What People Say…
Excellent way to spend an afternoon. Our guide, Destiny, was fabulous. She was warm and friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy what she was doing. We got there about 2:45 (they were to close at 4:00), but we were not in any way rushed through the tour. And the gift shop was still open when we were finished so that I could get my magnets (which I collect) and a book about the plantation. I have already recommended the tour to others.
Connie was our tour guide through the plantation. Her local charm and demeanor was delightful. After the tour, I was informed she is one of the newest guides. You couldn’t tell. Connie interacted with the group and enjoyed answering questions. Even odd ones people were asking. The history presented was much better than Laura and Oak Alley. More detailed stories.The plantation home is beautiful and worth stopping to visit. I wasnt sure if there was a tip jar for the guide at the end of the tour but it’s ok to hand them a tip. They also have envelopes and a box to leave a tip by the two cabins. If the gift shop was grandeur, I would have given this plantation five stars.
Visited here to get a perception of what life used to be like on a plantation, and we certainly weren’t disappointed. We arrived for the first tour on a Sunday morning, and as there was no one else on the tour, we had a personal tour from Bonnie. Great tour guide with lots of interesting facts and history about the plantation.
Highly recommended tour.
Such a neat tour. The staff went out of their way to accommodate our group even though we were running late. They kept the gift shop open so we were able to buy our souvenirs. Loved that they dressed the parts of Southern Belles.
