    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

    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

    If the plantation is very busy, it sometimes takes longer for them to do the tours of the house. We apologize that it took longer in the house on your visit but that is out of our control. Please don't hesitate to contact me at guestexperiences.com

    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.

    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.

    Lovely Day

    This trip was great and my group of 10 enjoyed it! The pickup location was easy to find and everything went smoothly. Our only complaint would be that the bus ride was too long, but there's not much you can do about that. Our bus driver was awesome. He definitely knows his stuff and you can tell that he loves his job. We lucked out with the weather and had a beautiful day to explore the grounds of Oak Alley. Our tour guide in the house was wonderful too. All around this was a fantastic trip and I would recommend this to others.

    Nothing Quite Like It!

    I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and grounds at Oak Alley. Other than the redwoods in CA, the Oaks here are majestic and unique. The Pros: Well manicured grounds, friendly people, very spaced out, great lunch, excellent tour guides and historical accounts. The Cons: Would have liked to stay longer! I highly recommend visiting Oak Alley and DON'T FORGET YOUR CAMERA!
