What You Can Expect

Oak Alley Plantation Tour from New Orleans

Oak Alley Plantation

After hotel pickup in New Orleans, it's about a 1.5-hour drive to the Oak Alley Plantation, located among the Great River Road sugar plantations alongside the Mississippi River. 

On arrival, stroll under majestic, 300-year-old oak trees and take a 40-minute tour of the opulent mansion with a guide dressed in period costume. The Greek Revival architecture of the Big House was built in 1837 and later restored in 1925.

Wander the 25-acre (10-hectare) grounds at your own pace during your free time. Visit the blacksmith shop, snap photos of antique farm equipment, or peruse exhibits on slavery and the Civil War at your leisure. Grab lunch and beverages at the restaurant or cafe (own expense) before the return drive to New Orleans.

This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday. We booked this tour with a hotel pickup which was on time. Our driver was extremely friendly and gave us some useful information, facts and jokes on our ride. The plantation is as beautiful as the pictures describe. Coming from the Caribbean where we have plantations and sugar cane it was interesting to see the similar processes and tools used during the making of sugar. A very rewarding experience.

We had a great day at Oak Alley.Pick-up was at our hotel.The bus driver made the trip shorter with his humor.The estate is very beautiful and the tour of the house was very interesting because the docent was very knowledgeable of the house and it's period.Great tour!!

Great, informative tour of the house - first owners and last. Our guide was wonderful - was not scripted, but very informative and just talked as if she were giving a history of her friends. This is such a beautiful place. Doesn't gloss over the horrors of slavery. You can walk the grounds at your leisure, have a mint julep, eat, etc. I'm so glad we went here.

A visit to Oak Alley is better done by car. We spent more time getting there and back than we had on site. That's not to take away from Oak Alley. The tour of of the home is outstanding. However, there was not sufficient time to have lunch in the restaurant or tour the remainder of the grounds. I will need to go back a second time just to see the rest of the plantation.
