Well worth the afternoon we spent there. Booked tour through Grayline tours. Had a great bus driver who covered everything from historical to current events. Arrived at plantation. Staff were dressed in costumes for the era. Our guide Bob was knowledgeable and fun. If you are a ghost follower then check the Oak Alley website for paranormal events.

Don't get me wrong, the grounds and house were absolutely beautiful, but the tour was really disappointing. First of all, they charge $20 per person for the tour and the grounds. Yes, they're a private outfit, BUT I just looked at all the people around me and knew that this place was a total goldmine. Either way, it didn't live... More

This is a great tour. Docents dress in period attire that gives a genuine feel to this restored plantation. Wonderful guide, beautiful grounds. Well worth a visit!

We drove in from New Orleans and we were so happy that this was the plantation that we decided to visit. Our tour of the house was done by a guide that was knowledgeable but also funny. After the tour we walked back around to the front of the house and then strolled the path under the 300 year old... More

My wife and I loved the Southern Charm and History that was provided by this tour. We drove up from New Orleans and spent about 2 and 1/2 hours. The Tour Guide fully represented French Creole charm and did an excellent job explaining the history of the plantation. The grounds are well manicured, and the information provided in the slave...

We really enjoyed visiting this impressive plantation. The house tour guide that we had was very informative and you could tell that she really loved the house and the history of the plantation. I have visited several plantations in the North and South Carolina area but this one has one of the most beautiful grounds I have ever seen. I... More

Online pictures do not do this place justice! A visit is a must! The live oak trees lining up the walkway to the front door would have many stories to tell. We stayed in cottage 6 overnight. Everything was handled perfectly. We had ordered dinner prior to our arrival and it was perfect and delicious. Our evening stroll on the... More

This is what one imagines when you think of southern plantation mansions. You can almost picture Scarlett O'Hara sitting under the mightynOaks surrounded by her beaus. The grounds are spectacular, with a alle of 300 year old oaks to gather the breezes from the Mississippi, ushering the coolness into the home breeze area. Beautifully restored, grand, and definitely with spending... More
