The plantation grounds and house are both magnificent examples of southern style frozen in time. The house has been lovingly restored and the team of tour guides are both passionate and highly knowledgable about the plantations history. The signature whisky and juniper iced drink is well with sampling (if your over 21). But most off all - the ally twenty... More

Words can't even begin to describe the feeling you get when you walk fourth to the antebellum home with the beautiful trees surrounding your presence and southern belles dressed in civil war period costumes greeting you at every angle. The guided tour of the plantation was with Katie, and my whole family agreed she was the best we have ever... More

I randomly chose Baton Rouge, LA for my vacation getaway this year. I was there 8/18/15 through 8/2415. I found that there were several tours for different places so I decided to take advantage of some of the history there.I toured Oak Alley Plantation Friday 8/21/15. It was so beautiful. The landscaping was fabulous and the tour guide Madison was... More

Staying overnight at Oak Alley is truly an experience that should be on everyone's bucket list. Priced comparable to local hotels, Oak Alley offers several onsite cabins with after hours access to the grounds. Although the restaurant is not available in the evening, there are several nearby. Or, order a pre-delivered meal that can be warmed up in the cabin.... More

Oak Alley is a must see when you visit New Orleans. The Tour was great and so were the Grounds. We enjoyed the History of the Plantation,as well as the beauty. The Ghost stories were very interesting.

We wanted to do a few different things on our vacation. Saw this Oak Alley Plantation on Trip Advisor and read the reviews. It was something we thought we would try. We visited a day in August and the Southern heat was out for sure. Bring plenty of water and dress cool with your walking shoes on. We toured the... More

Oak Alley is unbelievably beautiful. The property is well manicured and whatever restoration they did was well worth it. The house is well maintained and extrodinary is size. I can hardly imagine living in such a home. The path of oak trees leading up to the front of the house is breathtaking. The sheer sight of it rendered me speechless.... More

My daughter and i arrived in New Orleans and drove straight from the airport. The site is well organized and tours are offered conveniently on the hour and the half hour. The grounds are spacious and the Oak trees are impressive. The interpreter was well informed and friendly. If you want to visit the River Road plantations you have to... More
