  • If you are in NOLA and have time for only one plantation, I would choose this one. It’s a very good combination of history, slave life, plantation owner life, good view of the house and other building...  more »
  • Our docent, Frank, was amazing! His knowledge of the history of the Destrehan Plantation and the local, national, and international influences on it, were fascinating and enlightening.  more »
  • I've seen lots of plantations in my life, and there was really nothing to make this one stand out. There are some beautiful live oaks on the property. The tour was just average, and I felt like we ove...  more »

  • This was one of the best historical tours we've done. There is a lot of rich history about the area that revolves around the house and property. The tour is worth the price. They have a little scavenger hunt paper for the kids to help keep them interested during the tour, which my kids enjoyed. Also lots of fun and unique gift items in the gift shop. It was probably one of our favorite outings this trip so far.
  • Good plantation experience very close to New Orleans. Our guide Jim did a great job telling us all about the history of the house, grounds, and family. Loved getting to see the plantation's document with Thomas Jefferson's signature on it! Walking the grounds was nice. Rachel gave us a wonderful talk about sugar cane to sugar production. The guide in the Education Center gave a very enlightening talk on the Slave Revolt of 1811. At $20 this was a very worthwhile half day outing.
  • We visited while in the area. There was a wedding taking place so we could not visit the barn areas, and we had just missed the tour of the house. We did look through the grounds and the gift shop and had a pleasant time looking around. Prices were good, but on the high side.
  • Fantastic! We really enjoyed the tour and time spent there. The people were great everywhere. I would recommend it.
  • Great place to visit. Jim was a great tour guide. And Bill showed is how to make walls out of moss and mud. Pretty cool letter from Thomas Jefferson.
