This was an amazing tour, very informative, you can see how southern slaves were treated and housed, and used for breeding. Still I found it a good tour, it kept it real, they had favorite skaves and not so favorite.

Sorry, we also drove. I would call the Plantation. It was an easy drive and care rentals reasonable for the day--when booked in advance.
