Overview
More
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.

Although this plantation is in excellent shape, the guides here are not near as good as at the Laura plantation.

I would guess you wouldn't want to miss this one because the house and grounds are beautiful and you want to get the pictures but go on the off season and not on school holidays. The line to take the tour was over 1 hour,...More

The grounds are beautiful and the 40 minute tour is informative and full of history! Definitely treat yourself to a mint julip as well and for those who don't drink alcohol they have a nonalcoholic version too!

The grounds are spectacular with 300 year old oaks and the house is amazing. Our tour guide Brock was very knowledgeable. It was a fantastic plantation to visit.

Gumbo and julep were good. The cake was extremely sweet, on the other hand, and almost certain was made with corn syrup. Overall meal didn't taste fresh. Very friendly and accomodating staff though.

The grounds are amazing, truly. I found the actual tour of the big house to be a little bland, really didn't find it super interesting from a historical perspective. If you want more history, I'd check out a different plantation.

My group enjoyed our visit to Oak Alley. It is a gorgeous property with some truly stunning trees. However, it very expensive for the quality of the tour and really seems to be commercialized at this point. There wasn't a lot of character about the...More

I wish I could help you with this question but I honestly don’t know. I’m sure if they don’t personally accommodate then they may be able to refer you to a college where students may be eager to help.

We went in January 2017. the weather was beautiful! almost nobody there. We stayed at one of the cabins on the grounds and we walked around at night, we were the only people there. no crowd at all! It was perfect.
