    The plantation tour was very nice. What made this go over the top was our guide Bill Capo who is a lifelong resident of New Orleans and a former news caster. The educated information provided through the entire tour was the best. We learned so much. Take a tour with Bill if you can!

    Susan the tour guide for Grayline and Joe our bus driver were awesome!
    Susan explained so much history about New Orleans and the plantations.
    She also gave great recommendations for restaurants and attractions to visit while on New Orleans.

    Stunning house. Gave some information about how slaves were treated and where they stayed. Would have liked 15 more minutes there to see everything.

    We had a wonderful time at oak alley. The plantation house was so very beautiful. They also had a lovely girl telling us later about the slave conditions and there hard lives. The bus ride was long but the girl who was the tour guide was very interesting and knowledgeable. We would take it again.

    Oak alley was beautiful,driver drove fast going and was rude to passengers and bus had mechanical problems.

    When we showed up to take the tour that we purchased on the Grey Line manager told us the the noon tour was full and that she wasn’t responsible for tours purchased through third party sites. We asked for a refund but she said she hadn’t received the money from yet so she had no money to refund us. We accepted a later tour and sat in the sun and waited an hour for that tour. On the hour long bus ride there, the A/C only worked in half of the bus. It was miserable. Susan the tour guide’s solution was that she could “turn off the a/c all together.” We were like please don’t do that! She said we would get a new bus for the ride back but we didn’t. Also, something else that wasn’t mentioned is that on our trip to oak alley our bus drops off another group at a different plantation. Oak Alley is beautiful but don’t buy this tour!

    Enjoyed the plantation it was well maintained and beautful. We enjoyed how they do a comparison of life as a owner versus slave.

    Our tour guide Dionne was wonderful! Very knowledgeable about anything and everything New Orleans. This made the hour long bus ride more entertaining.

    Our bus driver Gerald was fantastic! He was so animated and took 2 different routes there and back. We got stuck in rush hour on the way back for about an extra 45mins (just plan for this with dinner reservations). The bus left at precisely 12pm and we got back about 5:20pm.
    The oak trees were everything I could hope for and more! It was crazy hot so we stopped on-site for a Mint Julep and Arnold Palmer with gator bites, all amazing!!

    The plantation is nice, and the tour is self-paced around the house. The house tour runs every 15 minutes or so. The tour covers the bus ride to and from and the fee to see the plantation. Everything else you need to provide. Would be nice to at least have water provided on the bus.
