Beautiful but heartbreaking at the same time. I appreciate that there was a lot of information about the enslaved people. The bus had a video on the way there explaining more about Creole plantations which was interesting.

Alton is an outstanding bus driver and tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about the area and has an entertaining way of sharing his knowledge. Oak Alley Plantation is a well documented look at life on a sugar cane plantation.

Dewayne the driver/tourguide was great, he went to great lengths to make the trip enjoyable for the group. The plantation was beautiful and the guides friendly.

Visiting Oak Alley Plantation was a wonder addition to our New Orleans trip. The convenience of riding over on the bus and seeing the scenery without taking our own vehicle was great. The Plantation is beautifully maintained and guides were knowledgeable.

The bus driver, George, was a very pleasant and informative guy. Well done and thank you! I don’t like being forced to say more.

This was a great tour. Love that there was transportation from the French Quarter to Oak Alley since we didn’t have a way to get there ourselves from where we were staying. We wanted to get to Oak Alley but weren’t sure how. This tour was perfect! A convenient meet-up/drop-off spot and knowledgeable guides. Be prepared to be a bit sad about how the slaves lived but it is a great experience. The trees and gardens are gorgeous.

The guided tour of the plantation house and the view of Oak Alley and the house. Our bus driver/commentator, Joe, was also very helpful.

U must tour the house. The view of "Oak Alley" from upper porch is beautiful! The grounds are immaculate , the Mint Juleps just right!

Our driver was pleasant. The picture taking opportunities were ample. We were blessed with beautiful sunny day. I enjoyed best the effort to show the complexity of the brutality of the system with the need to keep alive the names of the enslaved people who lived there
