Vermilionville offers a discounted rate for groups of 20 paying customers or more at $8 per adult and $5 per child.

Your group will receive 2 complimentary admissions for the tour operator and the  motor-coach operator.

If you wish to schedule a group tour or to inquire about other visit options click here to fill out our booking inquiry form.



To ensure that we can fully accommodate a group, reservations must be made at least 2 weeks prior to the date of the tour and must include maximum numbers for the group.

Please use the booking request form at the bottom of the page. 

For a self-guided tour, we recommend no less than one-and-a-half hours in the village, with an orientation to start, and time in the gift shop after!  Please allow for at least two hours with us.

In order to receive the reduced admission rate, groups must be booked at least two weeks in advance.


Groups can take a self-guided tour, or opt for one of our guides to lead them through the village (we recommend 2 hours to complete the tour). We can provide 1 tour guide for every 25 guests at a rate of $35 (in addition to the admission cost). A tour guide must be booked at least two weeks in advance of your arrival date.


We also offer cooking demonstrations and dance lessons; both classes are 30 minutes each and cost $3 per person. There is also a watershed exhibit, which is a free guided educational tour of the environmental aspects of present-day Louisiana (15 people max per group, 45 minutes). Enhancements accompany a tour of the village and must be booked in conjunction with a visit. 


Vermilionville has a full-service restaurant and offers meal plans for groups and individuals. If your group has 20+ people and you have decided to book a group tour menu option, we can reduce your admission to $6/person for the village visit in conjunction with the lunch or a meal demo option (90 minute class). Please note that group tour participants are not permitted to eat lunch in La Cuisine de Maman; a pre-determined menu can be made by the tour operator and served in an area where we can better accommodate you.

Deposits are required for meal plans and tour guides; 1/2 of the total cost must be paid two weeks before the group’s arrival date. We do not keep credit cards on file for deposits. If you would like to set up direct billing with our accounting department, please contact
