PLANTATION TOURS: EVERGREEN and OAK ALLEY

Includes Transportation from New Orleans French Quarter & Downtown Hotels

Join us for an unforgettable narrated journey through scenic cypress swamp and wetlands to historic Old River Road. Learn of the legendary Code Noire, daily plantation life, slave auctions, customs, slave rebellions, voodoo, the Creoles and tales of life in and around  antebellum New Orleans.

- Your view from Old River Road begins with Columbia plantation and the surreal sight of stately Evergreen plantation rising from fog and morning mists against the green of century old oaks and sugar cane. Be amazed by the sight of  22 white slave cabins draped by spanish moss and framed by oak trees, eleven on a side, facing each other down a dirt road . Learn of the archeological digs and efforts of on site professionals to preserve the plantation. Tour the Evergreen mansion with plantation guides and learn of Louisiana's beginnings as well as Evergreen's  history, antiques and architecture. The slave cabins are our next stop.  Oddly, when standing behind the mansion near the slave compound, one sees nothing from the 20th and 21st Centuries. It's the closest feeling you'll ever get to being back in antebellum times.The slave compound will send chills up and down your spine.

- Next view Whitney, Laura, Felicite' and St. Joseph plantations along Old River Road before arriving at historic Oak Alley Plantation for an hour long antebellum mansion tour. Sip a mint julep under 3 century old oaks, take photographs or check out the gift shop or the cafe' and we're on our way back to New Orleans . We return about 2 p.m.. We promise you a journey into the past you'll remember for the rest of your life..
