What folks are saying about Oak Alley Plantation

"Both tours were very informational and interesting. I had toured Oak Alley in 2010 and got a completely different tour this time! Learned a lot of new things I hadn’t learned the first time.The tour guides were knowledgeable and answered any questions anyone on our tour had. Beautiful plantations, would definitely tour again."   Erica  7/9/2018

We came to visit your plantation over the weekend. It was a lovely experience. I appreciate the new tour and it's emphasis on incorporating the work that went on behind the scenes.  Our tour guide was also fantastic and so passionate! Thanks! Corrie 1/2018

What an amazing afternoon we all had! Thank you so much for making it so special and greeting everyone the way we do here. Everyone loved the tours and thought the guides were  terrific! It was so special to share Oak Alley with our friends and all were still talking about it when we left them at 11pm. Thank you again for everything!

We enjoyed our time at the plantation. We stopped at around 5 PM and decided it was too late to tour. We came early the next morning and stayed ¾ of the day. It is really a lovely place. Thank you for  keeping everything as it is for people to enjoy. You can feel the history as you walk from place to place and take it all in.  Thanks , Jeff and LaWana  4/8/16

We had an absolutely wonderful experience last weekend, thank you so very much for all the attention given to details!  We also greatly appreciated being surrounded with so many beautiful antiques and other considerations while staying in Cottage 3!  I generally do a lot of research before going to a new place to be as familiar as possible when I arrive, and there were still many wonderful things to learn when we got there, in addition to being a special photographic opportunity.  Wonderful on so many levels!  Our greatest thanks to the Stewart family for making this all happen, keeping a priceless piece of history in motion and presenting it in such a respectable way, providing many jobs for the local community, just can't say enough good things about what this place represents.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!

My wife and I stayed at Oak Alley earlier this week, Sept. 20-22.   We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary.  I had searched for the perfect place, and I must say that I found it.  Our stay was wonderful and could not have been any better.  I just wanted to send an email and let you know.  Thanks for a wonderful time.  Stephen, Scobey, MS  9/2015

Oak Alley Management and Staff,

Thank you so much for your hospitality and professionalism. We stayed in the Rene House, New Orleans room. My new husband Joey and I love to travel and see beautiful places. He is a teacher, exhibiting photographer, and painter. I am an interior designer here in Texas, and I was so inspired by the architecture, the landscape design preservation of the grounds, and the preservation of the interiors. We cannot express our gratitude enough. We look forward to returning with a group of friends, so they too may experience a little of the majestic that is Oak Alley Plantation.

Everything was simply magical and we can't wait to visit again!!

Warm regards,


We toured Oak Alley this past Saturday and found the plantation to be a wonderful excursion for the day. We decided to eat at the plantation restaurant which was very nice and we really appreciated how everyone was so kind and helpful.

My partner and I would definitely recommend to others to make a stop at Oak Alley when visiting New Orleans.


I just wanted to thank you for your help with our group. We were a little delayed due to the horrible storm (caused one of our buses to breakdown). Everyone was very accommodating! It was so nice to have the gift shop kept open later than usual. The food was delicious!! We all really loved the tour.

Several of the other choral groups were envious that we visited Oak Alley! They visited others.

Thank you again,

Everyone loved the visit to Oak Alley and our dinner was wonderful! Thanks for all your help in making it effortless.

Please extend our thanks to the Chef, Tour Guides and all the staff who helped make it a success.

Thanks again!

Thank you again for your help. The surprise birthday party for my dad was very successful. He didn’t have a clue. The turnout was wonderful. I even met cousins for the first time. You know how Cajuns are. Large families.

Everyone stated that using Oak Alley was a great idea and were very impressed with your pavilion and I was too. Even nicer than I remembered.

Thank you for his hospitality that day. Have a great year!

We are both so happy with the way your entire staff handled everything. They did an amazing job and we could not have had a better, more magical night. Our guests were very impressed and happy (despite the plan B due to the rain) Everything was perfect!

We look forward to visiting Oak Alley whenever possible. Please give our regards to everyone that worked on our special day.

Mr. & Mrs. Soreng
