Our guide, unfortunately her name escapes me, was the sweetest young thing with a great appreciation and enthusiasm for the plantation’s history. She was very engaging and with the exception of one question the group had, was able to answer all of our questions. We all agreed we needed to look up some of the unique decorating themes of the...

The overall experience was unforgettable!!! The plantation played an important role during the 1800's and this place brought that part of history to life through how well of a story teller our tour guide was! I hope I'm spelling her name right, but Jabria was an awesome tour guide! She interacted with us throughout the entire tour! She was very... More

Very authentic, well maintained building and a very well documented and explained tour. The restoration kept or recovered a great deal of the original floor, walls and ceiling decoration and finishes.

San Francisco Plantation is a gem. Although often overlooked by many travelers, likely due to the nearness of the more well know Oak Alley Plantation, or the lack of an imposing front view (much of the front property was lost for levee and River Road construction years ago), the house itself is one of the best restored and interesting plantation...

Our tour was just about a hour and was very informative, probably one of the larger and most opulent plantation homes still on the river. Our guide was very personable and knowledgeable about the history of the home and owners.

My husband and I have visited all of the RIver Road plantations, and we thought we had save the best for last because of the lovely pictures of San Francisco house. We bought a 4-home plantation tour card, so we were unsure if we needed a ticket or not. WE WERE THE ONLY PEOPLE ON THE GROUNDS AT THIS TIME.... More

The plantation is an interesting one, very nicely restored with an interesting history. I found the tour to be informative and interesting, done by a young lady with enthusiasm. There is plenty of parking and if you park on one side, you may need to walk across the plantation grounds to buy tickets at the gift shop. They saw us... More

We visited here on our last day of our New Orleans trip. It was a you know what to get to from where we were but worth it. I too was surprised that there was a Marathon refinery located all around it but in fact the Marathon corporation owns the plantation and the land it is on and rescued it... More

Little gem of a plantation house set by the Mississippi river. Great tour and interesting story about the owners past. Beautifully restored recently. Don't let the chemical factory close by put you off...it is worth the visit.

We went to this after going to Nottoway Plantation, so it really couldn't live up of course. Even if we did go here first, I think we would have been disappointed. So I don't say this lightly - only go if you want to complete the set or see every plantation in the area, else don't bother. Our primary reason... More
