What to Expect What to Expect

Experience a bygone era in one of the South's most beautiful settings - Oak Alley Plantation, built in 1839. Marvel at the unbelievable quarter-mile long alley of 28 magnificent Oak trees, each over 250 years old.
Perhaps the most photographed plantation ever, Oak Alley has been the setting for such motion pictures as "Interview with a Vampire", "Primary Colors" and the wedding of Bo and Hope from the daytime soap opera, "Days of our Lives".
Your guided Oak Valley Plantation tour will reveal the stories of the home and its history. View the Majestic Cypress Trees in Louisiana's swamps bordering the Mississippi River. You can purchase a snack, salad or sandwich in the Cafe and Ice Cream Parlor to enjoy at the picnic tables or aboard the coach (not included in price).

You will feel regret if you did not meet Erica, hope I put right name here. First time I learned the city history and some background very clearly from a tourist guide. The route we went there was picked to show particular scenery in this city. The time on the bus is easy and interesting...

My husband and I enjoyed the tour very much. The ride each way was about 1 hr and 15 min and was very pleasant, especially because of our tour guide Gerald. When we arrived at Oak Alley we were told we would have over 2 hours there including the tour, which would take about 40 minutes. We thought that would be too long a time to spend there, but we needed the time to explore the exhibit buildings, gift shop, snack bar, and tour the main house. Ann was our tour guide of the main house, and was extremely knowledgeable actually she knew the family that lived there, and spent time there as a young girl. The only negative about this tour was that we thought it would take 4 hours, but was actually about 5 hours. I would definitely recommend touring Oak Alley Plantation.

Really enjoyed the trip. It's about an hour by bus from New Orleans, which gives you about 2 hours on the estate which is about enough. The slavery exhibition is a bit sugar coated. Conditions and the lives of the slaves were miserable but they appear to have lived in a bit of a holiday camp. The house is lovely but the exhibits are a bit thin.

Overall an excellent tour. Our tour guide, Super Sandy, and driver, Diane, were great. Stopping at Whitney Plantation to let out another tour group cut our time at Oak Alley Plantation by about 30 minutes, but we were able to see everything.

This is a must see plantation home. The tour itself was wonderful. my wife and I learned so much about how plantation life was back in the pre Civil War days. Make sure to take your camera. they allow you snap as many photos as you want.

Wonderful look into the past antebellum era, lot of time to wander around by yourself and also take the tour of the house. The bus driver did a good job sharing interesting things during the 1 hour drive to the plantation.

In spite of the rain on the day of the tour, it was a very good way to spend the day. The rain did put a little damper on the tour, but overall it was great. The rain did shorten the walking of the grounds.

Beautiful Planation and the grounds were amazing and very interesting. Our bus driver was very informative on the trip there and back. The tour guide in the house did a wonderful job of speaking and telling us the story of the plantation. Glad we chose Viator tour.

Great trip to Oak Alley. The coach was air conditioned and comfortable and it was about a little over an hour drive to the plantation. The plantation was beautiful as promised. The only thing I would change is having a bit more time at the plantation to visit more of the grounds and the gift shop. We only had about two hours there and I am the type of person who likes to take a leisurely stroll to see everything.

Wonderful afternoon spent in the countryside. Beautiful plantation- very informative guided tour at the big house. Time on your own to explore the rest of the grounds. Our driver Kendall was fantastic. Very informative and quite funny. We learned a lot about New Orleans history from him. We had a great afternoon.
