    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Oak Alley Plantation, 3645 Highway 18, Vacherie, LA 70090-7079

    Oak Alley plantation gets its name from the spectacular quarter mile tunnel of 28 oak trees that frame the driveway as you approach. Built in 1839 and facing the Mississippi River, the magnificent entrance to Oak Alley Plantation makes it a “Must See” destination on everyone’s list of historic Louisiana sites. This plantation was originally named Bon Séjour (“pleasant sojourn”), but became known as Oak Alley when riverboat passengers floating by marveled at the double row of giant oak trees leading to the mansion. Thanks to its classic appearance and beautiful restoration, Oak Alley Plantation has been featured in a number of movies and TV series, including the movie “Interview with a Vampire,” and Beyonce’s “Deja Vu” music video.

    During your tour, you’ll hear from expert guides in period dress, as they recount the factual history of the mansion and immerse you in another time. The tour will bring you through several interior rooms of the plantation, as well as upstairs, where you’ll step outside to take in a breathtaking view of the centuries-old Oak trees and surrounding grounds.

    After your tour, we’ll give you some time to explore the vast grounds surrounding Oak Alley, which include fascinating exhibits, recreated slave quarters, and of course, countless views of the Oaks themselves that have made this plantation famous. Oak Alley plantation also features a restaurant serving traditional southern fare, ready-made sandwiches and snacks, gift shop, and on-site bar staff ready to whip up a refreshing mint julep.

    We had a nice time on this trip. The building and grounds are lovely. Transport was efficient - not luxury but fine.

    The pick-up at our hotel was about 9:00AM but it varies by your pick-up site. I would contact Cajun Encounters office to see what you could arrange. Hope this is helpful.
