I'm honestly still processing this experience. It was incredibly moving, but also extremely informative and well done. I thought I knew a lot about this ugly part of American history, but the tour guide at the Plantation provided context and details that I had never considered before. I only wish we had more time at the actual plantation. We wanted to spend time walking around the grounds but had to get back on the bus to go pick up the folks from the other plantation tour and get back to the city. I highly recommend this experience.

Actual tour of Whitney plantation was excellent. Tour guide provided both facts and analysis. Would have liked a bit more time to look at each site on my own.

Incredible historian who walked us around the Whitney Plantation with personal stories of the slaves that lived there and their experiences. Also, talked about living conditions during and after abolition on the plantation. The architecture of the different cultures that lived and owned the plantations. I appreciated this tour as it was very personal and a powerful way to share a history that is not often taught.

This was rated just short of excellent because there was only time to take the walking portion, but not explore the other exhibits that were located inside. There should be ample time included in the trip to allocate both the tour and the exhibits. The walking tour itself was very informative and gave voice and perspective to the enslaved that is rarely heard or acknowledged.

The Plantation was well organized and the tour guide was great. The Plantation is intense, and well worth the visit.

We really enjoyed our Whitney Plantation Tour. The story of how plantations operated from the perspective of the slaves is a very important part of history that needs to be told. I am very glad that this history is being preserved at Whitney Plantation. Our tour guide on the Gray Line bus was great as was our tour guide at the Plantation. They had umbrellas available to use free of charge to help with the heat which came in handy. There were also several misting stations throughout the Plantation. Highly recommend this tour!
