Enjoy sweeping landscapes and extraordinary architecture at Oak Alley Plantation! One of the most incredible plantations...
We really enjoyed the tour. Very knowledgeable driver, funny and entertaining. The information given at the plantation was an eye opener and very emotional.
Booking the trip through tripshock was easy, convenient, and allowed us to save money off the price of the excursion. The driver - Brian - was great. We were picked up and dropped off on time. The tour itself was really informative. However, our group was combined with additional people once we arrived at the plantation, so about 30 of us toured the plantation together, and that made hearing the tour guide challenging at times. The guide would often start speaking before everyone could filter into room that she was describing. The guide was a great source if information - it just was logistically difficult to hear all of the info provided. We specifically chose a shorter tour (ie one plantation, half day), but in hindsight, we wish we would have had a bit more time to tour the grounds.
Oak alley, or any plantation tour, is definitely an experience I would recommend. And I would definitely book through tripshock again as the price savings and good customer service were worth it!
Enjoyed the big house and would love to see more about the slaves
