Owner description: A powerful testimony to the rich history of the antebellum south, Oak Alley invites visitors to explore all facets of her plantation past. The Slavery at Oak Alley exhibit, Civil War exhibit, Sugarcane Theater and Big House offer an experience as compelling as the plantation’s 25 historic acres and 300 year old allee of oaks.

Our tour guide was very uninterested and not inspiring at all. You get the feeling that hey think that dressing up is enough effort. Just about all the information that we got on our tour was about which white people had lived in the mani house and in which room they died. Oh, and we were also informed the heat rises in Louisiana. Who would have thought? I would go to one of the less advertised an visited plantations that provide more of a background story and impression of what life on a plantation was like for all parties involved.

This was a very interesting tour and offered a lot of insight into the way of plantation life. The grounds are very impressive, especially the Oak Alley leading up to the front door.

The Restaurant at the plantation serves lovely food and has a small gift shop attached. Plenty of information provided and videos to watch. The house itself is simple but large and the guided tour isn't too long. The trees are the most amazing part of this plantation. absolutely incredible.

My wife and I visited the plantation and had breakfast there as well. Great tours, beautiful grounds. Take time to read the text panels, some very personal stories to experience.

This is truly one of the most beautiful places we have visited. I’m From a delicious breakfast to walking the grounds, reading in the slave quarters, watching a video on sugar cane production to touring the big house, we were transported in time. The oak trees and magnolias are just samples of God’s awesome creation!
