Kyle is the best tour guide!
Finding the plantation on River Road was very easy and there was signs everywhere directing you to the plantation. When you pull into the gravel parking lot it is easy to find a parking space and then enter the gift shop to check in. We went on a day where it was raining on and off, so I would suggest bug spray when you go. Our guide, Kyle was wonderful! Very upbeat, loud (we were in a large group)and made the information interesting to listen to! Our tour started in the basement of the house and then we walked up stairs. Room by room there is much to learn about the owners and family of this plantation. Once outside, we were able to also tour the grounds with our guide and learn about how the slaves were treated and where they lived. Learning about the lineage of the slaves and the women that ran this plantation was the most fascinating aspects for me personally. An added bonus was finding out that "Briar Rabbit" was written there! Thank you so much to Kyle for sharing his knowledge. This is a wonderful stop on Old River Road!

Great a most see
We had a great time, our tour guide was great and really knew her stuff. Lindle I believe was her name she was awesome and very passionate about the history there and in Louisiana. I had several teenagers with me that did not even want to go but by the end they were happy they did.

Amélie was our guide and she was absolutely amazing! Excellent sensibilisation about the dark story of slavery and the past of the plantation. Her French is impeccable and her smile makes the visit even more pleasant. Highly recommended!

Best tour I have ever been on
This was one of the best tours I have ever been on. Our tour guide I think her name was KRYSTAL was the best. Talked about everything and answered to the best of her ability every question anyone had

Very Informative
You first walk into the gift shop, where you could purchase souvenirs and also where you'd check in/purchase tickets. The tours are first come first serve so you may have to wait a little bit for the next tour if they're busy, but they do have a museum with a large amount of interesting information about the history of the slaves who where bought/sold and past owners of the plantation. The tour is guided so there will be a guide with you at all times. The tour was very informative, and they do a great job showing you what it was like living on the plantation.

Logan was an excellent guide during the tour, he brought back plantation life and helped us imagine how life was back then.

Beautiful Location
This is a very beautiful location with a lot of parking. The signs make it super easy to find as well. They’re first come first serve on their tours which means there may be a little bit of a wait prior to the tour but they do have a museum with a wealth of information on every aspect of the period in time. They also have a great gift shop. The tour was a wealth of information as well and I really like the balance of information that they provide to help show the dynamics of the life on the plantation during slavery. They really show the slavery aspect as well as the planters life and the relationship between the two in their tour.

Knowledgeable and Thorough
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.
