  • Very interesting and educational plantation to visit. Our tour guide Jim is very knowledgeable and a nice gentleman. The other people we met are also knowledgeable and provided demonstrations of plantation life at that time.
  • Nice tour. I like that it's only 45 minutes and then you can self tour as long as you want. The staff was very friendly, helpful and asked us several times if we were enjoying our tour or had questions. They were willing and able to give tons of information during and after the tour. Walk-ups welcome but you may have to compete with the senior tours.
  • The grounds are beautiful! The house is really interesting. We had Beverly as our tour guide. She was very friendly and knows a lot about the history of the plantation. The main focus is the house, but she also told us about residents and slavery. I found it a well rounded story that took a lot in account. After the tour we got to walk around on our own which was great.
  • Excellent tour. Our guide Frank was very knowledgeable. Putting this together with a swamp tour only allowed 90 minutes and we could have used more time.
  • This plantation is beautiful and well appointed. The tour was very well done. The live oaks on the property are amazing also.
