Had a really great tour of the plantation, being the only ones on the tour we were very well looked after. Found the size of the house, and the unceremonious nature of it's presentation really refreshing - you get to see how a 'normal' sized plantation on the River Road worked, which was exactly what we were looking for. And... More

We visited the Evergreen Plantation as part of our honeymoon road trip. We have always been very interested in the history of slavery - especially as I studied the topic as part of my degree in history. It was a unique and interesting experience to see the house and especially the slave cabins at the back, and we got some... More

Honestly, the house tour was not exactly what I was hoping for. The house itself was very, very small and the tour guide, although knowledgable, was very un-engaging. The highlight of the visit was definitely the slave quarters located amongst the 200-300 year old oak trees.

We drove over an hour to get here and arrived at the tour office at 9:25 for the 9:30 tour. When we went in to purchase a tour ticket the person told us the tour had already left and that they kept a prompt schedule. Not oops sorry you missed the first tour or hey you have time to catch... More

We choose this tour because it was advertised as being well preserved. It met our expectations. I recommend you get their 30 minutes before the tour begins so you have time to view the exhibits at the orientation center. Our guide was good. The oak trees alleys were impressive.

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
