Amazing history. Our tour guide was a wealth of knowledge. I have read a lot about the history of slavery but learned so much more. I recommend this for everyone.

An eye opening experience! Tour guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. I originally went to have my kids learn more history, but I ended up enjoying it more than them!

Crystal, our guide, was able to answer all questions. She did not try to make plantation life glamorous or easy. She even advised us locals to see another plantation before it is demolished next year. It was an interesting tour and hot as it was, it gave me an idea of the conditions experienced by the enslaved residents. The tour also gave us an overview of the plantation owners and their complicated lives.
