This tour is very unique given that the family is giving the tours. They have owned and run this working plantation since 1877! My tour guide was awesome giving very obscure and little known facts. What I liked the best about this tour is once it's over (an hour) you can roam the grounds by yourself which is perfect for those visitors on a tight schedule. I would recommend this tour over some of the bigger tour groups any day.
