Visit Oak Alley Plantation, one of the South’s most famous and photographed plantations, on a tour down the River Road. And, do it without renting a car. Pass under a canopy of giant oak trees to tour the antebellum mansion and gardens with a costumed guide. Explore the plantation’s elegant yet somber history as you learn about the lives of former inhabitants, including slaves.
What to Expect
Depart New Orleans from a convenient French Quarter pickup point and ride in a comfortable air-conditioned coach around Lake Pontchartrain and along the Mississippi down River Road. As the bustle of city life fades away, experience the peace and quiet of Louisiana swamp country. Reach the plantation by driving through the "Oak Alley" of giant trees that are more than 250 years old.

Tour the perfectly restored rooms of the 1839 Greek Revival mansion, which you may recognize from movies like Interview with a Vampire and Primary Colors. A costumed guide shares Oak Alley’s fascinating history, including stories of Creole plantation life before the Civil War. Spend some free time exploring the grounds, including an exhibit about the slaves who built the plantation and lived there.

Southern living

Fantastic plantation, awesome oak trees line the entrance. Preserved slave cabins show plantation life. Well preserved plantation home with original portraits and some original pieces of furniture.

Took a Gray Line bus tour and had a great time. Our driver, (Jude, I believe), was witty and extremely knowledgeable. The plantation is stunning, but be prepared to get an idea of some of the true horror that was experienced here. The mansion tour...More

Went on the Oak Alley Plantation tour with GrayLine tours. The Plantation itself is amazing. An avenue of Oak Trees flanking the long drive up to the house. An informative guided tour of the house and a “slavery huts”exhibition showing what accommodation was given to...More
