High quality tour with a very enthusiastic and informative guide. Excellent guides on site at the 2 plantations as well. We got to see some bonus plantations along the river road on the way back, including a couple that were utilized in some famous Hollywood pictures.

The Louisiana Plantation Tour was fabulous. History walks the halls, rooms and grounds of these grand old Southern homes. The tour of Houmas House and Gardens was the climax of the tour. The knowledge and information of our house guide was accentuated by her first person account of daily life and history of the home and its families The gardens are breathtaking!!! Must see!!!

The tour guide was wonderful...I use a walker and she was so attentive to all my needs. Her knowledge of the area was so interesting, I learned so much. I wish we saw more alligators. We only saw the top of the heads of 3. My son, on another tour, saw many as they were feeding them. Wish I went on that swamp tour.

We had a wonderful time on the plantation tours. The guides were very knowledgeable and made us want to know more, so we bought the books! The homes were so authentic and had been well cared for. The history was presented in such a way that you could imagine being there.
We loved our hotel accommodations at the St. James and the people were so accommodating. We actually felt like they were family at the end of our 5-day stay. Amy, at the front desk, was phenomenal, and so kind and helpful!
We will definitely use Viator when planning our next trip. We highly recommend them. No problems were encountered and everything went as planned.

John had good info but he didn't project very well. It was difficult to hear him and the sound system crackled when turned up. He seemed to speed through the information so there was little time for questions or to truly absorb what he was saying.

Dylan, our shuttle bus driver was FANTASTIC! He was soo knowledgeable about everything New Orleans. I am a history buff and like to know details and he KNOWS details. It was by far the most informative tour - and I did them all during my vacation. Please if you can get Dylan consider yourself very fortunate and expect insight you would not imagine. BTW, the actual tour was good - glossed over Slavery and those conditions. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous - oak trees as old as 600 years old and the Houmas House Plantation and Gardens is a plantation in exceptional state.

Really enjoyed seeing both San Francisco and Houmas House. Good to do two in one day, making for easier compare/contrast. Our guide was knowledgeable, funny and thoughtful. I learned a lot about Louisiana history (I now know the difference between Creole and Cajun!) and I saw something unique and beautiful that only exists in America! Thank you Viator.

I have been a number of tours since I travel a great deal and this was one of the best tours I have been on. Our tour guide was native to Louisianna and New Orleans and she was able to give extensive history. Truly enjoyed this tour.

We did the short tour because there was not enough people interested in the longer tour

Very interesting tour! Houmas House is absolutely beautiful, the only negative thing was that you weren't allowed to take pictures inside San Francisco Plantation.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

You added St Joseph instead of the San Francisco we signed up to see. It was a poor substitute. We passed Oak Alley which would have been much preferable.
