Our tour guide, Desireé, was charming, knowledgable, and passionate about providing us with a true sense of life in Louisiana in the early days. She clearly has studied the generations of families that resided at the Evergreen Plantation and presented a fair and balanced perspective of what life was like for all the inhabitants. I learned a great deal and... More

Across two days, my mom and I visited some of the best known mansions/plantations between Natchez and New Orleans, including: Stanton Hall (Natchez), Longwood (Natchez), Melrose (Natchez), Nottoway ( White Castle), and we stopped by Oak Alley (Vacherie) but both of us had been there before and we wanted to be sure to make it to Evergreen in Edgard in...

We visited Evergreen on a rainy Wednesday between Christmas and New Year's. We enjoyed the visit in particular for two reasons: My wife is descended from the Sonjy family, which owned the plantation for many years. In fact, her grandmother was born in one of the satellite buildings. It was fun to hear new details and see the family history... More

We only had time to visit one plantation so I selected this because of the number of historical buildings on site. I was excited to find out that some of Django Unchained was filmed there. A Hollywood crew was there preparing sets for filming another movie when we arrived. The grounds and the Oak Tress were wonderful to see. The... More

We rent a car from New Orleans and drove about 50min to get to Evergreen Plantation. The tour promptly started at 11:30am and lasted 90min. The tour lady we had also holds a job as history teacher, who grew up from the area. One could tell that she really enjoys her job and quite energetic. Not only she told us... More

We were on our New Orleans area plantation tour and mistakingly started with Evergreen. We had meant to be further east, but worked out great since tours are only offered a few times a day and we were there at one of those times. Unlike most of the other plantations this one is still working and is privately owned. Our... More

This was my favorite tour from the whole weekend. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. She has obviously done her research. She gave us very in depth info on the history of the plantation culture and heritage of the settlers in the area. This one is a must see. A little to controlled on where you go on the property...
