Greatly enjoyed touring through history at the beautiful plantation. Haley was very versed, a great source for all of our inquiries. The guest area also has so much history of the plantation and Louisiana.

We looked at the writeups on many plantations and decided on Evergreen. We're glad we did. It wasn't too crowded, and the vast majority of the buildings are still intact. Katie was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and ready to answer any questions. A great experience.

This tour is was great for it's authenticity. It's the only plantation that I have been to that has all of it's original slave housing intact as it was during the slave era. The house was interesting, but the slave house row was interesting and is the real draw to this plantation.

Just wow! This plantation was absolutely amazing! Gorgeous grounds, original slave cabins, live oaks, and an amazing house. I know a lot about southern history, but I came out of this tour with so much new (to me) information. The tour guide was amazing, and she was able to make the plantation lifestyle come to life with her stories. Cultural... More

This is one of the many plantations on the River Road. It was especially interesting because the original structures are all still there. The original slave quarters are lined up and open to exploring. Hailey was our guide. She is a student at LSU and she has a passion for Louisiana history. She is a walking encyclopedia and can answer... More

Has original slave homes and we could tour the kitchen. However the main house and the kitchen were heavily modified to support modern guests. The docent here was much better than at Oak Alley.

Beautiful Greek Revival home on River Road. All twenty-two original slave cabins still exist. Still a working sugar plantation.

We visit here in February 2015. Not probably the busiest of time, but the weather was just perfect for the tour. I can imagine that during the summer it can be really hot, so pick the morning tours. The visit was really informative and the guide told a lot of stories from the history of the plantation. The plantation is... More

Its a shame the tour didnt last longer... it seemed to be over pretty quickly and although there were opportunities for photos... I wish that there had been more.. we certainly didnt feel welcome to stick around or wander. The tour guide said she had been there for 16 years... she had lots of information and seemed to genuinely love... More

I have toured three of the plantations along the River Road, and found this to be the most interesting of the three. To start off, it isn't as widely visited as the others, which makes for a nice experience. The twin staircases in front of the house are impressive and while the house is not huge, it is lovely inside.... More
