We visit, our first plantation house, when we were staying in New Orleans, the guide was new and was able to tell the story in one monotone tone all the way. We were disappointment about the state of plantation the info and the guide. Only when we visit the following day the plantation Laura, what was fantastic and very informative,... More

I'll have to say I was confused about the name of the Plantation, but after taking the tour I understand why the plantation got its name. Such a beautiful place to visit. I'll definitely come back to visit again.

This house is not as big as others (Oak Alley, Nottoway), but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in charm. The house is small (only in comparison to others), but there is plenty to see. The paintings in the rooms are just gorgeous. Furthermore, the tour guide was knowledgeable in the extreme. She had a command not... More

A smaller plantation than Oak Alley, but very interesting. Our tour guide was excellent, and was also responsible for doing much of the research on its background. Worth the trip out.

We stopped here on a whim on the way from New Orleans to Baton Rouge. They charge $10/person for you to walk the grounds and take pictures or you can take the tour for $17/person. The prices are kind of ridiculous for what you get. You also cannot take pictures inside the home. The tour guide was pleasant, but definitely... More

Elderly tour guide talked more about her grandfather than about the people that lived in the house. She was not able to answer that many questions. There was not enough info about the other buildings. If you want to only see a plantation home this tour was OK. If you want the entire history of a plantation take another tour.

Beautiful grounds. Delightful tour. We were very taken with the furnishings of a long gone era. The blue house painting is a real attraction and so is the water tank outside!

My wife and I toured the San Francisco Plantation after we toured St. Joseph Plantation. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and gave a good tour of the large house. She reminded me of a slimmer, better-educated version of my late mother-in-law. You'll be able to recognize the plantation by the blue cisterns on either end. Unfortunately, pictures inside the...

Take the time to enjoy the tour of this plantation house. The grounds are equally stunning, and the house is an easy drive from New Orleans. Take lots of photographs outside and stand on the levee in front for a grand view of the house. So different from others. Our tour guide was exemplary.
