    This is a sweeping gone with the wind style plantation. Gorgeous trees and grounds. Quarters where they kept slaves and the history.

    The tour was great. Lots to see.

    Don't do an all day tour - it gets repetitive. A ways out of town you ride in a van to get there. Just do one or two of the big plantations and you'll get the history and it will be super cool.

    gorgeous plantation with lots of history... No need to buy a ticket if you aren't going to do the main house tour

    This is the classic plantation experience you see on tv and the movies.

    Really good tour. And really good mint julep, post-tour. Can't wait to come back

    Do the tour as it's fascinating. Nice to see them highlight the human cost of the slavery used to build the plantation in the exhibits, rather than just brush it aside.

    Most plantations are tour only... And cost around $20

    It's cute that the people giving the tours are dressed up. The mansion is nice inside but the real treat is the view of the Oak trees leading to the house. You can drive around and see that for free.

    Day 3 of Antebellum South: Touring the historic plantation and its beautiful grounds under the natural wonder of 300-year-old oak trees while learning about the history of this Southern estate.

    Believed to be haunted by Louise Roman the daughter of the man who had the home built in the 1830's. She is dressed all in black and can be seen in the master bedroom or the widow's walk.

    Get your mint julep before the tour and end it drunk.

    Mint julep, very sweet

    As a local I'm here often. I'm known by a few of the tour guides. Needless to say I love the history. The tour and the grounds. I can never have enough pics of the grounds. Aim for the interesting!

    The gift shop sells slave teeth!

    That awkward moment when your tour guide is still fighting the Civil War...like build a bridge

    Morgen Clarey · August 8, 2013
  • Zachary O.

    Gorgeous and worth the trip! If they didn't talk about slavery before, they certainly do now. In fact, our guide reiterated the fact that this entire place was built on the back of slaves many times.

    Zachary Ottinger · August 1, 2013
  • Iza

    It is a typical tourist trap. The tour guides are inexperienced and have nothing interesting to say. Take a photo from the road of beautiful oak alley and go to Laura plantation instead!

  • Gary D.

    Recommend that if you come by car, try to arrive early. Hours between 9am to 10:30am are peaceful, with only a modest number of visitors, often by yourself.

    So beautiful. The Mint Juleps are to die for!

    Beautiful, but the tour is kind of insulting. No real history unless you are super interested in how to make feather mattresses or run dinner parties. Didn't even say the word slavery.Very sanitized.

    Leah Weinstein · July 6, 2012
  • Erin

    The tour literally whitewashes the history of slavery that is so key to understanding Plantation life. If you're interested in historical accuracy, go to Laura Plantation down the road.

    Beautiful plantation!

    If the place looks familiar, its where Brad Pitt's character, Louis, starts out in "Interview with a Vampire."

    Thought I could easily get the "courter's candles" elsewhere in gift shops on Royal Street but no luck! Pick them up here if you're interested.... Read more

    Restraunt was sub par. Low quality food and service. Stay away from the etoufee.

    The restaurant isn't that great. The crawfish didn't taste fresh... Also it was a bit pricey for the quality.

    Ray Hancock · April 21, 2011

    On your next visit, take time to enjoy the restaurant and sample some plantation cooking.
