Frank was an excellent guide! He was so knowledgeable about all aspects of the plantation's history and answered questions fully and respectfully.

The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The tour included the entire house and most of the buildings on the property. It was a great activity to learn about history. I plan on repeating my experience when I visit another vacation.

This is the 2nd time we took this tour. Unfortunately we were disappointed this time around. We went with a large group that had not gone before. The guide was very nice but her voice was very quiet and she didn't have her lines memorized. She didn't give a lot of details and would start telling us about something and forget what she was talking about. She also forgot the rooms she took us to. She didn't really discuss the history of the family very much. I felt bad for the other people in our group who didn't get to enjoy this wonderful plantation as I did on my previous visit.
