It cost me 80.00 for 4 of us to take pictures of the exterior of the house. The tour was terrible and consisted of the guide saying, "This is the main house and the kitchen is not attached due to fire precautions. Any questions". There was no historical information given and the furnishings inside the plantation do not match the... More

Besides the obvious association with Hollywood, this plantation had a much deeper display of 'real' plantation life in the small museum that you visit before the house tour. It had the entire history of the place organized in three rooms, based on the family who owned the property at the time. Personal documents, artifacts, and other items gave you a... More

This plantation was part of my tour through The Old River Road company. Excellent tour and beautiful property. My favorite part was the original slave quarters, which was both amazing yet very touching. Highly recommend!

Excellent tour, beautiful property. There are lots of buildings to see and the changes made to buildings over time were nicely pointed out.

Really 4.5 out of 5. We stopped here for the 9:30 tour on a day when we toured 4 plantations. Evergreen is easily the most straight forward tour and really gives you a better feel of what life was like. The house is not really large and grand. The slave quarters are original too and a moving experience. Both sides... More

Great tour, the house is absolutely beautiful, very interesting tour guide, and facts about the house! The slave quarters is very touching, you can feel heaviness as you walk by the cabins, and you can even walk though one of them! I definitely recommend!

I visited Evergreen Plantation last week and it far exceeded my expectations! First, the house was air-conditioned. I did not expect that a historical home would have such a modern upgrade. This was great relief because it was close to 100 degrees outside and a nice break from the outdoors. Second, the "oak alley" of 250 years old trees went... More

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.
