What You'll Get
Walking tours explore intriguing surroundings at a leisurely pace, much like a photography class held in a thick bog of quicksand. Let it all sink in with today's Groupon: for $10, you get a guided tour for two (up to a $10 value each) of the Shadows-on-the-Teche historic house and museum in New Iberia (up to a $20 total value).
Shadows-on-the-Teche's curators share the legacy of the iconic structures and inhabitants of an antebellum 19th-century sugar cane plantation that helped shape the surrounding region. Trained guides draw upon more than 17,000 documents, photographs, and talking parrots to paint fascinating pictures of the enduring structure. A brilliantly recreated picket fence stands as a small-scale preview to the towering columns that brace a structure packed with a variety of artifacts, many of which are original to the home. The plantation is a National Trust Historic Site, and the tour contains extensive information on the Weeks family, the home's influential original owners.
During a self-guided outdoor exploration, sunlight spills through spanish-moss-draped oak trees as visitors traipse past fragrant azaleas, camellias, and magnolias, which flaunt bright hues like a rainbow in a job interview.
Though students and seniors receive discounted admission, this Groupon still represents the best value for all attendees.
