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.

This place is really well organised and really nicely organised. It is a peaceful place with beautiful gardens and is well maintained. The tour of the house was smoothly operated and we learnt a lot about the wealthy owners and their good & bad management of the estate. Not too much information on their treatment of their slaves? We had... More

I enjoyed the trip here. The house itself is well preserved. the guide was very knowledgeable and made it interesting. If you cant manage to climb the upstairs, they will sit you in a little room with an ipad with a guided tour. A nice touch.

This is the quintessential southern plantation. The "oak alley" leading up the path to the house truly takes your breath away. Walking among them takes you back in time. The house has been well preserved to where you can truly see how one lived in a house such as this. The cabins behind the house tell an important part of... More

So much to see & the oak lined lane up to the house makes for a picture perfect plantation home from both inside & outside the home. Lots of little facts & the guides were great!

No trip to The Big Easy is complete without a trip to a Southern slave plantation. Although the history is laced with some sadness and injustice, the 'Big House' and its architecture is worth seeing.

we took a tour bus to get to the plantation. We had lunch at the restaurant right in front of the plantation. The food was very good and the mint julep excellent. We took the guided tour thru the house, which was very informative. The view from the balcony is just breath taking these old trees are so pretty and... More

Seeing the three hundred year old live oak trees, alone, is worth the trip to the plantation. Seeing the difference between how the owners lived and their slaves lived is something everyone should experience. These will be lasting memories for me, even after I have forgotten the mint julep and the great food at the restaurant.

I was on a Celebrity Equinox Cruise which stops 3 days in New Orleans for the Jazz Fest. First, I will say that Celebrity Cruise Lines is excellent. The cruise had exceptional food, service, cleanliness, and entertainment. One of the excursions was a trip to Oak Alley Plantation. The story of the plantation's history, the location, and the guided tour... More

The weather was pleasant and sunny when I was there last Monday. It's my first visit to a plantation, so I didn't know what to expect. The exhibitions and the big house tour were both educational and interesting. The oak trees and gardens were beautiful. It's very relaxing to walk on the tree lined alleys. We took lots of pictures.... More
