In front of the plantation’s “Big House” stands a row of 28 evenly spaced 300 year old Southern Live Oaks. These trees are not only beautiful to look at, but the tunnel they form forces air from the river to the house, creating a continuous and cool breeze. While the alley trees are very old, the average age for a Live Oak is 600 years, making these only middle aged! The 28 trees, match the 28 columns on the “Big House”. The largest tree, “Josephine Stewart” has a girth of 30 ft in circumference and has a 127 ft. limb spread. Its namesake, Ms. Josephine, was the last owner of Oak Alley, and it was she who established the Oak Alley Foundation, which preserves the plantation today. A green fern grows on the trunk and limbs of the trees. This is called the “Resurrection Fern.” It gets its name because it dies back when there is not enough water, but with one good rain, the fern “resurrects” by turning bright green again. Come see one of the World's most famous plantations, OAK ALLEY!

Stop At: Oak Alley Plantation, Vacherie, Louisiana

I'm Paul, a born & raised 49 year old native of New Orleans. I have given hundreds of tourists from around the world my Oak Alley Plantation Experience! I will walk with you through each exhibit (The Landscape, The "Big House", The Sugarcane, The Civil War Tent, The Slave Quarters, & The Blacksmith Shop) & share with you the history of this 200 year old plantation.
The Landscape:
From its 28 evenly spaced 300 year old Southern Live Oak Trees to its open spaces, to its hidden nooks and crannies, Oak Alley’s landscape tells the story of a plantation in its evolution. Wide pastures stand where a Pecan Grove once thrived. A 1920’s formal garden quietly preserves the remains of a 1830’s kitchen hidden under its turf. As a landscape that speaks truthfully of its past with the parts that remain, it offers visitors an unrestricted opportunity to detach, contemplate, and imagine.
The "Big House":
Plantation mansions were called “Big Houses” referencing their relative difference in stature compared to the enslaved dwellings and other outbuildings that made up the sugar plantation complex. The "Big House" at Oak Alley is no exception. Built with success, prestige and power in mind, the Oak Alley "Big House" commands attention.
The Sugarcane:
With a 3 dimensional map of the Roman family empire & exhibit detailing how sugarcane was grown & processed when Oak Alley was an operating plantation as well as today. It is packed with stories of how the plantation functioned, & how important slavery was to creating the plantation and the mansion.
The Civil War Tent:
An Historical Interpreter, in conjunction with a video kiosk, shares the impact the Civil War had on Oak Alley.
The Slave Quarters:
Oak Alley as a sugar plantation was built by and relied on enslaved men, women, and children. This exhibit focuses on some of the individuals who were owned and kept on the plantation, their lives and living conditions. It also includes a look into life after emancipation, as laborers continued to live in the increasingly squalid housing until the 20th century.
The Blacksmith Shop: You will learn the enduring legacy of Louisiana craftsmen and share the history of forging metalwork on plantations.
Lights, Camera, Action!
The following is a list of productions filmed in part or entirely on location at Oak Alley Plantation:
Interview with a Vampire, Beyoncé's "Déjà Vu" Music Video & "B'Day", Days of our Lives, Nightrider, Primary Colors, Midnight Bayou, Ghost Hunters, Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte, Dixie: Changing Habits, & The Long Hot Summer
Bring a camera, there will plenty of picturesque shots to take of Oak Alley's 200 hundred year old history.
Your Transportation, Admission, Lunch, & Beverages are included in the price of the experience.
THIS IS A PRIVATE EXPERIENCE, ONLY YOUR GROUP WILL ATTEND.

Oak Alley Plantation tour plus 6-9 passenger airboat swamp tour.

We are only 35 minutes from New Orleans, yet a world apart. Our New Orleans air-boat tour is a high speed adventure that is part tour, part thrill ride. You will travel at high speeds in the 6 or 9 passenger boat, then slow down and stop for photo opportunities. Along the way, you will get a personal tour by your local Captain. Our air-boats have stadium seating, so that the person in front of you does not obstruct your view, and every seat is great for experiencing the tour and viewing the wildlife. Yes, gators will get close, very close. So close, that you will be able to look into those reptilian eyes.
Alligators do hibernate in the colder months, but our experienced captains know where to look for them. On average, during the winter, you'll have better than a 50/50 chance of seeing a "gator". In the warmer months, you will see a gator. Every New Orleans air-boat tour is unique and we never know what will be around the next corner. The area toured is a combination of swamp, marsh and lake. So, you may see anything from a Bald Eagle to a pelican to Osprey to an owl. It really is that diverse.
The air-boats are driven by a 454 Chevy Engine that will produce speeds of up to 35 miles an hour. They are propelled by a huge fan that will blow air from the back of the boat in excess of 200 miles an hour. These tours are truly a blast! They ride in inches of water and go where traditional boats cannot go. These boats were designed to take you to inaccessible areas of the swamp, places that you cannot reach by foot or car. It is truly a unique experience.
In combination with the airboat tour, you'll also visit the Oak Alley Plantation, which was built in 1837, with a 1/4 mile path, from River Road to the plantation house, lined with twenty-eight evenly spaced Oaks. There are additional attractions on the grounds which includes a restaurant, cafe and gift shop. The choice is yours how you would like to use your free hour.
