The great cultural divide that is Louisiana is illustrated in two very different plantations: One Anglo, the other...
Logan was an excellent guide... extremely knowledgeable, with an engaging presentation. Thouroughly enjoyed this tour!
Suzanna was such a delightful tour guide at Houmas House. Not only was she informative, but sweet, polite, and patient towards all of her guests. The garden was so beautiful and serene. So many photo opportunities. We were hoping for one of the many dragon flies to rest on our shoulders for good luck, but that didn’t happen. Instead, we settled for some dragon fly souvenirs from their cute gift shop. Their gift shop has a great selection of books and children's gifts, as well. We purchased a Louisiana cookbook, which was recommended by one of the sales associates, for my mother-in-law. My husband and I had been to the Laura Plantation before, during our last visit to NOLA, but this was a special birthday trip for my mother-in-law and we wanted her to experience Laura Plantation because it reminded my husband of where they were raised on Guam. Joseph, our tour guide, was very, very knowledgeable and was great at putting everything into perspective in today’s world. In fact, my husband and I enjoyed this visit better than our first. We learned so much more this time around.
Tour guide was amazing, knowledgeable and kept tour fresh and engaging. Knew her stuff!!

The tour and buffet at Houmas were exceptional. The Laura tour was very interesting. My only complaint would be that these tours should be limited to 15 people. There were probably 25 in our groups, and at the Laura Home especially the rooms were very crowded and it was hard to take pictures

We had a wonderful day. The guide that was supposed to be for our tour called in sick so we were lucky to get a gentlemen that bought the artwork and was very involved in the home! He was terrific. He was as you would expect very knowledgeable and passionate about his job. We learned so much. This was at Houmas House. Lunch then was well worth the money and spectacular! Laura Plantation, our guide was Joseph and he too was just the very best we could have hoped for. Both plantations were so different one from another and that's what made it all the better!

I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my wife. What a wonderful way to recall the joys of Christmas while enjoying the history and heritage that is ours. Everything was as advertised with no glitches or unpleasant surprises. Looking forward to our next adventure with Shock Tour.
