My wife and I attended the annual Christmas party and bonfire on Saturday. Absolutely loved it!! The food, the brass quartet...all on the front house grounds...the lighted oak trees...the bonfire on the levee...and even Santa Claus. It was truly a magical evening! My wife and I are looking to plan and go every year.

Lovely afternoon spent at Oak Alley Plantation. It is approx. 1 hr drive from New Orleans and worth the visit. We walked the grounds and took pictures. Then took the (new) tour of the slaves quarters. Stopped for a lunch break (onsite). Then did the mansion tour. The grounds are immaculate. The guides are all friendly and knowledgeable and seem...

Oak Alley is beautiful and authentic. Our tour guide was fun and informative. The bathrooms are very clean. The estate caffe has amazing New Orleans cakes and cookies which are very reasonably priced - totally recommend the cake. We all loved the experience... it felt like we were stepping back in time. The slave cabins were well maintained and very... More

We picked oak alley as we were only able to do 1 plantation visit. The views of the 300 year-old oaks did not disappoint. They were beautiful and the framed the house just as the photos show. We did a tour of the big house and was pleasantly surprised at the information the guide had on the original owners. The... More

The very first plantation we every visited. As soon as I saw it I had goose bumps I think I could have cried for some reason. It was breath taking. We are from Ohio so we were impressed they were planting flowers in late November. Grounds were well taken care off. Trees are just beyond words. Easy to find and... More

This is your basic plantation tour. Very nice, but nothing totally riveting. The tour guide was in period dress and was very easy to listen to. She was knowledgeable. Oaks were beautiful, for sure!

Bucket list number 7- check. I absolutely loved this place. My family wasn't thrilled with the long drive but once we experienced the entire place, they were sold too. The entire plantation is obviously grand and beautiful but I must say the people who work there- well- they take the place to a whole new level. They were absolutely fabulous.... More

We had troubles to go to Laura plantation where we paid to not even be able to do the tour so we decided to go to Oak Alley plantation where the staff was wonderful with us. The guide was very interesting and the oak alley is definitively splendid !

I had always wanted to visit Oak Alley Plantation. From seeing it on paranormal TV shows to seeing it in Interview With a Vampire and various other movies, it really held an air of mystique to me. I finally got the chance during my trip to New Orleans and the surrounding areas. This is well worth the hour and a... More

Ended up loving the visit. Je gardens are really unbelievable, with 300 years old oak trees that have no equals. The setting is well preserved (or reconstructed) and helps understand the tragic history behind the plantation. Highly recommended.
