  • This tour was really family oriented and rich in history. I enjoyed that they spoke a lot on the history of the house, as well as how the various other structures on the plantation come into play. What was particularly interesting is that many of the people working and giving tours are still somehow related to the families that used to live there. The house is furnished in family heirs as well as furniture from the times. I would recommend this if you are looking for a personal tour on a specific piece of history. Although it did not tour the grounds, which I would have liked, we were allowed to tour them ourselves, and the guide gave us enough information that we knew what she was talking about.
  • The tour guide actually grew up on the plantation next door and presented life growing up, this made it very personal. I really enjoyed our visit.
  • Nice tour of old family home and grounds pictures and memorabilla with family and area history. Pleasant way to spend a couple of hours
  • Unique tour from family members who still manage and work the active sugar plantation. It was very educational and a good perspective!
  • A smaller estate and less-detailed tour, but it's worth a visit (especially if you can catch a Groupon deal). Several movies were filmed here and nearby at their sister site, Felicity. It's also family owned and still operating as a sugarcane farm, so those interested in the farming/production side will enjoy it.
