    Tour guide on the bus was very good and the guides at the plantation were excellent! The plantation was very interesting and beautiful grounds. Very enjoyable trip. The only negative is that it takes about an hour to get there.

    Beautiful plantation with a fun and knowledgeable staff. Dionne who works with Gray line was friendly and informative. She gave us a history lesson on New Orleans and its unique culture on the hour long journey to Oak Alley.

    Beautiful plantation at the mid stages of restoration. However, much of the history is either unknown or obscured by 100 yr old remodel. Guide gave a fragmented and opinionated presentation; research and efforts aimed at restoring the property as completely as possible to antebellum times, costumed interpreters, specific history related to the family and the plantation would greatly enrich this experience. Nice gift shop. Bar and restaurant on site.

    I really enjoyed the tour! The grounds were spectacular! The oak trees were gorgeous! Touring the big house was like traveling in time. Please try the mint julep.
