The view, introduction, history, the staff best customer service. Good for kids and adults. Sad stories that describe the beginning of our nation and how such still in our days are a strong feeling for what happen then. And we are just talking about abolition less than 200 years or segregation less than 60 years.

Une guide française nous a beaucoup faciliter pour la compréhension et c'est une magnifique plantation on en oublierait presque que des esclaves y ont travaillé

The tour was surface level. The attempt to normalize and make the plantation owners these great people was disheartening. The slave owners were wicked, evil and indecent animals. If they truly believed the religion they followed, they are burning in hell. The tour should have shed more light on the lives of the slaves and just been more transparent.
