Our tour guide, Beverly, was very nice and clear with her narrative.
There was a balance of history and being clear that slavery was/is wrong.
I’m thankful that history is preserved in this plantation!

Unfortunately we took a 3:30 tour during the week. That left us no time to explore the gift shop or attend the indigo presentation. Our guide was wonderful and gave us a good idea of the history of this hauntingly beautiful place.

We had a wonderful tour guide who was very knowledgeable, energetic, professional and personable. We loved the grounds, the way they were clearly cared for, and the way history is kept alive for educational purposes. The gift shop was full of treasures and many one of a kind items - not a typical tourist trap or tchotchkes.

I had no expectation coming in; I had never done a plantation tour before. It was typical of tours through places like Mount Vernon and other historical homes. Evelyn was delightful.
