This tour was well worthwhile. Our guide, Jacques, was friendly, professional and very knowledgeable. We visited Oak Alley and Laura Plantation which was a nice balance with different perspectives. Our guide at Laura was Logan who was also fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour.

You can visit the plantation on your own. You will have to pay an entrance fee when you get there. Once inside, you can tour the area at your leisure. The house is a guided tour that occurs at specific times.
