I took my wife and mom here while we were visiting New Orleans. Although I didn't really have any interest in plantations, I enjoyed myself thoroughly and learned a great deal. This is simply the best historical tour on which I have ever been. The guides pay attention to deal, are almost impossible to stump, and do a great job of making the past of the plantation come alive by weaving its history with the history of the family who owned the plantation, as well as the slaves who worked on it. Laura is not the fanciest plantation you will visit if go down River Road, but it far away the most educational and entertaining. A must stop in the New Orleans area for anyone with even a passing interest in history.
