1.The house was full of antiques and furniture that have nothing to do with the plantation or that are even appropriate to the time. There are lots of paintings and the guide said they didn't know anything about the paintings. 2.Our guide talked so much about things like how many children the owners had, who inheritances what, but did not...

I am so thankful that this was my first plantation tour. if I would have gone to the other one that I visited that day first I would have missed this one out of frustration with the theatrical rendition on the time period the other one provided. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the home, families, time period, and... More

Took this tour a few years ago also. Renee was the tour guide on that one as well. She is very informative and gives a great historical background of the area. Wonderful Creole home with original slave cabins. Renee provided us with a little Creole culture lesson as well. Highly recommend this tour. Not as touristy as others and very... More

The tour begins at the office and patrons drive their own vehicles to the tour beginning. We had a knowledgeable guide who answered many questions on a variety of topics. Thus, I leaned many things about plantation life that I didn't know before as well as the growing of sugar cane and river transportation. The tour was about 60% outside... More

We started the tour, and from the start, our tour guide just about jogged us down the first gravel path which was difficult for my senior parents. About 15 min into the tour, my mother fell when she tripped over a brick step. Instead of responding appropriately, and offering first aid, our tour guide took off and continued the tour... More

There were more Oak Trees at Evergreen Plantation than any of the others we toured. Very well thought out when all was constructed.

We almost did not get in because it was cash or check only and we had 5 in our party. Besides that, my son was a history major and he wanted to go. Tristen was our guide and he was very knowledgable about the plantation. Was very surprised about his small the house actually was. Slave quarters were in tact.

I had been very keen to visit some plantations in the south and was delighted to discover Evergreen. You can only visit the house as part of a tour and initially I was a little reluctant as we were stretched for time that day. But having completed the tour with Tristan, our excellent guide, we were very pleased we had.... More

Short version...this plantation is privately owned and it gave me the impression that it's used as a hobby or like a toy of the owner. It's full of antiques and other artifacts that have nothing to do with the planation or that are even appropriate to the time. It just stuff the owner liked and decided to put in the... More

The house itself is very pretty (especially its pair of curving stairways and the furnished interior) though surprisingly not as vast as Hollywood's depiction of houses such as Tara. I most appreciated being able to walk through the kitchen building for a sense of domesticity and was moved by the view of the slave quarters. We were allowed to look... More
