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

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.
