“So beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

What else can you say when you stroll to the end of the end of the sidewalk, and turn around to see the plantation through all of the stately old Oak trees. It's one of the sights a person must see with their own eyes. All of the grounds are manicured, and well kept. The restaurant was good, and everyone we came into contact with was really friendly. We did take the tour, which is $20 ish, and well worth it in my opinion. Our tour guide was awesome, and they know what they are talking about, and can answer questions, if you have them.

“My visit to Oak Alley”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

I have been a couple of times to this plantation, as one can't stop admiring the Oak Alley built from the entrance to the house. But I think 20 bucks is too much to pay for admission. We were three, and to spend 60 bucks it was not worth it. So we just parked, and went around to the entrance to have some great pics of the alley.

“Southern Comfort”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

This was a step back into American history. A time few of us today can understand. It was a beautiful home to visit and the landscape is gorgous. The long drive way of magestic oak trees is unforgettable.

“Beautiful, worth the time!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

We drove ourselves, easy to find and also went to the Laura Plantation as it is just down the road. Walked the grounds first. They are building replicas of the slave quarters(Laura Plantation has an original). The grounds and especially the old oaks are breathtaking! There are several videos to watch by the soldier's tent. The tour of the house is informative. Had a Mint Julip at the end of the tour then went to the restaurant for lunch. Had the seafood Augratin. Awesome desserts! Worth the trip.

“Recent visit to Oak Alley”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a truly beautiful property. My wife and I took a recent trip to NOLA and wanted to take a day trip out. Most of the property has been restored, but the pervious owner's bedroom has been preserved just the way she left it when she died. It was she and her husband that resurrected this property from the squalor it had fallen into and I think it is a wonderful tribute to her memory that they left it the way she left it. I think just about everyone has seen the Alley of Oaks in either a picture or a film, but it is truly a sight to behold from the upper gallery. They are currently rebuilding 6 of the original slave quarters and do not shy away from that part of their history the way that so many plantation restorations do.
