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

I went to here to take a tour during the afternoon. It was well worth the addmission price of $8.00 that day. I was the only person there for a tour. A nice lady gave me the tour of the home along with is history. She showed me different pieces of antique furniture in the home and what its purpose... 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

I love to tour places like this, and my husband and I got to see some things without doing the tour. I loved the visitor center, which we browsed in for awhile. In my opinion, the tour cost was too much and they didn't let us wander around without a guide, so we didn't get to do it this time,

My wife and I truly enjoyed the tour. The docent was personable and knowledgeable. The plantation itself was not too big, just a good size to spend about 90 minutes. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

I thoroughly enjoy taking visitors to Kent Plantation House. It provides a well preserved and cared for representation of life in that period of Louisiana history. The docents conducting tours are well educated and informative. There are times during the year when special events are held with syrup making and cooking being demonstrated.

This is an historical little gem in Alexandria and shouldn't be missed on a trip to this city. There is something always going on that will interest both adults and children from Herb Day to Bug Day.
