Beautiful old plantation home, respectfully restored and maintained. Guide (volunteer) was knowledgable and entertaining. Furniture also beautiful and apparently most is original to the home. After the tour, a cocktail and snack of boudin and gumbo is served on the lawn by the Bayou Teche...More

We were totally intrigued by the red brick home on the main street of New Iberia. It was a unique antebellum home with character and charm I had never seen before. Smaller than Oak Alley and Madewood, it felt more personal. Perhaps, this is because...More

This was the 1st of 6 plantations we visited in 3 days. It was a wonderful informative in-site as to how they lived during that era in our History. Beautifully restored and maintained and the grounds were very nice.

This was a great tour of the Shadows on Bayou Teche. I love that the home is still in great condition with so much of the original furnishings.

I am a volunteer for the Shadows and I give tours in French. The Shadows is a plantation home which was built in the 1820's. The video and tour of the home is great!

I recently took the tour of Shawows on the Teche with Rachel. As it happened, I was the only tourist there; it was a cold day with an unlikely ice storm en route. Rachel was so fun and you can tell that she really loves...More

We went to view the Shadows during the Christmas craft show. Beautiful setting and fun to get the history behind the home, and local area. Only complaint was that it seemed rushed, but it was a busy day for them.

The first tour starts around 9 or 9:30 am and the last tour starts about 4:15. However you would want to go early enough to have plenty of time to look around the ground on your own.
