Had a delicious lunch and relaxed by strolling through the gardens and enjoyed visiting the gift shop where I usually over spend. It's my favorite and the selection is so unique. A visit to Houmas House is always a win win situation!

The garden and grounds were lovely, even in the winter. A must-see for all avid gardeners. The inside was nicely decorated for the Christmas season. Photographers will enjoy many opportunities for great pictures.

The tour was very good. Our guide was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. A little more information about the enslaved people who worked there would have been helpful. Lunch in the restaurant was excellent. We have visited before and planned on having lunch there. We will return when their next expansion is completed.

Bobbi Sue our guide was the best! We visited 3 plantations and this was by far the best! A lot of hands on by our guide, and she was so animated and gave so much information, you could tell she loved her job.
