It's a beautiful place but it didn't feel very authentic. Would like to see more artifacts from actual place, real slave cabin? More than 2 actual pieces of furniture from house. The setting and guides are wonderful.

Visited Oak Alley with the American Queen Steamboat Cruise and it was a real treat. The plantation is gorgeous and the docents made the trip fun and informative. The mansion is beautiful, as are the grounds. We had a delightful Mint Julep and there is a wonderful restaurant and gift shop on the property as well.

This plantation was just breath taking. To the engenious ideas on how to cool off in the summer to why the grounds are layed out the way they are, is just so interesting. The guides were charming and very patient with the guests. (crying baby and all) The history is very well told and absolutely captivating. Totally worth the price.... More

We had a lovely tour guide who lead us through the house and history of Oak Alley Planation. It was a great price for everything you get to see. I would recommend it for adults but maybe not for young children as there isn't much interaction for children.

My husband and I (recent college grads) visited the NOLA area in Spring 2015 to tour its areas of historical charm. We knew we wanted to visit Oak Alley, which was about an hour away from our hotel in NOLA—but extremely worth it! We both said it was one of the highlights of the trip. The day we visited Oak...
