Booking/setup was easy via Trip Advisor. Brian, our driver, was efficient, polite and knew the city well. We made many stops to gather a full bus/van prior to leaving. We didn’t leave city for about an hour; not a big deal. Beautiful ride out to the plantation. Gorgeous structure and grounds. Tour was nice and very informative. We had the right balance of time; not too long or short. Nice cafe, gift shop, etc if needed. Very nice experience.

If our bus driver could receive a rating, I would give him a 5. He was awesome. He gave us great information about the city and what we were seeing out of our bus windows. I learned so much about the history of the city and some of the history of Katrina as well. We also had a lunch served at Oak Alley that was excellent. (I was surprised that sweet tea wasn't offered.) As to Oak Alley, it was just nothing to write home about. I do quite a bit of historical touring. The tour guide was friendly and answered our questions, it's just that I don't need to see "period furniture". It's ok if period pieces are needed to fill the house, but the fact that the whole house is "period" was disappointing. I did walk the grounds and see the graves of the last family that owned the plantation. The slave quarters have been rebuilt, but they are probably not that realistic. I was just very disappointed. There are other Plantations, I'd try one of them. I'd have given it a 2 if it wasn't for the bus driver and the lunch.

Let me start off by saying that Oak Alley is amazingly beautiful and you will not regret going. However, there are other ways to get to the plantation and I highly recommend you try driving yourself or using a different company.

We were an hour late leaving New Orleans, degraded by our driver, and one couple got kicked off the bus before we left because the company had miss-counted. During the drive, our driver (Barbara) was trying to give us information about the area, but she was far from knowledgeable. She also ran 2 red lights and crossed over a double yellow line to pass a truck. We were glad to get off the bus alive and to escape the endless talking about buffet items that she thought was relevant.

The worst part was that once we arrived at the plantation, she realized that half of the people on the bus were at the wrong location. Some were supposed to be at a different plantation and others were supposed to be at a swamp tour. This was the most unorganized company I have ever seen.

Cajun tours transported us and were over an hour late. Made our tour rushed and put a damper on the day for everyone on the bus. The Plantation guide was very well versed on history and well worth having.. but the Plantations were not impressive ... many on the tour were disappointed. My suggestion would be drive yourselves if possible and do it yourself. Your admission provides a guide if you want one! We paid $92 US each and most of that is for your transport ( which is very poorly organized )...Its $25 US to get into the Plantations ... so as I said..if you ca drive yourself!

In spite of hellish heat on a July Sunday, we decided to visit and walk around two plantations: Laura and Oak Alley. Good choices. Very interesting and certainly sobering, too. At Oak Alley we had to wait a bit long for our tour of the main house - sitting outside! Not pleasant, to say the least. Inside was air-conditioned to a good extent. The restaurant on the compound was full and waiting time long, thus we had to grab something from the snack bar. Not a lot and tasteful things.

Our bus driver was very talkative, not really that interesting though. It was a long way out of New Orleans but a scenic enough trip. The plantation itself was quite interesting, a short tour through the big house.

We do not own or operate the tour of the house. We only provide safe and comfortable ground service to Oak Alley plantation, provide the entrance fee and make sure that you know when where and how to do your tour. The trip is long, 70 miles one way. We do apologize for the long trip but that is the nature of that plantation.

It's a beautiful place. The transportation was correct. The driver was a nice person; he gave us information about the places we were getting through. But I can't understand why it was so difficult to communicate the piking-up point: it was impossible to set it in the web application form. I had to phone to twice, once to to set the point and another time to confirm it.

The worst: the explanations at the plantation were very poor. It was better to read the booklet. The person in charge of explanations was not kind. The price is not worth it.

The visit to the Oak Valley Plantation was a good experience. The organization running the plantation does a good job. However the tour company that took us to the plantation and back was ok. It didnt seem like a personal experience. The driver picked us up around 850am in addition to other passengers at other hotels. He took us there and told us our tour time and when to come back to the bus. We spent a total of 2 hours at the plantation with the 30 tour included. The driver stopped by for 10 seconds to show us another plantation where they shot a few movies. The bus ride was uncomfortable. The bus company needs to check the shocks on their buses and service the AC (it got hot on the way back to the French quarter). In the future I would probably rent a car and drive to the plantation myself and have a little more time and eat at the restaurant. I would probably use this company in the future but not for the plantation tour.

Beautiful house- with a well done guided tour. Definitely have a mint julep at the end! The oaks are gorgeous. They do a good job trying to cover both the plantation owners and slaves in the experience . The sugar cane movie offered on the grounds was hilarious (“sugar is natural and healthy”), but also informative. I highly recommend this plantation tour.
