The plantation is beautiful and the tour was very enjoyable and multi-faceted, with two brief presentations/talks by different guides before the main tour. We learned about the lives and uprising of enslaved people as well as the families who lived in the main home, which is absolutely gorgeous. Our main tour guide, Susan, was clearly passionate about the subject and really added a lot to the experience. She was knowledgeable, friendly and never once had to consult notes. I'd absolutely recommend a visit here — and since it's the closest to the city of New Orleans and the airport, it makes for an especially easy side trip. In addition, the facility requires face masks and social distancing for guests and staff, which helps to make it a safer experience during the pandemic.

The Jefferson Room was our favorite little “gem!” This tour was informative without dragging on for hours. We love that locals are trying to preserve regional history, also employees/volunteers seemed to genuinely care.

The tour was excellent and gave a good overview of all aspects of the history of the plantation. Beverly was an excellent guide and was very engaging for our 7 and 5 year old children. The oak trees were also amazing to see, over 200 years old.
