Oak Alley Plantation Tour

Experience the rich history of the Oak Alley Plantation outside of New Orleans. Here, uncover the true stories of this sugar cane plantation as you walk around its beautiful and lush grounds. This New Orleans tour is perfect for history lovers and those who want to see what plantations were like long ago.

On your journey to this historic plantation, you'll 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.

Travel past Whitney, Evergreen, Felicity and 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 travelled to ports of trade.

Try to imagine what Southern hospitality was like back in the 1800s as you experience a bygone era in one of Louisiana's most beautiful settings here at the Oak Alley Plantation. The New Orleans Plantation tour will take you across the quarter-mile long alley of 28 beautiful oak trees and into the plantation's buildings. As seen in the movies, "Interview with a Vampire," and "Primary Colors," this plantation has kept its natural beauty through the decades.

View the majestic Cypress Trees in Louisiana's swamps right outside of the Oak Alley Plantation. You will have time on the tour to purchase a snack, sandwich, or ice-cream available on the plantation (not included). This historic landmark is the perfect New Orleans tour while visiting the city to experience true Louisiana culture.
