You'll be driven to the Oak Alley Plantation House, located about an hour and a half outside the city of New orleans. This is one of the most magnificent Plantation tours because of the 28, evenly spaced, huge Oak Trees that go from the river road to the Plantation House. Built in 1837 using Greek Revival architecture, and restored in 1925, this house could to be straight out of the movie Gone with the Wind. In addition to antique farm equipment, the twenty-five acre grounds also feature a restaurant, blacksmith shop and a souvenir shop, of which you'll enjoy some free time to peruse at your leisure. It is a comprehensive plantation experience. The tour of the Oak Alley house is conducted by guides in authentic plantation style apparel. Walking is required for this tour. The distance from the plantation house to the restaurant and souvenir shop is about 1 block. There are benches along the path, shaded by the Oaks.

Worse bus I have ever ridden. Arrived at hotel half hour late, Drove maybe 5 blocks then we had to get off and wait for another bus. Seats were cramped, had to ask for a/c, couldn't hear driver talk. Every time bus hit pothole or bump we were thrown up and out of our seats. GET BETTER BUSES!
Excellent most knowable tour guide. Friendly staff that assist your needs. Most beautiful alley of majestic 300 to 600 hundred year old oak trees!! What more can one say.
Oak Alley Plantation was beautiful and worth the visit. Surprisingly the food in the gift shop was yummy.
However the transportation from New Orleans to the site was a joke. First a large party was picked up that had reserved tickets but had not paid. We spent 20 minutes parked as payment was sorted out which directly cut into our visit time at the plantation. Once on our way the tour driver would not point out points of interest along the way since some passengers in the back were loud.
On the return trip rather than driving directly back to the city we drove to meet another bus near a swamp tour drop off since some of the passengers were going on a different tour. Finally once back in the city the bus driver drove directly past our hotel since for some reason she was scheduled to drop off another passenger first. When stopped at a light a few blocks past the hotel we asked if she could just let us out and we would walk. Overall transportation was a disaster. I would be more likely to rent a car and drive myself.
Our guide's name is Rhett! He was great and knowledgeable! The plantation is just so beautiful and peaceful.
Wonderful tour of the house. Local tour bus company a little clunky in scheduling the return trip as we had to go far out of the way to drop off another tour
The place was beautiful
This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday. We booked this tour with a hotel pickup which was on time. Our driver was extremely friendly and gave us some useful information, facts and jokes on our ride. The plantation is as beautiful as the pictures describe. Coming from the Caribbean where we have plantations and sugar cane it was interesting to see the similar processes and tools used during the making of sugar. A very rewarding experience.
We had a great day at Oak Alley.Pick-up was at our hotel.The bus driver made the trip shorter with his humor.The estate is very beautiful and the tour of the house was very interesting because the docent was very knowledgeable of the house and it's period.Great tour!!
A visit to Oak Alley is better done by car. We spent more time getting there and back than we had on site. That's not to take away from Oak Alley. The tour of of the home is outstanding. However, there was not sufficient time to have lunch in the restaurant or tour the remainder of the grounds. I will need to go back a second time just to see the rest of the plantation.
Great, informative tour of the house - first owners and last. Our guide was wonderful - was not scripted, but very informative and just talked as if she were giving a history of her friends. This is such a beautiful place. Doesn't gloss over the horrors of slavery. You can walk the grounds at your leisure, have a mint julep, eat, etc. I'm so glad we went here.
