  • My husband and I just visited. We both found the tour very educational and moving. I look forward to returning someday when even more of the plantation has been rehabbed. In an understated way, this t...  more »

  • Miss Cheryl was so informative and spoke with passion as she narrated the lives of the slaves. We received our tour souvenirs upon arrival. Our tour was mixed with different ethnicities, and no tension whatsoever. We were all there with an eagerness to learn......such a beautiful thing:) I didn’t know how I would feel emotionally before the tour, but after, I came away with a richness of knowledge from the very tangible past of our ancestors. Resilience, strength and courage are coded in my DNA! Thank you Miss Cheryl, thank you Whitney Plantation. I encourage EVERYONE to to visit and learn.
  • We found ourselves at Whitney after seeing a sign for it on our way to visit another plantation, and we are so happy we decided to change our plans. Our tour guide, Ali, did an incredible job of discussing the history of slavery and the systems that enabled it, all while sharing detailed information about the plantation itself. The grounds were well-maintained and (mostly) accessible for someone in a wheelchair. There was a bookstore located in the visitors center that had a great collection of fiction and non-fiction books about slavery, as well as other souvenirs. I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking for an honest telling of this portion of our nation’s history.
  • The tour was so informative. It’s very shocking to hear about the plantation but it’s delivered in a respectful and factual way. Very glad I came here rather than an alternative one not focusing on the experience of the slaves. The way they give you an identity of a child that you can focus on when going around is very poignant. Not fir the feint hearted but an experience I will not forget.
  • I went to this amazing please for my birthday this Summer 2017. I really connected with this place. This place also connected with me. I was able to catch an apparition of a slave. How about that. this place is haunted, no one can tell me different. The stories are amazing and nothing less. If you don't believe in ghost, I can beg to differ.
  • Yvonne was spectacular. She was super knowledgeable, extremely passionate, and unbelievably kind. Best tour guide. The plantation itself was a great canvas to really drive home how much the slave trade has contributed to our current way of life. Thank you, Yvonne and thank you to the Haydel/Whitney plantation.
