  • Great tour and very entertaining guide. Beautiful house and grounds. Got a lot of information that I didn't know about the area during time when the country was first settled. Highly recommended.
  • The guide was super knowledgeable about the history of the plantation. You get to see the main house, the property, and the slave cabins. You're totally welcome to take pictures and ask questions. Relaxed, beautiful, and informative tour.
  • 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!
