While in New Orleans, I wanted to see a plantation home. I had a few to choose from, but chose this place in the end. I wanted to see a beautiful home, but I also wanted to see the 22 intact slave cabins in the back of the property. I'm pleased I chose to tour this home. The home is... More

Kevin led my tour and he was super informative, tons of fun and great with all types and ages of people. He does a great job communicating the challenging history within the context of what was going on in the country at the time. And, his knowledge of everything from the trees to the dishware was awesome. Highly recommended!

We spent a morning here on our trip with our 12 and 16 year olds. The tour guide, Desiree, was really fun and kept things lively. We learned so much about plantations and slavery and how everything fit together back in those days. I recommend this tour!

I visited Evergreen Plantation recently with a friend. Naturally, we came to see this plantation to learn about our history and also because it was used in the movie D'Jango and we wanted to see "Big Daddy's" house. I am so glad that we came. We were greeted in the visitor's center by Desiree and she led us on a... More

My husband got up at 4:30am and drove to the plantation to get the earliest tour. It was still hot outside but so worth the sweat! I've had the picture of the path of trees in my living room for several years and my husband knows I love that picture. So he surprised me with a day trip here to... More

Evergreen Plantation and all the outbuildings were amazing, but Desiree is the best tour guide I have ever seen! I have never heard the slave story told quite like she did it, and her message was a timely one for our country. I understand old Creole culture in a way I never would have without her. The story of the... More

We planned to do two plantation tours but ended up just doing the Evergreen Plantation tour. The tour guide Desiree was really good and so full of fantastic stories about life and times of the plantation that we decided not to do the second tour.

This was by far the best tour of a plantation I have ever taken. It was just the right mix of facts, stories, and history, presented in a most entertaining fashion by our tour guide Desiree. No one in our group of 13 started developed that vacant look in his/her eyes that I've seen so many times on similar tours.... More

My mom and I ended up at Evergreen accidentally -- we had extra time before visiting the Whitney Plantation (their next tour was sold-out). We were so fortunate to have Desiree as a guide. She gave an unforgettable, one woman show of a tour which presented the results of her careful research and storytelling. She was charismatic, hilarious, powerful, and... More

Evergreen Plantation is very beautiful especially on the exterior. I loved the donkeys and the spanish moss that hung from the trees. In the back are original slave quarters with ownership papers. These papers literally named each one of the slaves and how much they were bought for. I found these things surreal. It's one of those places that there... More
