It was a pure joyful day spent on the grounds of the Houmas Plantation! Ended our afternoon there with a dinner at Latil’s where we enjoyed a delicious three course dinner. Our time there will be a cherished memory for me and my daughter’

This trip via Old South Tours was one of the favourite parts of our recent stay in New Orleans. Keith our driver was gentile. The trip was well organized as we received a day before call about a pick up change due to Mardi Gras. The house tour was excellent. The garden self tour beautiful and the buffet at their cafe was the best food that I had during our three day NOLA stay. Lauren was a great server and the atmosphere and service throughout the cafe first rate. Their mint juleps were excellent and a perfect way to end the day in this stunning antebellum planter's home. We are Bette Davis fans and loved the connection and stories surrounding her stay there.

This tour was fantastic. The initial selling point for me was that transportation was provided from New Orleans. However, after we got there, the grounds, the tour guide, Liz, and the restaurant were simply excellent. I honestly believe this tour offers a good representation of plantation life. The absence of evidence of slave residence is regrettable, but that cannot be helped. Southern history is more complicated that most folks want to admit. I would take this tour again in a heartbeat.
