We visited this plantation while staying in New Orleans, and it was well worth the visit. The guide was very knowledgeable and told the story and history of the property in great but manageable detail and really helped put the property and its history into perspective. This is one of the few plantations in the south that is largely intact,... More

Having seen the plantation from the road from a young age, I was more than excited to learn it had been opened to the public. Living in Texas for quite a few years now I grabbed a couple of friends and finally was able to see if for myself! The main house was smaller than it looks but nonetheless beautiful.... More

I admit we went on a lark because it is one of the filming locations of DJango. Our interpreter whose name I believe was Desiree was aware that some in our group were there because of that. She did not overdo it and her tour was one of the best I have been on. Her interpretation of the history, the... More

The day we visited this plantation, there was a big thunderstorm which caused a significant delay to our tour. We actually had to take a break and go to lunch and some of us came back to tour the slave quarters. Also, a TV show had rented the property and had a big tent erected for the crew as well... More

The tour is long, but oh so worth it! We had the pleasure of having Desiree as our tour guide and not only was she knowledgeable and pleasant, but funny and lively! She was a hoot. The mansion, the property, outside kitchen, the grounds, and slaves' houses all very interesting to see and learn about. The owners have gone a... More

My wife and I hit quite a few plantations in the NOLA area but I'd have to say this was my favorite. It didn't seem quite as "commercialized" as the others and was quite enjoyable.

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.
