I visited the Oak Alley plantation a couple of weeks ago with Isabelle's tours. The tour included this plantation, an old Creole plantation, Laura's, and an air-boat ride on the bayou where we saw two huge alligators. It was a fun day and the plantations are well worth the trip. Oak Alley is picture perfect and looks like it is... More

My family recently visited Oak Alley for the very first time. I am a history buff and I enjoy touring our American History. This plantation is really interesting and was not a disappointment to us. We decided to tour the "Big House" by taking the very first tour of the morning. Our tour guide "Katie" was dressed in period clothing... More

Over the last several of years I have visited Oak Alley Plantation on numerous occasions and never get tired of walking around the home, the grounds and allowing my imagination run wild. For the "haves" it must have been an incredibly opulent life style, for the "have-nots" not so much. I have also spent time viewing many of the other... More

we loved the place. very educative. our guide was however very difficult to understand so the tour gave us only limited information. took a lot of great pictures though and learned a lot about how the actual life on a plantation used to be.

Wow this plantation was beautiful. The mansion tour was great. The girls are all in customs and it takes you back to that time in history. The staff is all great. The oak trees are breath taking! They have a little souvenir shop, a great place to spend the day relaxing.

We visited this plantation in July 2014. We had a great tour guide for our tour of the home who shared many stories about the history of the home and it's previous owners. There are interesting exhibits showing what slave quarters would have looked like. The property is landscaped with many flowers, trees and two rows of 300 year old... More

I agree with most of the previous reviews. Amazing historical grounds and very interesting Big House history. However, I also want to point out that Oak Alley has a slave exhibit that was very thoughtfully prepared. They also has a very good restaurant.

We visited this plantation on this last day of our trip to the New Orleans area, and it was perhaps the highlight of the entire trip. The property is absolutely gorgeous, and the history of the grounds and house is fascinating. This is a must-do if in the NOLA area!

This was such an awe inspiring trip, the home was so lovely and the grounds were breathtaking, i was lucky enough to get to stay here for the night and had the entire grounds to myself. I just imagined what it must have been in its day. I highly recommend visiting here, you will not be disappointed. The highlight was... More

I recently visited Oak Alley for the 2nd time in 10 years and enjoyed my visit. Katy, our tour guide, made the visit interesting and throughly did a first rate job in telling the history and making us feel like we were in the 1800's. It is absolutely beautiful and I am giving it a five star rating. The only... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nowhere else in the south will you find such a spectacular setting!The story of Oak Alley Plantation began with a vision, an alley of 28 oaks later mirrored by a manor with 28 columns. In the early 1700’s an unknown settler planted twenty-eight evenly spaced oak trees in two rows leading from his humble cottage toward the mighty Mississippi River. Over a decade later, an aristocrat by name of Jacques Telephores Roman lured his New Orleans socialite bride to leave her city live life, to achieve his dream of becoming a sugar king. In 1839, Jacques and Celina built this spectacular mansion, leaving the Roman legacy for us to enjoy today. Come and enjoy her beauty and dream of her rich past. Explore 25 acres of history and romance, regret and rebirth, tragedy and triumph. Enjoy a Mint Julep or refreshing lemonade while strolling these historic grounds and see the legacies left by the Romans, the Stewarts and those in between. Step back in antebellum elegance and tour the Big House with a guide in period dress. And witness the reconstructed slave quarters to understand the lives of the workers whose labor made plantation life and its luxuries possible. Visit the Civil War Interpretive Exhibit which consists of a commanding officer's tent, staffed most days by one of our three Civil War interpreters. These interpreters, along with our video kiosk, will allow visitors to understand one of the most crucial periods in this nation's history. Enjoy small group discussions with one of our interpreters who are available to answer your specific questions.Dine with us and savor flavorful Cajun & Creole dishes in our Restaurant or grab a light lunch or ice cream in our Café. Browse our impressive Gift Shop. Spend a tranquil evening in one of our 19th century old cottages. Even plan a wedding, corporate or special event. There is just so much to experience at Oak Alley!  ... more   less
