The history is spellbinding, the oaks grand, the guides are great....especially the Grey Line driver "Sylvester". He should be on Broadway! I had him as driver on 2 tours. Very entertaining.
Oak alley is such a beautiful plantation and a definate to include on your list when visiting New Orleans. On the way to the plantation the bus driver told us all about the history of New Orleans as well. Great half day trip.
Everything about this tour was outstanding. Starting with our comfortable bus ride to the Oak Alley Plantation to our actual tour. This is a tour NOT to miss if you are in New Orleans.
This was fabulous. The house, the grounds, the buildings were all magnificent.
Even down to the two T Model Fords in the garage.
There was a cafe, restaurant and gift shop as well.
The hostess who took our tour through the house was very informative and was even dressed in the costume of the period. Highly recommended.
Real antebellum plantation. Forget Gone with the Wind, this is the real thing. A beautiful working sugarcane plantation. The view from the second floor balcony is spectacular. I felt like I had gone back in time.
This is a fantastic tour! Not only was the driver/tour moderator highly informative, but the docent at the Oak Alley Plantation was wonderful! She helped to bring the history of Oak Alley alive with her knowledge and insightful stories of the families who had once lived there. This was an awesome tour!
The bus ride to the plantation was filled with a monologue by a very knowledgeable driver/tour guide. We learned so much about the history of Louisiana, New Orleans, the plantations, the crops, the wildlife, and even recommendations for restaurants and other sights to see back at NOLA. The plantation tour was very nice, and the grounds were lovely. It was a leisurely visit, not rushed. We got to sit and drink some mint julips while taking in the beautiful view epitomized by the picture to the left. The woman guide at the home was intelligent, able to answer all kinds of questions about the history of plantations, the biographies of the owners and their families and the history of the sugar cane growing industry. Highly recommended.
Our tour to Oak Alley Plantations was such a beautiful place. We had a guide/coach driver that told the history all the way to the plantation. We had 2 hours at the plantation. With an inside tour of the house showing all the different people who had owned the plantation over the years. A young guide told us everything. Outside you could wonder through the oak trees. My husband found the motor museum with there cars they had at the time. There was a cafe where you could get light snacks or ice cream. Also a gift shop. We were then taken back into New Orleans telling us the history of the area on the way.
Amazed by the beauty of the plantation itself as well as the house. The guide was very good.
It was wonderful. The bus dirver/guinde was very knowledgeable, the scenery was beautiful, the plantation very well kept. Memoréis that i will treasure forever.
Probably the best tour I've ever taken and I've taken quite a few in different places.
Our driver/guide Sylvester was incredible.We came away knowing just about anything there is to know about NOLA and Louisiana. From the history of the people to life in the swamps to where to get the best dinner. It was a constant narration on our way to Oak Alley and back. Oak Alley itself was ok but being on the road with Sylvester was the best part. Do it!
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.
Wish we had more time to wander the plantation. By the time the tour was over, the bus was coming in 10 minutes. Wish we could have stayed an extra half hour.
