Cameron was very knowledgable about the history of the plantation and all its inhabitants. Truly enjoyed the tour and hearing Cameron tell the rich colorful stories.

This Creole sugarcane plantation was an interesting stop. It was run by four generations of Creole women since 1804! The Creole plantation was different as it was painted bright colors and usually one story and made of Cypress wood. We enjoyed our tour here learning...More

The other plantations felt like you were in someone else's home. This tour felt more corporate and less personal. It's a great tour but there are large crowds and the tours are much bigger than other tours.

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.
