Our tour guide was extremely accommodating. She gave my son additional information since we were there for a school project.

We had been recommended to visit and when we did get there we were greeted by wonderful staff in the booking office. Fran our guide was fabulous and very informed and engaged he involved us in every aspect of the tour. Whilst the tour of the Plantation House was lovely we do feel that more could have been explained and explored about the workers at the Plantation. Without the work force of slaves the Plantation would not have been prosperous.
