We went on the Oak Alley Plantation Tour instead of renting a car and doing this on our own. We are very glad that we had done this. We had an excellent tour guide, Kindrell, who kept us very much entertained during the long drive to the plantation. He was very funny and provided a lot of information about the city and history on the way there. It felt like 2 tours in one.

Together with 2 friends we did the Oak Alley Plantation tour today. It was fantastic, the plantation house is beautiful, the grounds and oaks are breathtaking, the tour guides at the location were helpful and friendly. Our driver and guide was Gerard. He had extensive knowledge of the grounds and was full of passion and energy and had a great sense of humor. His stories and jokes made the over 2 hour trip pass very quickly and we learned so much in the process.

While the driver and tour guide was humorous and informative, but the sound quality from his microphone on the trip to the Plantation was so poor I could barely make out what he was saying. Fortunately the sound was much better on the return trip, as he really knew his stuff. The plantation and grounds were very impressive, however we were not given enough time to really take it all in. Our tour guide appeared to be reciting her talk as memorized from a script. There were many instances where we had to wait for the tour group ahead of us to leave a room before we could enter it and if none of the guests had questions, we stood there in silence as she provided no 'extra' details about the home or the families would had lived there.

We took the Oak Alley Plantation tour, which was wonderful, but we most enjoyed the tour that Ken, our bus driver, gave us on the way to the plantation and back. We learned so much about the area: from what happened when Katrina hit to how folks are buried in New Orleans. He is so knowledgeable and funny. One of the best tour guides we have ever had. If we get back to NOLA we will definitely try to take another tour with him. The tour of Oak Alley was great. What a beautiful place, and the story of the Roman family is compelling. Walking along the avenue lined with 300-year-old live oaks is an experience you won't forget.

We took our first trip to New Orleans January 2016 and had an amazing time! One thing on our list was to visit Oak Alley Plantation and what better way to do that than with a tour company! Gray Line was great. The bus was very comfortable and the driver was great about giving us some history on our trip to the Plantation. The driver was very punctual. The plantation itself was gorgeous and an absolute must see. My one complaint is that the house was undergoing renovations, so we were not able to go inside. I know that is not Gray Lines fault, however, but it did take a little away from the experience. I think the driver found out about the renovations as we arrived at the ticket booth. I highly recommend Gray Line!

First, the plantation tour...We were initially going to go with another tour company for our plantation tour, but so glad we didn't! The Grayline Oak Alley plantation tour was very easy to book and sign in. Kendall was our tour guide and driver, and he was very welcoming, hilarious, a safe driver, and super informative all along the drive (and he sounds like he's a great cook!)! Oak Alley is beautiful, and the tour guide around the house also gave a great tour. My one minor issue about the tour was that there wasn't really much time in between the actual house tour and the pickup time to explore the rest of the ground of the plantation, but as I expect I'll be back someday, it's not a big deal to me.
Now, to the Natchez Jazz dinner cruise...again, very easy to book and sign in to. The band was seriously amazing, and the cruise itself was very pleasant. We were fascinated by the steam room. There was a bit of confusion about dinner timing, and how/when we were allowed to go to the buffet, but ultimately we got seated and had plenty of food. The food was merely okay, and the service was kind of slow (looked to be quite understaffed). But everyone was very courteous and overall we had a good time. We'd probably go back again, maybe during the day time.
