This is a gorgeous plantation! We have been there before, but we love this historic place. Our tour guide had a thick Cajun accent which made understanding him a little difficult. We have enjoyed the tour more in the past. The guides appear to have...More

Located on the west bank of the Mississippi River, canopied path, created by a double row of 28 southern live oak trees. So beautiful and amazing views & ever relaxing just to absorb the beauty of it. I couldn't get enough!

If you have to visit ONE plantation in NOLA, visit Oak Alley. It is absolutely magnificent! It is not expensive and is accessible to all family members of any age. You will take some of the best pictures of you rtrip for sure.

No timed tickets. You might have to wait 20-30mins to tour the big house but there is plenty to explore while you wait. As a bonus you can do it while sipping a mint julep!
