What you can expect

Grand mansions and live oak-shaded alleys line the riverbanks in Louisiana's plantation country. Step into the past on a private tour of these frozen-in-time estates, and learn about daily life in the antebellum South and after the Civil War for landowners and slaves alike.

Get picked up from your hotel and ride out of New Orleans, listening as your guide shares stories and facts about the region's history and heritage and offers insight into the tragedies of slavery in the American South. Ride along the River Road to see massive Greek Revival houses and Creole plantation homes to a look at the glory, wealth, and glamour that coexisted with the tragedy and oppression of this particular era in the country's past.

Pass through swamplands, small towns, and agricultural areas between stops, and then step out to tour the grounds and gardens of the plantations on foot as experts describe the history of each property. If you'd like, you can purchase tickets to head inside some of the houses to see period antiques and furnishings from centuries past. At lunchtime, grab lunch at a plantation restaurant or ask your driver for a tip on a nearby restaurant with authentic Cajun cuisine, and head back to New Orleans with a deeper understanding of the effects of slavery and the Civil War on Louisiana's culture, economy, people, and politics.
