    Destrehan Plantation
    Stop: 90 minutes - Admission included
    Get picked up at your hotel in New Orleans to begin this combination day tour, which lasts a little more than 6 hours. First, visit the Destrehan Plantation, built in 1787 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Travel through time from the French and Spanish Colonial periods through the Antebellum grandeur of the sugar barons to the ravages of the Civil War and the rebirth of reconstruction. You will find yourself immersed in the rich history of Louisiana when French was the language, and the white gold of sugar drove the economy. An 1811 slave revolt museum/cabin is on the grounds along with its massive oak trees. Family stories of those free and enslaved set against the fabric of history will intrigue every visitor to the site. A house tour is approximately 1 hour, with time to walk the grounds and see the slave cabin. This includes time for lunch (own expense) if time permits.

We really enjoyed every aspect of both parts of the tour. The only reason for the 4 stars was that our driver (tour bus) to the airboat, never stopped to get us anything to eat which was stated on the brochure (and we *plus another couple* were on time, just for to make sure
