Itinerary

Feel the gentle breeze of Southern hospitality on a tour that takes you back to the glory of the Old South!

Experience a bygone era in one of the South’s most beautiful settings - Oak Alley Plantation, built in 1839. Marvel at the unbelievable view of a quarter-mile long alley of 28 magnificent Oak trees, each over 250 years old. Perhaps the most photographed plantation ever, Oak Alley has been the setting for such motion pictures as "Interview with a Vampire", "Primary Colors" and the wedding of Bo and Hope from the daytime soap opera, "Days of our Lives". Your guided tour will reveal the fascinating stories of the home and its history. View the Majestic Cypress Trees in Louisiana’s swamps bordering the Mississippi River.

Experience the following exhibits on 28 historic acres: Slavery at Oak Alley, East and West Gardens, Blacksmith Shop and Sugarcane Theater.

Travel past Whitney, Evergreen, Felicity & 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 traveled to far ports of trade.

You can purchase a snack, salad or sandwich in the Plantation Café to enjoy at the picnic tables or aboard the coach.

Combine this tour with a swamp & bayou tour on the Plantation/Swamp Tour.

We took the 1pm tour to oak alley and returned promptly at 6pm. This tour takes you to the plantation where you have about 2 hours of free time to look around. The plantation itself is all self guided but you will get one voucher to view inside the main plantation home which has a local tour guide. The Plantation is absolutely beautiful to look around and take pictures with. I highly recommend going on the tour. Things to know:Bus drive to the plantation shows a video on the way, but nothing when returningThe bus is shared between the oak alley tour and the Whitney tour. Although the plantations are pretty close, about 30 minutes of total tour time is lost on transportation to a different plantation. Dwayne was our driver and was fantastic. He mentioned that we were supposed to have a tour guide for the trip but unfortunately they could not attend. Dwayne still gave lots of tips and facts on the tour. He was funny, charismatic and welcoming. Grayline only facilitates the driving to the plantation and the return, so don’t expect someone with you the whole time.

The tour was informative but the driver was somewhat monotonous and monotone making the hour and a half drive to and from Oak Alley seem very long
