  • I think Logan deserves a raise or something because he did an absolutely amazing job. He made me and my family feel welcomed and not just like tourist. He connected with us, and made sure we could add any comments and questions at all time. He absolutely knows the story about the beautiful space. Lastly, something that really stood out to me was the fact that he even shared a personal experience working at the plantation with us which made us feel even more comfortable!!!!!!!! I definitely recommend getting to know the guide and just chill with them while they tell you about the place! It really makes you want to stay longer. Overall, Logan did an amazing job and was super kind to my little brother and my non fluent English speaker mother, so much patience and understanding. He. Deserves. The. Best. (All the staff members were super nice to us and the place was really organized and welcoming) :D
  • Beautiful plantation with so much history. Gift shop was very cute with a lot to choose from. Restrooms were clean. The plantation itself was fantastic and worth the trip but only giving 3 stars due to the tour guide. She was young and not the greatest at story telling or presenting information in an interesting way. 3 different times she used cuss words and didn't come off friendly or approachable with questions.
