  • What memorable visit! We're completely charmed by our outstanding guide Desiree. This passionate woman passes many historical knowledge of the plantation and the life of the ' time with humor and depth. The tour is done in a small group, unlike other visits of plantations that are more commercial. We had l ' impression of watching a Court of history private. We highly recommend this tour for his informative and personal character. For movie fans, Django Unchained and Roots were shot on the spot. The plantation buildings are original and places are beautiful.

  • Interesting plantation and well-preserved slave quarters, inhabited by sharecropper descendents until 1940, but little real information given about the complex beyond history of the owner's family. If you want to hear the myth of "the happy slave", this is a place to go. :-P
  • I have been on three plantation tours, and this is the best so far. Great history lesson of more than just the actual property. Peter was an excellent guide, and I look forward to going back soon!
  • I live in New Orleans, but am not from here. We frequently have family and friends stay with us and love bringing them to a plantation as part of their visit. I have visited Oak Alley (3 Times), San Francisco, Nottoway and Ormond. The Evergreen is by far my favorite. The grounds are beautiful, the house is lovely, the outdoor quarters are original, the tree allies are second to none, but what makes this place so special was the quality of our guide. Desiree is a gem, she’s a plethora of knowledge, very passionate about here job, engaging and entertaining. I have never been on a better tour anywhere. This is now my go to recommendation for friends and family. I loved this plantation tour!
  • Amazing tour today. I have been on tours of castles and cathedrals all over the world and let me see with no hesitation that Desiree is the best tour guide I've ever come across. Energetic, sensible, informative and fun.
  • Quelle visite mémorable! Nous sommes complètement charmés par notre exceptionnelle guide Désirée. Cette femme passionnée transmet ses nombreuses connaissances historiques de la plantation et de la vie de l 'époque avec humour et profondeur. La visite se fait en petit groupe, contrairement à d'autres visites de plantations qui sont plus commerciales. Nous avions l 'impression d'assister à un cour d'histoire privé. Nous recommandons fortement cette visite pour son caractère informatif et personnel. Pour les amateurs de films, Django Unchained et Roots ont été tournés sur place. Les bâtiments de la plantation sont d'origine et les lieux sont magnifiques. À visiter avec Désirée !
