“Neat Historical Site”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Good parking; greeted at gift shop. Short wait for tour to start. Tour guide was informed and helpful. No pics inside? Unfortunate for those of us with cameras. House, furnishings and history was better than most we have seen. After guided tour, you can walk around grounds and take pics outside. Discerning youth and adults will appreciate this walk through old times.
If my information is helpful, please check it so. Thanks

“Interesting house!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

We have visited many historic homes but have never seen one with such an unusual layout. The tour guide was very informative and the stories about the family that lived there were very interesting. If you are a AAA member, ask for the discount ($1 off per person).

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We stopped in New Iberia on our way to Houma and decided to visit the Shadows. It was our first visit to a former plantation and it was quite interesting as we learned a lot about the family who once resided there. The visit takes about one hour and a half so if you got some time to spare I would recommend to go.

“Nice Side Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Liked the tour in general and the tour guide was really good. Spent a while taking photos and hanging out there for a good amount of time.
The price was a bit high, in our opinion and think they would draw more visitors by knocking of a couple of bucks.
