The tour was amazing

about 2 years ago
We loved this tour. I have three boys (ages 12, 11, & 6) who really got a lot out of this (the older ones more than the younger one) and enjoyed learning about the history. The house was gorgeous and the tour guide was so good and full of knowledge. It really was one of the highlights of our trip.

A Labor of Love!

We really enjoyed our tour of St Joseph Plantation... We were amazed at how much work had been done to restore the plantation. Equally as amazing is the fact that three families, all descendants of plantation owners, have banded together to ensure that their plantations continue to produce sugar cane crops in the families’ tradition. Miss Diane was a wonderful and gracious guide, and is certainly not afraid of hard work. And her personal recollections and stories of her family’s history provided a unique perspective to our tour: it wasn’t just history, it was something near and dear to her heart! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and recommend this tour to anyone wishing to not only learn about the history of a plantation, but actually see one in action!

My tour guide was exceptional. Very informative and welcoming. I appreciated all of the information and being able to walk around the grounds when the tour was over. Also, the information on sugar cane farming was great! I study farming so I appreciated that piece. Thank you so much!
