Itinerary
Depart New Orleans from a convenient French Quarter pickup point and ride in a comfortable air-conditioned coach around Lake Pontchartrain and along the Mississippi down River Road. As the bustle of city life fades away, experience the peace and quiet of Louisiana swamp country. Reach the plantation by driving through the "Oak Alley" of giant trees that are more than 250 years old.

Tour the perfectly restored rooms of the 1839 Greek Revival mansion, which you may recognize from movies like Interview with a Vampire and Primary Colors. A costumed guide shares Oak Alley’s fascinating history, including stories of Creole plantation life before the Civil War. Spend some free time exploring the grounds, including an exhibit about the slaves who built the plantation and lived there.

Vacation

Big House tour was great. I especially enjoyed the privacy taken of pictures inside the house but outside the house, spectacular views of the plantation plus lots of history to be learned. Restaurant is also worth stopping into for lunch and must try deserts!!
