Oak Alley Plantation | Gray Line New Orleans

Oak Alley Plantation Tour

Feel the gentle breeze of the Mississippi River on a tour that takes you back in time!

You'll experience a bygone era in one of the South’s most intriguing 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 gave the plantation its name. 

Your guided tour will reveal the fascinating stories of the home and its history. Perhaps the most photographed plantation over the years, 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 setting, 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).  

Experience the following exhibits on 28 historic acres: Slavery at Oak Alley, East and West Gardens, Blacksmith Shop and Sugarcane Theater. 

Travel past Whitney, Evergreen, Felicity & St. Joseph Plantations, ghosts of the past that front the Mississippi River, where rich crops of sugar cane, cotton, and indigo from these fertile lands once traveled to far 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. 

Combine this tour with a swamp & bayou tour on the Plantation/Swamp Tour.
