The history of the rice mill is great---it weaves the past with the present and the guide explained all of the products they produce from rice. Great selection of cookbooks to choose from as well as a well-stocked store selling their products. Did not know that the rice fields also produce crayfish---a staple of Cajun cooking. The inside of the... More

We were worried because we had two dogs in our car - so parked in the shade of the tower of the mill. Asking if this was "okay" - the guide simply said - bring them in - we are pet friendly. BUT - - - I said - we plan to take the tour! She said "that's fine -... More

We did not have time this trip for a tour of the mill but there are tours available. We did take some photos of the mill and silo that I believe are going to make beautiful prints. There is a gift shop with all sorts of gifts both food and non-food and always some rice dish to try. It will... More

I agree with other reviewers, the film looks outdated but the Cajun history which is told here is important and whole thing just adds to the experience. The shop is packed with rice, Cajun, Louisiana or Konriko related items. You can taste some of the product without any pressure to buy anything. This is one of those stops where you... More

We enjoyed the tour and the General Store, the store has lots of things you can buy, the rice is the best. We purchased the pecan rice and it is great. Lots of seasonings and spices.

Not worth the money. Video about Cajun culture is 17 minutes long and was probably created in the 1980s. We viewed it from a computer. There is no excuse at this time for such an old video. It is a cheap and easy fix. Also, the video should focus on rice planting and harvesting. We had to look at three... More

My husband and I have been touring Cajun country in our motorhome and went to New Iberia specifically to tour the Konriko rice mill and the Tabasco plant on Avery Island. It was a slow Tuesday so we were fortunate that our tour had only one other couple and us, allowing us to ask questions as we went along. Our... More

We didn't take the tour of the rice mill, but visited the general store and I loved it! The lady working there, Miss Sara (sorry if I am getting your name wrong), was so friendly and it was nice to talk with her about the area and the store. They have some wonderful food products; all sorts of rice from... More

I brought a group of students there last week. I really could not believe they charged money for the "tour", which consisted of sitting in a storeroom watching a very dated movie and then walking over to the rice factory where we saw nothing being made but dust. The cats that are used for rodent control were the best part... More
