  • Compared to all the other plantations, I found Evergreen's tour by far the most interesting. In addition, the tour guide was friendly, personable, had a great sense of humor, and patiently answered every question the group had, and with a smile. The inside is well staged with interesting detail, the slave cabins told a beautiful story of struggle and family, the grounds are breathtaking, and there is no push to get you out. You can take your time. Best of all, there is a wonderfully stocked book and gift store. I can't say enough about the tour. You will not be disappointed. All that said, other plantations nearby tell a different story and offer a variety of historical tales regarding their families. See as many as you can, but don't pass up Evergreen. It's special.
  • A beautiful plantation with a rich history. 22 intact slave quarters on the property. It is a smaller plantation but still learned so much. Thank you Desiree for a informative, interactive and lively tour. Most of the plantation tours are every hour throughout the day, this one has only 3 a day so be sure to plan accordingly, especially if you plan to do more than 1 in a day.
  • Lots of historical information. Mary, our guide , was very knowledgeable and interesting. The house was different from other plantations we have seen. Great tour!
  • I thought this tour was great. It was not the only tour we did this day but was my favorite. It seemed more authentic and less commercialized than the others. There's also something to be said about the live oak alleyway. Highly recommended!
  • This was amazing! The ride into the plantation was beautiful. Desirae, our tour guide, was super knowledgeable, energetic and fun! Every question we had was answered, and we had plenty of time for pictures. Well worth the $20 per person.
