The Oak Alley Plantation Tour in Vacherie, LA is one of the most magnificent plantation tours because of the 28 evenly spaced, huge oak trees that go from the river road to the plantation house. It looks like the movie, “Gone with the Wind”.
This Greek Revival style home dates back to 1837. Located on the grounds are a restaurant, blacksmith shop, souvenir shop and antique farm equipment. The Oak Alley tour is the complete plantation experience! The Oak Alley house tour is approximately 35 minutes and conducted by tour guides dressed in authentic plantation style apparel. Walking is required for this tour.
The distance from the Plantation house to the restaurant and souvenir shop is about one block in distance. Along the path, there are benches shaded by the oak trees.
