Reviews of Oak Alley Plantation Guided Tour With Transportation From The French Quarter

Oak Alley
Oak Alley Plantation was really cool! Super old house with a lot going on! Tour guides are very knowledgeable! The trees lining the walk way are magnificent! About 400 years old! They have slave houses set up like they used to be. Definitely a must see!

Rattling Coach, disinterested driver.
The old bus with noisy air conditioning rattled wearily to our destination and the return trip was worse, pothole jumping lifting us out of our seats several times. The driver was honest about having no interest in being a tour guide (or not allowed, I could not hear him all that well because the sound was not great, or affected by the noisy yet amazingly ineffective air conditioner. We did get delivered at destination and very nearly at drop off point (road repair affecting that so not blaming driver). So, please retire that bus. Other people paying the same had a much better experience with other busses and companies. The driver did not really work for me but if you want to be left to your own thoughts as you desperately cling to your seat, he might work for you.

Oak Alkey Plantation Tour
Overall our trip was Great.The bus driver was a tour guide so this made our ride to the Plantation fly by. We learned so much about new Orleans from him. So pleased that we took this tour..

Jude, the driver/guide was great
Very entertaining and informative best describe Jude. He made what could have been a boring bus ride an enjoyable time. Oak Alley is a must see, our guide had actually played there as a child so she was great and informative as well

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.

It was very disappointing because they didn't give us enough to look around
We had no time to look around the grounds only had a tour of the house. We should be entitled to a partial refund

Great time!
This was a great tour experience! It is true that the time at the plantation is a bit rushed, but if you are efficient, it is great. Oak Alley itself is beautiful and my group chose to wander the salve quarters (self-guided tour) as well. We learned a lot and had a fun time.

Had been led to believe that there was wheelchair service with Grayline for this trip based on chat with Tripshock service rep. Also called Grayline directly and told the same. Was not the case. My husband had to climb steps into the bus--extremely difficult for him. I applaud the bus driver for all his help in getting him on the bus despite this and off back in his wheelchair so that we could take the tour. I would rate higher if it weren't for this. Very stressful.

Oak Alley Plantation
It was an interesting tour of the plantation. The bus host was extremely informative and added a great deal to the overall experience. Only thing was that the bus window in front of our seats was loose and rattled the entire ride to and from the plantation.

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.

Kendrell was a great chauffeur on Gray Line Bus. Very personable. He did well dealing with A/C failure & accommodating the passengers. 2 hours is not enough time to see ever at the plantation, that was disappointing.
