Both of the plantations we toured were absolutely amazing. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable, friendly and happy to answer our questions. Each property was staffed with the kindest and most helpful people.

We visited San Francisco & Houmas House plantations. They were both different, but I think being able to see both gave a better perspective. San Francisco plantation actually gave us more thorough history.

The trip was really nice. Just maybe if we could have had a 12 passenger vehicle to bring us rather than caravan in our own cars. The Houmas House was absolutely beautiful, tour guide was great, lunch was delicious. San Francisco house was nice.
