New Orleans All Day Plantation Tour by Van

New Orleans All Day Plantation Tour by Van

Take a narrated scenic drive out of the city and along the shores of Lake Pontchartrain to visit 3 Plantations on the East bank of the Old River Road: a pilgrimage back in time to the Antebellum South.

First is a guided tour of Destrehan Plantation where guides in period costumes will bring to life the stories of generations who lived on and worked this land - both owners and slaves. They will share with you every detail of this mansion's history since 1787. There will be free time to walk around under a spectacular canopy of live oaks around the mansion and the slave quarters.

Then a short ride upriver brings you to the San Francisco Plantation, a vibrant and colorful Steamboat Gothic style mansion surrounded by sugar cane fields. Your tour guide will lead you through the detailed lives of generations of Creole owners and their families, both their triumphs and their tragedies.

Before your guided mansion tour, you will be greeted at Houmas House; refreshing Mint juleps will be available for purchase. There will be time for you to enjoy a leisurely lunch at the restaurant on the estate (Not included in tour price). After lunch, experience the southern splendor of this "Sugar Palace." Enjoy the breeze off the Mississippi and navigate through the shadows of ancient oaks.

Tour requires a minimum of 6 persons to depart.
