The house, the oak trees, the history. All incredible! Great tour guides. Gift shop with food and drinks. Very nice way to spend an afternoon in Louisiana.

Oak Alley does a good job of explaining all aspects of plantation life. The employees seem to truly care about the visitors' experiences and want to offer information that will enhance the trip. The café is a great asset as well.
