This was a substitute for LAURA plantation - because we were on tighter time frame to get rental car back to downtown New Orleans by 5 pm ... not disappointed though -offered a AAA discount too ! Realize that almost ALL of the plantation tours require that you pay the ' entrance/ guide ' tour fee in order to see... More

Simply stunning and in the late afternoon offers a spectacular view looking back onto the house with the tres and the main house sprawled with the afternoon sunset. The house is stunningly preserved and the tour guide offers an enthusiastic explanation of life gone by and the history of he house and grounds. Don't do a tour bus here make... More

We visited Oak Valley with a group booked through Tours by Isabelle. The tour of the house was very interesting and informative but my favorite part was strolling under the huge Oak trees. The house and grounds are beautiful which explains why many movies were filmed here.

Being greeted at the front door by a hoop-skirted tour guide named Katherine; our small group was welcomed into the front parlor. This beautifully restored plantation house and the original family were the majority of the topics Katherine explained to us. It is amazing some of the plantation houses passed through so many different lives, from being built, to a... More

We did this tour by booking through a group in New Orleans. They picked us up right in front our our hotel and drove us out to the plantation. The oak trees are magnificent; the pictures really don't do them justice. We got a tour of the house and the history of the plantation by a lady dressed in historical... More

We did the our and also stayed overnight and in cottage 9. We loved it, we ordered dinner as well and had it delivered upon our arrival. I had the Seafood Au Gratin and the wife has red beans and rice. Both very good! You do have to heat in the microwave but we enjoyed both meals. Our cottage was... More

The grounds were beautiful, the tour was only of the first floor and grounds as they renovating the 2nd floor. The tour felt short and our guide did not seem to be able to shorten the tour to only the 1st floor. The picturesque driveway was worth the drive to this plantation tour and also the restaurant was so good.... More

This plantation is different than the creole plantations such as Laura Plantation. The history behind the family that built and ran the plantation was very fascinating and sad as well. Definitely worth seeing as you get to go back in time and imagine life back then with its challenges. This does not take away the sadness of slavery but it... More
