Our guide, Ken, was entertaining and knowledgeable. The Oak Alley Plantation guide explained the history and artifacts very well. The only downside was the Plantation's Deli--eat before you take the tour if possible.
How can you not visit a plantation when visiting New Orleans. This was the most popular one because this is where Interview with a Vampire was shot as well as Forrest Gump. The grounds were beautiful. The mansion the guides were dressed in period clothing and told us about the story of the family that owned the mansion. We saw the slave quarters and got to tour the grounds. Awesome tour for a first time visit to New Orleans!

This tour is as life like as you can get. Everything there is true examples on how hard the work was for everyone.
Our tour was amazing, the guide was so knowledgeable and made the bus ride seem short with all his info and stories along the way both to and from the plantation. The plantation itself was absolutely beautiful and the tour was great and really informative, I feel like we almost didn't have enough time to wander the property but the time we did have was great. I recommend getting a mint julep while there! Would definitely do this tour again!
Very interesting and informative tour. All of the guides and employees of the shops were helpful and polite. Highly recommend this tour.
The plantation was beautiful. A must see. We had a wonderful guide, Daniel. He gave us so much history on our way to the plantation. It was very interesting.
Ken, our driver/guide, was delightful. Funny, informative, and engaging. The plantation is beautiful and full of history and stories. The slave quarters are eye opening.
This was a great trip! The bus ride was very comfortable and enjoyable. Plenty of time to look around the grounds and get something to eat. Would highly recommend going this way.
Great tour from the bus driver to the house tour guides. The grounds are beautiful. One of the highlights of our trip. Would definitely would this trip again.
The tour was great. Everyone from our bus driver to every staff person at the plantation was friendly and very informative. If you want a look back at life during and after slavery this is a great opportunity to see it. My only complaint was the drive was definitely longer than was said on the site but it was not horrible because of info and scenery.
What an amazing place. Really enjoyed seeing this wonderful plantation. The bus driver gave us a running commentary about the history of New Orleans and the vicinity on the way there and back and we learned so.much. Loved it.
We LOVED this tour and would suggest anyone to visit. The guide was great and funny and the Oak Alley plantation was a sight to see for sure.
This was a wonderful tour, and our driver Kenneth is a big reason why.. He was very informative, told gret stories and was a good communicator.
The plantation tour itself was also very good. Our guide was very knowledgable. It would have been nice to have some of the grounds included in the tour.
Our guide, and I am sorry I forgot his name, was creative, informative, and funny. All around he made the trip extremely enjoyable. The while outing was exceptional
Beautiful place. I learned a lot about the plantation from the very knowledgeable guide.
Tour guide at the plantation was terrific and our bus tour guide, Kendrell from the tour operator was even better. I highly recommend this one.
Loved the tour to Oak Alley. I could have used more time to explore but it was worth the money.
Our tour of Oak Alley Plantation was outstanding! Gerald, our driver gave us interesting tidbits of information throughout the trip to and from the plantation, and he made the drive fun. The tour of the plantation was a wonderful step back in time and so interesting. I highly recommend this tour.
My client was thrilled with tour guide, highly recommends the tour.
Fabulous, great bus driver. He told us many stories of New Orleans and the surrounding area. Oak Alley Plantation is not to be missed.
Tour was great! Bus driver Gerald was very knowledgeable and provided the group with nonstop trivia and interesting facts about our destinations. Part of our group visited Laura Plantation and part visited Oak Alley and from what I saw Oak Alley is the awe-inspiring plantation to see. I liked that it looked Antebellum as opposed to Creole which seems plainer and not as enticing. Love Oak Alley and highly recommend the local tour operator - very professional and comfortable trip 1 hr 10 minutes from NOLA.
