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 Shadows on the Teche is a must see for anyone coming to New Iberia, La. So much history to be shared in this area, dating back to the Civil War.

Interesting history of a bygone house that is well maintained and so interesting. Guide was professional and anyone finding fault with this property, must understand that history is to be appreciated, never confirmed.

This is an interesting home with a colorful history. You stop across the street at the visitor center and pay $10.50 per adult. Then you see a video and cross the street for a tour of the grounds and house. There are stairs involved in...More

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.
