knowledgeable and passionate tour guide - an excellent way to gain an insight into the lives and conditions of the plantation owners, their families and slaves. Transport from hotel to main bus was quite good. Bus from New Orleans to the plantation was not as comfortable as expected for the time spent on board.

Really interesting Tour. Our guide Logan was very informative and introduced an element of fun into the walk. Even the coach trip to get to and from the plantation was enjoyable with our driver Brian giving good background information on Katrina and its aftermath.
