Experience the grandeur of New Orleans’ antebellum south on a half‐day tour of Oak Alley Plantation. Take a journey through time to the manicured estate and into the gorgeous home, built in 1839. View stunning architecture, oak‐lined esplanades, and enduring sugar cane fields while learning about the plantation’s fascinating – and often somber – histories from expert guides.
Experience a bygone era in one of the South's most beautiful settings - Oak Alley Plantation, built in 1839. Marvel at the unbelievable quarter-mile long alley of 28 magnificent Oak trees, each over 250 years old.
Perhaps the most photographed plantation ever, Oak Alley has been the setting for such motion pictures as "Interview with a Vampire", "Primary Colors" and the wedding of Bo and Hope from the daytime soap opera, "Days of our Lives".
Your guided Oak Valley Plantation tour will reveal the stories of the home and its history. View the Majestic Cypress Trees in Louisiana's swamps bordering the Mississippi River. You can purchase a snack, salad or sandwich in the Cafe and Ice Cream Parlor to enjoy at the picnic tables or aboard the coach (not included in price).

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!
