From the start our guide/docent, Kyle, brought the Creole experience to life for us. The walk through the plantation building and grounds was made palpable with the stories and histories of the family and the times they lived in. A must see.

Very interesting tour but it was a bit rushed. Wish they make the tour 15 minutes longer and the guide would be less rushed. We could actually have time to take it all in. Would be 5 stars if it wasnt for that

Some places you can walk freely and others I would suggest the tour as you get to see so much more. Most of the plantations make you pay as they are all guided. Cemeteries some are free and others are tour only. For free you... More

Sorry, we also drove. I would call the Plantation. It was an easy drive and care rentals reasonable for the day--when booked in advance.
