We started our adventure here with breakfast in their restaurant, it was delicious. My friend had Pain Perdue and I had the southern breakfast with grits and bacon, both were excellent. We then walked the grounds and learned the history of the plantation. This plantation was also used in the film Interview with a Vampire, Brad Pitt's tortured vampire character... More

Interesting home; quite lovely. The main house is fine; the rest of the plantation is not a good replica as to how slaves lived. The slave quarters were so nice I would have stayed there. It is a whitewashed view of slavery.

We stayed overnight at Oak Alley Plantation (have reviewed this separately). The tour of the 'big house' was great. The ladies (tour guides) were all dressed in period costume and the tour itself was very informative, focusing on the lives of the previous owners and the uses of the rooms and the items in them. It was a nice slice... More

The photos of Oak Alley do not do it justice. The home and the trees are breathtaking. We rented a car in New Orleans and made the easy hour long drive out to the plantation. There are several in the area so we began with Oak Alley first. I would advise to arrive early to avoid crowds. The "big house"... More

My boyfriend and I visited Oak Alley the same day we visited Houmas House -- 2/8/17 -- and the grounds were absolutely spectacular. The house was wonderful as well, though most of it is roped off and you have to look through doorways to see the various items. Our tour guide was Samuel, who was very knowledgeable about the house... More

We toured this beautifully restored plantation home and grounds, and stayed overnight in one of the quaint cottages. Our entire visit was exceptional. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the plantation and its owners. The grounds were well maintained for winter. The Oak Alley was in and of itself incredibly beautiful. This tour is a must... More
