The second plantation we did today and our tour guide, Beverley was fantastic. There were 12 people in our group and she remembered all of them throughout the tour. The house and grounds are very interesting. This one is a recommend as well.

The staff and historians at the plantation were very helpful and passionate about this time. It was a great tour both my 13 and 14 year old girls enjoyed as well.

Friendly and knowledgeable tour guide whose presentation really brought you into the life on this plantation. Excellent restoration of historical settings. I only wish we could have seen some of the live demonstrations.

I've seen lots of plantations in my life, and there was really nothing to make this one stand out. There are some beautiful live oaks on the property. The tour was just average, and I felt like we overpaid for the tour. There was really...More
