I really enjoyed visiting the plantations. The tour guides was very informative. Parking for a RV was a plus. I got the combo admission and added the buffet. Houmas House does not have buffet in the month September, but they did let us chose from the restaurant menu. The food was excellent!Verified TripShock! Traveler Review
