Rent a car!! Don't go on an organized tour!! Its cheaper and you can go at your own pace. Grab a Mint Julep before your tour. Walk under the oaks when no one is around to get a great shot. Check out the slave quarters-they are not original, but interesting to get a glimpse of history.

We spent the better part of a day enjoying this beautiful plantation. The tours were great! Filled with wonderful information. The home is lovely. The grounds outstanding and the restaurant was very good as well.

The names says it all. The oaks are an amazing sight to behold. The tour was informative and the tour guides are all dressed in period clothing. The house and artifacts are wonderful. But again, the Live Oaks! Simply a must see! Head to Laura House after you enjoy a Mint Julep under the trees for a step into the... More

My wife and I attended the annual Christmas party and bonfire on Saturday. Absolutely loved it!! The food, the brass quartet...all on the front house grounds...the lighted oak trees...the bonfire on the levee...and even Santa Claus. It was truly a magical evening! My wife and I are looking to plan and go every year.

Lovely afternoon spent at Oak Alley Plantation. It is approx. 1 hr drive from New Orleans and worth the visit. We walked the grounds and took pictures. Then took the (new) tour of the slaves quarters. Stopped for a lunch break (onsite). Then did the mansion tour. The grounds are immaculate. The guides are all friendly and knowledgeable and seem...

Oak Alley is beautiful and authentic. Our tour guide was fun and informative. The bathrooms are very clean. The estate caffe has amazing New Orleans cakes and cookies which are very reasonably priced - totally recommend the cake. We all loved the experience... it felt like we were stepping back in time. The slave cabins were well maintained and very... More

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!
