Went on this tour with my daughter and it was awesome, loved the main house and enjoyed the outside your as well. The location was convenient and really enjoyed the tour guides stories and personal touch. I really want to go to Sugar Day the 2nd Saturday in November.

Kent House has a great herb day twice a year. You had better get there early, because they tend to sell out of many of the herbs.

Enjoyed the visit and tour. We took a group tour on a Saturday. There are 10 of us, all archaeologists. We are doing an archaeological project here in Alexandria, and it is always interesting and educational exploring different historical and archaeological areas.

My husband and I visited this plantation almost a year ago. I thought the tour was very good and it's a very reasonable price. Unlike Oak Alley Plantation near New Orleans, who charge $20 per person for a 30 minute tour which is overcrowded and you have to wait nearly two hours in line because of bus tours. We were... More

The ladies that conducted this tour are fabulous they did not just spout out memorized tour guide stuff and shuttle you along like a lot of guides do. It was a very back and forth conversation about historical information they knew and information I knew along with my wife we had the best time kind wish we could have stayed... More

My husband and I loved this plantation. We were on the first tour of the day and received the efforts of two lovely ladies who were very knowledgeable about the house and grounds. It is well worth the price and the time (about 1.5 hours). We have been to lots of southern plantations through the years and this one really... More
