Oak Alley has its absolutely gorgeous grounds and exterior to make it a 5 star place to visit. I was also very impressed by the way the enslaved people's lives were included in the tour of the main house, and of course, in the exhibits...More

An excellent example of a Pre-civil war Southern Plantation. A must-see. This plantation has been restored and preserved. Examples of slave quarters, a day in the life of a plantation, and, of course, the beautiful Oaks, planted prior to 1786, that lend their name to...More

Couldn't decide on which plantation to visit while in NOLA, so selected this one because of the beautiful oaks-wish we'd gone with another plantation. First of all it is a BUSY place! Tours have as many as 40 people in the groups, and you can't...More

There are many plantations to visit in Louisiana. This one is worth your time. The grounds are beautifully maintained. The main house and other building are also well presented. The plantation provides some interesting historical context for the property. Not too much. But just enough...More

If your not part of a tour, go to the office and get tickets- that’s what the tour guide did and handed to us. Simple stuff. Plenty to do. So no need to stand in a long line. Best, RS
