This place is amazing. The history behind this place had me saying "WOW" the whole tour. Our tour guide was very informative not just about Nottaway, but also of the time peroid dating back to pre Civil War era. I think we will be going back again when they have the Christmas lights on.

The tour was amazing, the tour guide was super friendly and he was very knowledgable about the property and the vast history of the home. He made it fun and enjoyable for everyone in the group!
This was my second time visiting Houmas House and it was even better than the last! We decided to start with lunch first at Cafe Burnside and omg it was incredible. The buffet is worth every single penny! The fried catfish was literally the best I've ever had and the bread pudding should have some kind of award! After we stuffed ourselves silly, we met up with our tour guide, Suzanna. She rang the bell and started our tour off with a bang! When you enter the house, it's like hearing that "AAAAAaaaaaaAHHHHHH" theme music. It's so gorgeous inside. I love all the stories that are told about the home and its' antiques, art and artifacts. Esp the vampire slayer kit from anne rice! This home is handicap accessible as well as are the grounds. The grounds actually remind me of a botanical garden. Go check this place out and ask for Suzanna as your tour guide, you won't be disappointed!
Our tour guide was awesome. I think her name was Sue Ellen, Bobby Sue, or something like that. Super knowledgable, super friendly, made the whole experience come to life for my wife and i. Thank you for a great experience.

HISTORY COMES ALIVE IN NOLA
Experience St. Joseph Plantation, one of the few fully intact sugar cane plantations left in the River Parishes....
We loved this tour. I have three boys (ages 12, 11, & 6) who really got a lot out of this (the older ones more than the younger one) and enjoyed learning about the history. The house was gorgeous and the tour guide was so good and full of knowledge. It really was one of the highlights of our trip.
Very good tour by Jessie
We really enjoyed our tour of St Joseph Plantation... We were amazed at how much work had been done to restore the plantation. Equally as amazing is the fact that three families, all descendants of plantation owners, have banded together to ensure that their plantations continue to produce sugar cane crops in the families’ tradition. Miss Diane was a wonderful and gracious guide, and is certainly not afraid of hard work. And her personal recollections and stories of her family’s history provided a unique perspective to our tour: it wasn’t just history, it was something near and dear to her heart! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and recommend this tour to anyone wishing to not only learn about the history of a plantation, but actually see one in action!

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!!

Hop in the car, head over to New Orleans Plantation Country, and visit two historical plantations at your own leisurely...
Both were excellent. The guides were well versed on the plantations. Laura was my favorite. It was interesting to see the difference between the creole and Anglo plantations.
This was probably the most informative tour I have ever taken. Jacob, I think that was his name:) was the best tour guide I have ever had. He was at the Laura plantation. I learned so much and immediately went to the library afterwards to learn even more!
Laura plantation was so enriched with creole history. Oak alley was amazing. Highly recommend both stops if you visit New Orleans.

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.
This trip was 5 star. It was great being with friends and family sharing wonderful memories. The meal at Houmas House was fabulous.
