A powerful testimony to the rich history of the antebellum south, Oak Alley invites visitors to explore all facets of her plantation past. The Slavery at Oak Alley exhibit, Civil War exhibit, Sugarcane Theater and Big House offer an experience as compelling as the plantation’s 25 historic acres and 300 year old allee of oaks.

We chose Greyline Oak Alley Plantation. The driver was punctual, nice and informative. He shared a lot of New Orleans stories on the way to Oak Alley. We have enough time to take photos and wander around in Oak Alley. Great experience.

This home was one of many we toured. Once in ruins, it is worth noting how much work has been done to restore this lovely home. The tour was very informative and enjoyable.

I have seen Oak Alley Plantation in several movies and television shows but they do not do it justice. It is a must see when visiting the area. The home and grounds are fabulous.

A beautiful setting that does a decent job of telling the story of life in the South in the pre and post civil war era. Whitewashing our past does not provide context for obvious historical injustices. Our tour guide did a capable job of describing...More
