Oak Alley Plantation Tour

Oak Alley PlantationFeel the gentle breeze of Southern hospitality on a tour that takes you back to the glory of the Old South!

You'll 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, and view the Majestic Cypress Trees in Louisiana’s swamps bordering the Mississippi River.

Your guided tour will reveal the fascinating stories of the home and its history. 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.

On your journey to this historic plantation, you'll also have the opportunity to enjoy a panoramic view of Lake Pontchartrain as you cross the Bonnet Carre Spillway (the flood outlet of the Mississippi River).”

Travel past Whitney, Evergreen, Felicity & St. Joseph Plantations, ghosts of the past that front the Mississippi River, where the fruits from these fertile lands travelled to ports of trade.

You can purchase a snack, salad or sandwich in the Plantation Café to enjoy at the picnic tables or aboard the coach (Cost is not included in tour price).


Note: Due to the home's historic nature, access to the second floor is by stairs only.
Walking the grounds is an integral part of this experience.
No video is allowed inside the plantation home.

Includes guided tour of plantation home and narrated motorcoach transportation.
