I will start by saying that I will never forget my experience at the Evergreen Plantation. I have to many plantations across the south and this by far the most well preserved of all. The main house, the outbuildings and the slave cabins look as if they are still in operation. But equally as amazing as the property was our... More

I would absolutely recommend this tour. But if you stay downtown make sure that you allow yourself plenty of time to get there as traffic is pretty bad. But it gets better once you leave the city. The tour itself took me back in time. What a wonderful preservation of our history. And thank you to the owners for opening... More

Because this plantation is still used to grow sugar cane and by the owner for entertaining, check the website and call ahead for tours so you aren't disappointed and frustrated. My favorite part was seeing the old slave cabins among the mature oak trees. If not for the mosquitoes, I would've spent even more time to explore. The guided tour... More

WARNING....if you plan on touring this plantation come prepared. They do not accept credit cards. The less that cheerful attendant behind the counter seemed unapologetic for this and was quick to add that a 15 minute (round trip) to the next town would provide an ATM for our solution to not having enough cash or a checkbook. It was very... More

If you are interested in antibellum life on a Mississippi River Plantation this tour is a huge value. Not only are there lovely buildings to see on the working farm but our guide, Desiree, provided 90 minutes of pure entertainment and education. We learned about property taxes, the code Noir, marrying your cousin and much more. Desiree was a delight!... More

This was truly the best tour I've ever taken! Our tour guide Desiree was so engaging and knowledgeable; the grounds are beautiful; the history so interesting. The $20 is completely worth it!

My dad and I had been wanting to do the Evergreen Plantation tour for ages because a long long time ago we were related to one of the former owners. Yes, yours truly had a distant relative that owned this plantation in the 1900's and he was even the one who named it 'Evergreen'. Someone fetch me a hoop skirt... More

My husband and I went on the 2pm tour and loved it. Our tour guide was Greg, and was very knowledgeable, funny and willing to answer any question the group had. The tour took around 1.5 hours and was well worth the money. They only have two tours per day and start on time.

I wanted to compliment a wonderful experience and our tour guide Miss Desiree. She was an exceptional historian and a very kind soul. She was able to describe and take us back in time to life on the Plantation. We even learned to sing AMEN and dance down the oak grove mimicking cutting sugar cane. The 22 original Slave Cabins...
