Firstly this review is no disrespect to the staff in this location who were mostly polite & incredibly helpful, if this review was based solely on them I would give 5 stars. We took an uber to this location as it was cheaper than a bus tour BUT uber will not pick you up from here & a taxi will... More

I didn't have time for a tour but did go into the small but very nice gift shop. They have a nice selection of cookbooks and the guide who walked with us was very kind and engaging. The distinctiveness of the home alone make this a valuable stop.

San Francisco Plantation is on the opposite side of the Mississippi from the Oak Alley Plantation. Although closer to New Orleans, it is not as popular a stop as Oak Alley. Built in the 1850s, the 11,000-square foot house is more representative of the architecture of plantation homes of the early to mid-1800s. The grounds are not nearly as impressive... More

Very interesting to hear about this unique plantation. Guide was okay. Can't take pictures inside. Other buildings added to the property to give some history of the period was interesting.

This is about a 45 minute drive from New Orleans. Our guide was superb. The house is beautiful and unique. You cannot take picture inside so I cannot show you some of the gorgeous painted ceilings and the awesome cypress woodwork all over the house. The story of the family and those who have inhabited the house is interesting. I... More

I had always wanted to see the plantation but Frisco Faire was on at the same time. We were ushered into the house and bounced from tour guide to tour guide. I honestly cannot remember one thing about the house. One guide only spent about two minutes with us. As soon as we were escorted out, the tour guides had... More

After seeing Oak Alley, San Fran Plantation was underwhelming. If you have the power pass, go! If not, explore other options! It is an unique plantation in its style and history. Couldn't take pictures of the inside of the house...

We had a great tour with Connie in the San Francisco Plantation House. Connie was so well informed and had our attention from the moment she began right through to the end of the tour. It was fascinating to hear about the family history of the house and we loved the painted ceilings.

I purchased a New Orlean powerpass and this plantation was one of the attractions included. Since I had a rental car, we was there on a Sunday morning at 9:45 am and got on the tour at 10 am. Since we was so early , my wife & I was the only one on the tour. The tour lasted 45... More

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and answered our questions about family and furniture with ease. The house is owned by a chemical plant so be prepared for a terrible smell and industrial view outside the fences. Many plantations were bulldozed by the chemical and oil companies in the past, so we are very lucky that this beauty was spared. The... More
