Our driver out to the plantation and swamp tour,, Gary was amazing!!! It makes a huge difference in the experience when there's a bit of driving involved to have someone with a sense of humor and awesome personality. Everyone at the plantation was friendly and knowledgeable. The oaks at the plantation were amazing. Our swamp boat captain, whose name isn't coming to me right now (he has Bill, lol) was awesome!! Someone else with a sense of humor! Loved the mix of alligator searching with some insight and education. Definitely a must do!
The grounds were beautiful and the tour was great! All the exhibits are very well done and maintained. The slave quarters were very moving. We wished we’d had more time to spend! We didn’t love the transportation- our bus was a bit late for pickup, and extremely late getting us back to the city.
The tour of the plantation house was very interesting. However, the best part of the whole experience was the airboat/swamp ride! The guide that we were with was very informative and a lot of fun. I wish I knew his name so I could recommend him for everyone!
It was a very beautiful plantation. I love that they made it into a way to remember the slaves of the past and the hardships that they endured in a very respectful way.
Loved the two perspectives of the plantation. The owners and the slaves. Two very different experiences at the same place. Airboat was fun and great energy :)
