This is a great place to sink in the past a little. I would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't for our tour guide. We stood right in front of her and it still felt as if she was whispering. The best place to hear her was inside the house because it echod a little. She also kept... More

The main house and grounds were beautiful. It was great seeing how small the house really was. It was also neat seeing the slave quarters and getting a better idea about their living environment. The guide, however, recited from her memorized script. The. Entire. Time. I would be interested to see the Whitney Plantation or some other plantation where more... More

This was our first visit to a real working (sugarcane, not cotton) Plantation. We all learned many new & unrealized historical facts. There are many building on the National Historical Register. The Grandkids, 8 years (M) & 11 years (F) never lost interest & actually asked questions. Great Tour Guide, She was very knowledgeable.

Drove out from New Orleans to visit Evergreen as we particularly wanted to see the slave quarters. We found it no problem using a sat nav. The gates were not open when we arrived, but we just pulled in front of the gates and waited. The girl who came and opened the gates was not at all friendly, and pretty... More

As a child, I remember driving by Evergreen and being awestruck by the majesty of the grand staircase. I was excited to finally see this magnificent mansion, but then shocked to learn that it is not a mansion at all. It is only one room deep. The exterior is a deception and made us all laugh about how people even... More

In 3 days we visited 6 plantations. This in was the worst one by far. It was not worth the money we paid for the tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and she just did not have her heart into her job. Management either needs to give the guides more training or more money, maybe both. I think they need... More

I chose to visit the Evergreen Plantation over other similar houses because of the original slave quarters and I wanted to know more about slavery and segregation in America following our visit to the amazing and moving civil rights museum in Memphis. I must say the woman who took our money didn't exactly make us feel welcome with her lack... More

First of all be prepared to pay with cash! The lady wasn't very friendly and was short when we asked about the tour. Also once the tour starts you will have to drive in your own car to the plantation. Granted it's not far but just be aware of this. Now the plantation on the outside was breathtaking but on... More

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
