    Plantation Tour updated and corrected.

    The tour at Oak Alley has significantly improved. It now looks at all the residents of the plantation. The last time I came slaves or slavery were not mentioned. Now they have built 8 slave cabins with lots of information and replicas. The house tour includes information about the slaves.

    A historical gem

    America has some unfortunate histories associated with enslavement and oppression, but the Oak Alley plantation tour guides were quite respectful as they shared their knowledge of this controversial time period. The architectural restorations of the beautiful Oak Alley home to the simple slave dwellings are incredible. The oaks are massive and picturesque. Our bus guide, Daniel, is a native to New Orleans, and his historical knowledge and enthusiasm made the trip extra special. Our bus driver, Aldo, was super too. If you're ever in New Orleans, make time for this trip. They have a restaurant on location, which is not the case with other plantation tours. You won't regret the experience.
