Normally when I go to New Orleans I don't leave the French quarter, but the last time me went we took another couple we've known since college. So we had to do things the girls wanted to do, and I'm glad we did. This was actually my favorite part of that trip. I like the history there, and it's very... More

We enjoyed our tour of Oak Alley plantation. The grounds are self-touring, the restaurant food is delicious and the house tour was very informative.

My family and I decided to this wonderfully stately home. I've read numerous histories. We walked up and down both sides of the property. Thankful it was shaded as we chose a hot/humid day to visit. The tour of the main house consists of two of three floors complete with air conditioning. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly.... More

The tickets to visit this place are really expensive but there you can see, learn and live a big part of Louisiana and United States history. The oaks are amazing and you can take really good photos there.

First of all this is NOT within The city limits you will either have to Rent-A-Car and pay the admission fee of $22 per person or sign up for a tour that will pick you up at the hotel and take you back to the plantation. It really is an interesting way to spend today and would highly recommend this... More

This is a wonderful guided tour of a beautiful, stately plantation home. Our guide seemed a bit new - his speech seemed a little unnatural and too rehearsed but I have to give him credit for his performance as he also seemed almost so very young. He was certainly knowledgeable and kept a good pace throughout the tour. There are... More

We visited Oak Alley Plantation on a weekday morning, starting with a breakfast in their restaurant cafe. Although the menu was small, the food was to die for. We then joined the tour of the house which was interesting and well planned. We spent the morning browsing the plantation grounds and the beautiful alley. The place is so gorgeous and... More

Our 2nd time here with our kids. It is such an amazing home and the tour gives you a real look into plantation life years ago. And those trees...breathtaking.

My family visited the Oak Alley Plantation yesterday (we drove there - easy enough to find using a GPS) and got a guided tour through the mansion (which comes with the admission ticket). Our guide was well-versed in the history of the house and we got to visit each room as the guide entertained us with stories about the families... More
