The weather barely cooperated, but our tour guide Ronnie did. She was kind and patient. The plantation is beautifully maintained and well preserved. It is like going back it time. So glad that I was able to take this in.

Great trip to Evergreen. Our tour guide was one of the most knowledgable people. Her American history was amazing. We could have listened to her for ages. A great trip for us all
