I was visiting family in the area. Took my mother. Elevator was not working and she was unable to view upstairs of home. She was very disappointed. She should have been refunded cost of tour.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Great balance of the stories of the lives of the enslaved and the owners. Beautiful home and grounds.

Beverly, my guide was fantastic! She answered many additional questions I had and was very knowledgeable. The presentation presenting the history of the plantation owners, plantation, and the slaves in the context of local, state, country and world events was by far the best I have experienced (I have toured 6 plantations on this trip). My recommendation to other travelers would be to tour this plantation first if doing multiple tours or to make this your top tour! I also do hope they are able to experience Beverly's presentation! I appreciated the experience!
