Exceeded our expectations! It's the perfect amount of information without an overload and the tour guides are excellent! So knowledgeable and entertaining. You can move through the plantation at your own place, which was nice. The tree lined path is breathtaking.

Our guided tour was excellent. This was my first plantation tour and the history lesson was informative and afforded us a glimpse into a harsher reality for everyone.

Rented a car and drove 1-1.5 hours out of New Orleans. Beautiful setting and plantation house, with an informative tour inside the residence. The self-guided tour of the slave quarters showed the other side of plantation existence. Well worth the trip out.

This is a fabulous plantation. We had a 16 year old guide and she was funny, clever and had a very good knowledge of history. We thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful tour.

We recently stayed at Oak Alley Plantation in one of their lovely cottages with a fully furnished kitchen. I am an amateur photographer and it was nice to have 24-hour access to the grounds. Great tour guide at the Big House. The food in the restaurant was nice and we had a wonderful server by the name of Brittany. I... More

Oak Alley was a last minute addition to our vacation and I can say that it was a great one! The tour was amazing and the Mint Juleps were great.

We had the most awesome tour guide, Lacey, which made this a fun tour. It was obvious that she loved the property and she was so knowledgable. She was able to answer everyones questions. The alley of oaks is pretty amazing. They have a bar and a restaurant. The self guided tour of the slave cabins was interesting and informative.

Touring the grounds was magnificent, beautiful oak trees so much history.This property is simply breathtaking and historical-entering the big house was amazing, so much interesting original furniture and decor dating back over 200 hundred years. I love history especially NOLA- visiting the slave quarters and other building was fascinating- This is one tour I truly recommend

Our tour was with Cajun Tours and was part of a two plantation trip. Oak Alley is a non-creole plantation that because of its oak trees and proximity to the river was used by travelers as the mid-way point between Baton Rouge and New Orleans. Great tour with lots of info about the past. You can also stay here, but... More
