My brother told me I "had to go here". It was about a 50 mile drive for me, but I do love plantations. The oak trees here were amazing. I could have stayed all day just for that. The house tour was well done and informative. I enjoyed seeing the interior. I especially liked talking with the Confederate officer outside.... More

The plantation is beautiful, but the tour is awful!! Was supposed to be a 45 minute tour of the house, but was over an hour. The tour guide went on and on trying to be funny, but was not. They lock the doors, so you can't get off the tour if you're not happy. I'm not even sure how that... More

When people think of plantations, they think of "Tara" and/or "Oak Alley". This plantation has been featured countless times in TV shows, movies, music videos, etc. Upon arriving at the plantation, you quickly understand why. The grounds are majestic and quite beautiful. However, what happened here is quite sinister. Tour group sizes are large as this is a heavily visited... More

About an hour away from New Orleans it is a beautiful and refreshing site to visit. Away from the rutted and crowded streets of New Orleans, Oak Alley offers a peaceful leisurely way to spend the afternoon. We arrived around 9 and left about 12:30, and we still could have spent more time there. We had an excellent tour guide,... More

I visited Oak Alley Plantation in August 2014 in the afternoon. It was hot but the beautiful tall and old oak trees moderated the temperatures outside. The place is absolutely beautiful and well kept. I took a tour of the main house conducted by a gentleman with a Louisiana Cajun accent. He was very interesting to listen to and knew... More

This was an amazing experience. The grounds were emaculate and the staff were very friendly and knowledgable. I have been to many plantations and have taken many tours and this is still the best I have seen.

Probably the most beautiful and majestic entrance to a surviving antebellum home. It's very picturesque and scenic, both on the approach to the place and around the grounds. It has a marine vessel stop, and offers dining, home tours and overnight stays (in the outbuildings). If there only one home to stop at, this is it.

I very much enjoyed seeing this plantation home. I'm a sucker for these kinds of tours, though! The young lady leading the tour was dressed in period clothing and she was very knowledgeable about the history of the house as well as the history of the US and what was going on in the country during those times. It was... More
