The tour of The Good Hope estate was one of our favourite parts of our honeymoon on the Caribbean islands. The staff were very friendly, well organised and knowledgeable.
One thing though... Our tour guide talked about how "nice, well mannered and courteous" the plantation owner was. That he was "good to his slaves and there was never a revolt". Call me crazy but he was STILL a slave owner! I just felt the tour guide (a local woman) was doing her own heritage a disservice by sugar coating the true facts so we all could have a nice afternoon and not get upset by the real history.
I don't want all the gory details but I'm not an idiot either!
