Your San Francisco & Houmas House Plantations Tour begins when we pick you up at your hotel in our small group tour van.

Our excellent Driver-Guide will narrate along the way to prepare you for a pilgrimage back in time!

San Francisco Plantation

First, you’ll arrive at San Francisco Plantation, an 1856 gothic steamboat style mansion. Here, you will have a guided tour of this authentically restored National Landmark. It features elaborate gingerbread work and flamboyant hand-painted ceilings. It’s no wonder she’s earned the title “the most opulent Southern plantation!” Your tour guide will lead you through details of the lives of generations of Creole owners and their families. As you will learn, they experienced many triumphs, but they also had their share of tragedies. After visiting the mansion, you can explore an original slave cabin and the old one-room schoolhouse.

Houmas House Plantation

A short ride upriver through sugar cane fields brings you to Houmas House Plantation.

Before your guided mansion tour, refreshing Mint Juleps will be available for purchase.

Experience the southern splendor of this “Sugar Palace” when your tour guide leads you into 16 rooms filled with period antiques and Louisiana artwork. Upon completion in 1840, Houmas House was the crown jewel of Louisiana’s River Road. Houmas House Plantation has a heroically columned Greek revival exterior. It was topped by a belvedere that surveyed the oak alley leading south to the sweeping bend in the river. From it, you could also see miles and miles of cane fields extending to the North and East!

Enjoy the breeze off of the Mississippi River and stroll the grounds through the shadows of ancient oaks.
