Nowhere else in the south will you find such a spectacular setting! Come see history and beauty in one incredible experience.
This is a sweeping gone with the wind style plantation. Gorgeous trees and grounds. Quarters where they kept slaves and the history.
The tour was great. Lots to see.
Don't do an all day tour - it gets repetitive. A ways out of town you ride in a van to get there. Just do one or two of the big plantations and you'll get the history and it will be super cool.
Great tour, we took the history of slavery tour as well. Very knowledgeable guide.
Amazing property and tour. The Live Oaks in front of the main house are spectacular.
This place is beautiful and definitely worth seeing. The tours are great and worth doing.
gorgeous plantation with lots of history... No need to buy a ticket if you aren't going to do the main house tour
This is the classic plantation experience you see on tv and the movies.
Altj is the best
Really good tour. And really good mint julep, post-tour. Can't wait to come back
Do the tour as it's fascinating. Nice to see them highlight the human cost of the slavery used to build the plantation in the exhibits, rather than just brush it aside.
Gorgeous you seriously have to see this place and take a ton of pics
Don't miss the 2 classic Ford Model A 's in the garage...
The lemon julips are delightful.
Most plantations are tour only... And cost around $20
Friendly staff, great tour, a lot of history, a BEAUTIFUL location. Spend a few hours here, it's fantastic.

It's cute that the people giving the tours are dressed up. The mansion is nice inside but the real treat is the view of the Oak trees leading to the house. You can drive around and see that for free.
Day 3 of Antebellum South: Touring the historic plantation and its beautiful grounds under the natural wonder of 300-year-old oak trees while learning about the history of this Southern estate.
Believed to be haunted by Louise Roman the daughter of the man who had the home built in the 1830's. She is dressed all in black and can be seen in the master bedroom or the widow's walk.
Get your mint julep before the tour and end it drunk.
Mint julep, very sweet
As a local I'm here often. I'm known by a few of the tour guides. Needless to say I love the history. The tour and the grounds. I can never have enough pics of the grounds. Aim for the interesting!
The gift shop sells slave teeth!
That awkward moment when your tour guide is still fighting the Civil War...like build a bridge
Gorgeous and worth the trip! If they didn't talk about slavery before, they certainly do now. In fact, our guide reiterated the fact that this entire place was built on the back of slaves many times.
It is a typical tourist trap. The tour guides are inexperienced and have nothing interesting to say. Take a photo from the road of beautiful oak alley and go to Laura plantation instead!
Recommend that if you come by car, try to arrive early. Hours between 9am to 10:30am are peaceful, with only a modest number of visitors, often by yourself.
So beautiful. The Mint Juleps are to die for!
Oak Alley Plantation is now open! Power is restored, the grounds are cleaned up, and Oak Alley Plantation is 100% open for fun! Beginning Monday, we open for our regular business hours, 9am to 5pm.

Beautiful, but the tour is kind of insulting. No real history unless you are super interested in how to make feather mattresses or run dinner parties. Didn't even say the word slavery.Very sanitized.
The tour literally whitewashes the history of slavery that is so key to understanding Plantation life. If you're interested in historical accuracy, go to Laura Plantation down the road.
If the place looks familiar, its where Brad Pitt's character, Louis, starts out in "Interview with a Vampire."
We love stepping back in time on a Plantation country day trip
The grounds are beautiful! Plenty to see without getting a ticket.
Oak Alley Plantation Restaurant Chef's Lunch Special for Tuesday & Wednesday is Sicilian Style Pork Chops! Yuuumm!!!!
It is gorgeous out here today!
Plenty of trees, very cool.
Try a mint julep!
Don't come here unprepared without ketchup.
A beautiful Southern Plantation which is used as location for movies and tv series
Restraunt was sub par. Low quality food and service. Stay away from the etoufee.
The restaurant isn't that great. The crawfish didn't taste fresh... Also it was a bit pricey for the quality.
On your next visit, take time to enjoy the restaurant and sample some plantation cooking.
Gorgeous scenery ...take many photos.
