  • So, let's be honest, YES, we chose to visit this plantation there by what is a scenery of Django Unchained. But we would have visited one, no matter what happens. The tour is interesting. But the historical explanations are devoted to 98% in the history of the families who owned the plantations in the region. We know that slavery is something horrible, but we would have liked it tells us a little bit, even if it is hard and sad, after all, need to raise awareness. We visit the main house, with rooms, kitchens, etc. Historical course on the genealogy of families, for 30 minutes. Then we visit the cabins where the slaves "stayed", but not really an explanation of their condition. Again, it has an idea, but when we visit a place as strong in history, let's end things, even if it is not easy to hear.

  • Beautiful place. We take a tour that includes a history of the place, origins, development and end of the plantation. Toured the House main, them dependencies Deputy, the gardens and the facilities of them slaves. The guide had a passion and pride for the history of Louisiana, worthy of admiration. Not to be missed. Counts with 2 trails of Oaks very old that you leave with the mouth open. It is essential to understand the history of the plantations, sugar cane and the creole culture.

  • This was truly the best tour I've ever taken! Our tour guide Desiree was so engaging and knowledgeable; the grounds are beautiful; the history so interesting. The $20 is completely worth it! 
  • I did not enjoy the tour guide at all. She spent a lot of time on the history of the slave masters and the owners, versus the history of the slaves. She did not know a lot of the history on the slaves other than what was told to her. One of my questions was where are the slaves that died on this property buried? Her answer was I am not sure somewhere in the sugarcane field. THE TOUR WAS NOT WORTH THE MONEY.
  • The tour guide was very insightful of the rich history of the Evergreen Plantation. Decently priced for a hour and a half tour of the farm. You get a up close and personal look at what farm life was like for the owners and slaves that were there.
  • Great tour! Great lesson in history. If you've seen the movie "Django Unchained" you would never believe how small this house actually is. This was 'Big Daddys' house in the movie, and hit looked like a huge sprawling mansion, but, it was actually only 6 rooms. Towards the end of the tour when the tour guide was showing us the slave quarters I was shocked at the ignorance of some of the attendees. As the guide explained how the slaves would grow their own food and would share amongst each other one older lady (60+) on the tour asked "where did they shop? Where were the stores? If they grew their own vegetables, where did they buy their meat?" REALLY LADY? GREAT TOUR!
  • Fantastic tour guide. We learned so much about history. The area was quiet and quaint, it felt like it hadnt changed that much since its earlier days. Very much enjoyed the 1.5 hr tour. Note there is no credit cards acceptance and also no indoor photos.
  • I was a little underwhelmed by the tour as a whole. Thorough history of the main house and property. Although interesting, I expected more of a tour of the property. The former slave quarters were very unique and great to see.
