“Fascinating Frogmore!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Where do I begin?? Lynette, our tour guide, was amazingly well-read, informative, objective, approachable, professional, efficient, personable & entertaining...this is a tour NOT to be missed!! My 10 year old daughter greatly enjoyed picking the cotton & even brought back enough samples for her entire class -- as they are soon to begin studying the US Civil War -- The highlight was that she learned so much firsthand knowledge w/out realization thereof -- a double positive!

“Expensive for families”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

We missed the small sign at first, but made our way there. Two tour buses were already walking around the buildings and we joined in about halfway thru the historic tour. The guide was informative and the buildings interesting as the 5 and 14 year-old children tried to imagine life 150 years ago. We weren't able to see the cotton gin as they closed at 3 pm and there was no time. However, we learned that we'd have watched a video as it only operates in Sept/Oct.

We did feel that it was expensive if you do both tours, ($22 adult, $10 for babies & toddlers) especially for a pre-schooler. Not sure we'd return at those prices.

“A first class tour with the owner”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Frogmore plantation tour was fascinating. Our tour guide was the owner and definitely take the tour with her as her historical perspective and interest in the land is fantastic. The video was very interesting in both current and historical perspective of cotton. There is very little waste in the production of cotton. Under Armour has worked together with American cotton producers to develop Charged Cotton for some of their apparel. Support America cotton and buy that product when possible.

“Fantastic Tour!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The Frogmore Plantation is a very complete depiction of what a cotton plantation would have been like during salvery. Walking through the buildings fills out the tour very well with very impressive visual aids allowing one to proceed back in time to picture what life would be like. Even the video showing how cotton is produced using modern equipment on the plantation today was fascinating. We went during the off-season, so we had to call ahead to schedule, and the owners of the plantation were very accomodating to open for one special tour for the day. I figured it would be a short tour, but 3 hours passed with a flash since the information was so interesting. Definitely worth the trip to see this well preserved gem!

“Must do if visiting natchez area”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We scheduled a last minute tour and this was the highlight of our Natchez trip. It was interesting and informative. The tourguide was the owner and she really seemed passionate about the history of the place. We loved it.
