This was a great tour and the tour guide was wonderful. The tour was small and we were able to ask many question and our guide was in full costume of the era.

We took in the Oak Alley Plantation as a part of our Tour by Isabelle. The plantation home and grounds a stunning and well looked after. The recent addition of the slaves quarters helps to complete the experience. The guides (ours was Hannah) are very friendly and informative. The restaurant served us a lovely traditional Louisiana meal and the gift... More

My mother and I stayed at Oak Alley in a cottage for 2 nights. It was so fun! The cottage was nice,roomy and clean! We had #4. It felt like staying at Grandma's. The tour isn't included in the cottage rate, but we enjoyed it! It's simply beautiful! Adrian was our tour guide and she was a lot of fun!

Drove here to check out the plantation and we all very impressed. The trees are amazing with the house in the background. The tour was very informative.

It is an excellent and interesting tour. The evil of slavery is really brought home. From the relative opulence of the plantation owners house to the squalid conditions of the slaves and the horrendous manner in which they were treated. There are many detailed, specific and moving stories of the individual slaves who endured their lives on this plantation.

We took the Cajun tours to get here from New Orleans. It is a beautiful plantation. Hannah was our guide and was wonderful. She had a true passion for truth place which showed in her tour. Enjoyed the tour only complaint the gift store is very expensive. Went Laura plantation the same day items were a lot less there

Beautiful home! Guides were dressed time period clothing which was nice. The grounds were immaculate! The only fault I could find was far too little history was given to this majestic place.

It was $20.00 to get in, Lacey our guide was funny, full of interesting information and intelligent conversation. She recommended stopping by the Generals tent, what an interesting man, full of knowledge and local information on the war of the states. There are grounds to explore after the house, slave quarters and a small coffee shop. It's a good way... More

Yes, the oaks are gorgeous and the story behind them is great, but Oak Alley is more than that! Beautful historic home, and some darn good mint juleps! Don't forget your camera!

This plantation is all about the trees. The house is worthy of a. Is it, and the tour is very good. We learned a lot, but at the end of the tour when the guide opens up the doors to the balcony on the second floor of the house, the view of the old oak trees that have grown together... More
