Oak Alley. Very impressive! The entire experience was just perfect! The tour company was organized and communicated well every step of the way. Our tour bus driver, KP, was absolutely the best! He was so accommodating, knowledgeable, and really had our enjoyment as his priority. Highly recommend! The plantation was beautiful and they did a great job telling the sides of both the owners’ and slaves’ perspective.

Our tour guide was Steven and he had a great sense of humor. The drive out to the plantation was about an hour but Steven spent some of the time giving us facts and stories about the areas we were passing which was very interesting. We went to Oak Alley and thought it was beautiful. The plantation tour wasn't as informative as I was hoping for but it was still great to see the house and the surrounding area. It's well worth doing one of the plantation tours to get out of the city and see some more of the surrounding area.

Our bus driver KP was great. He pointed out sights of interest on the way, and was on time both picking up and returning.
The time at the plantation was a bit short, but I had read that and knew to expect a quick turn around.
I appreciated the new emphasis on discussing both the lives of the enslaved people that made the plantation great, as well as the family. Wonderful trip with a good historical perspective of the times.

Just done the Oak Alley Plantation trip with Southern Style tours and found it very disappointing.

The plantation itself was beautiful with informative displays and I would highly recommend a visit.

The issue was with the transportation and the timings. We were told Hotel pickup was at 8am but actually it was nearer 8.30 with drop off at around 1.30. So around 5 hours in total with travel time of about an hour each way. However we were dropped off at the plantation house at 1015 and picked up at 1135 because our tour was combined with two other tours. 1 hour and 20 minutes is just not enough time to look around the house, grounds and exhibits.

The driver, although thoroughly amiable, seemed very disorganised, leaving the plantation without 2 guests who we had to return for.

We were a group of 5 and effectively paid $225 for the transport. It would have been far cheaper to hire a car for the day which would have given us a much longer time at the plantation

The long and short of it, bring a jacket and wear long pants! This is a critique of the drive to and from the plantation, which is what you are buying. The tours of the Plantation are provided by the plantation and are excellent. The bus driver there and back was great, full of stories and a solid driver. Here’s what killed it for us. It was a cold and rainy day and the AC was on in the bus. I asked a number of times to turn it down, and he did, but we and others were still very cold and to shy to make a fuss. What’s worse is it blows on the back of your neck and feet, which today were wet because of the rain. When we stepped out into the 70 degree air I wanted to kiss the sky! Such a relief. So if your don’t love cold AC when you are dressed for a warm day, bring fall weather clothes for the two hour round trip.
ONE MORE THING, and this is for the company to read. Please make people pay before they get on the bus! Making us wait while the driver hand types in the credit card information into his phone to collect payments for 20 minutes before we get started is just insulting and made us late to the tour. Everyone was grumbling. Other companies don’t do it this way. Lesson: Next time I’ll rent a car.

We visited Oak Alley on 11 January. Our tour guide/bus driver was Steven and he was very friendly, knowledgeable & professional. Great sense of humour too Steven. The day we did our tour was pouring with rain and he did the most amazing job of driving in these really wet conditions. Would recommend a visit to Oak Alley, it was a very cool place. Thank you.

We travelled from NOLA with Southern Style Transportation, our driver was funny and knowledgable.

At Oak Alley it was Rhett who showed us around the house. He was also knowledgable and could answr any questions we had.

There was also a girl giving a talk outside the slaves huts (I'm sorry I didn't catch her name). She was excellent, so passionate about the subject.

We were there about 2 hours and this was long enough, we covered everything we wanted to see in 2 hours.

Steven picked us up timely and after several other pickups, headed out for a 3-1-2020 morning tour of Oak Alley, with some folks dropped off at Laura Plantation for a tour of that plantation. Steven provided a nice history of the plantation era, and also shared some information about the wildlife prevalent in the bayou and swamp regions. The crowds were low in the morning and it was a perfect upper 60's, low 70's temperature. We so enjoyed this experience, and highly recommend the morning tour.

We had a marvelous tour at Laura Plantation. Our guide was informative and welcomed our questions and nothing was too much of a bother for him. This tour focuses on the history of the plantation over 4 generations including that of the owners and the West African peoole indentured to the plantation owners. Do not miss out on the museum to get a true understanding of life there over the last 300 years.

House and grounds were very interesting and honest of the time period. But the only “guide” was in the house. And only 2 hours of actual visit. The drive was a full hour each way plus the travel pickup/drop off of other travelers The driver was just that..a driver and no guide of New Orleans or Oak Alley.
