This was a great plantation to visit with lovely grounds. My friend and I went last week and it was very enjoyable with a great bus driver tour guide who was very informative, Also,the guide at Oak Alley gave a great tour.
What a great trip. Our driver was wonderful. He kept up a running commentary of what we were seeing along the route. The plantation was nice and the pralines were the best
FANTASTIC trip - fully enjoyed the bus ride out with the informative (and fun!) driver!! Oak Valley is beautiful and the guide there was great too - enjoyed the mint julips as well!!
It was a wonderful tour and our guide was fantastic! His stories made the bus ride fun.
If looking for an insight into plantation life and life in the south this tour is very well suited.
We are telling everyone what a GREAT tour this was, just wish we had been able to stay longer at the plantation for the amount of time it took us to get there.
The house was beautiful, but there was some confusion and most of our group was admitted, then about 6 of us were stopped and told we'd have to be in the next group. This meant waiting at the door for another 25 minutes. There were parts we didn't get to see, so disappointing. The driver's "banter" on the way back was annoying. I would have preferred to just sit quietly and enjoy the scenery.
The guide was knowledgeable and the plantation beautiful. I wish we had more time to explore the grounds and shops of the plantation. It seems that I spent whatever free time we were allowed in line at the bathroom.
The plantation was impressive as was the knowledge of the house tour guide. However the best part of the tour was the bus driver/guide. He was especially knowledgeable and presented the facts with an entertaining flair.
What a beautiful place! Only negative is the time limit at Oak Alley as so much to look at but couldn't get to it all before the bus heads off.
