If you are looking for a lesson in history and a nice excursion, Destrehen is not too far away and the guides are fantastic. Jeanette was very knowledgeable about the plantation history including details of the family and the slaves who worked there. She also did a great job of describing the surrounding history. We chose Destrehen because it was close to New Orleans (only about 25 minute drive) as compared to some of the other plantations. We were able to Uber there and the tour + wandering around took about 1.5 hours. The live oaks on site are also amazing.

The second plantation we did today and our tour guide, Beverley was fantastic. There were 12 people in our group and she remembered all of them throughout the tour. The house and grounds are very interesting. This one is a recommend as well.

The staff and historians at the plantation were very helpful and passionate about this time. It was a great tour both my 13 and 14 year old girls enjoyed as well.

My husband and I took a tour of Destrehan Plantation on 2/14. Being one of the older plantations, it was kept up very well. We had a knowledgeable guide who gave us an informative tour about the plantation and slavery. I liked this plantation because they kept the older, authentic, not so fancy furniture in the house. Another plus is they have an original document signed by Thomas Jefferson that you can view while there also.
