This was an excellent tour. Have lived in the area for 78 years and I am degree in history and thought our guide did an excellent job of explaining life on a plantation. Each plantation has it’s story. The history of this one is similar yet unique to Destrehan plantation. The beauty of the area is true south Louisiana. Highly recommend a visit..

Our guide, Kathy, was very helpful, interesting & knowledgeable. Really helped us understand plantation life in the south. The buildings are immaculately maintained & furnished true to the period. Would highly recommend!! We went early on a Monday and were the only ones on our tour!!! Also the plantation was only 15 minutes from our KOA.

My husband & I enjoyed the tour of the Destrehan Plantation. The guide, Beverly, was knowledgeable as well as very personable. The house is set up nicely so you can really imagine life a couple hundred years ago. We liked that the tour also addressed the role indigenous people and Haitains played during the years that the plantations were in operation.
