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.

A beautiful mansion and grounds that has been faithfully restored. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and had wonderful information about the house, grounds and what life in the 1800's was like. We went with a teenager who was not bored or anxious about leaving. We drove and it was about a 60 min very easy drive from New Orleans... More

This seems to be one of the more popular plantations to tour. The Oak tress the line the walk up to the house definitely are one of the highlights of the tour. Our guide Cindy was wonderful. She knew the details, was well-spoken and very gracious in her presentation and demeanor. Wish all guides were this as good as she... More

I stopped in to this plantation in the afternoon, after doing the Swamp Adventure tour in the morning (see other review). This place is amazing! I actually would've liked to have spent more time here but had a long drive ahead of me so did have to leave earlier than I wanted to. The tour of the mansion is done... More
