It was very informative but would have liked the tour to give more of a background of what slaves endured instead of the “hardships” of the slave owners

Very interesting tour. The grounds were beautiful. They did a very good job of highlighting the lives of the slaves.

The overall experience was great! You have to tour the inside of the house and you have to stop at the gift shop.

Our docent Anne was excellent. So glad we were able to take the tour .

Wonderful tour and very knowledgeable tour guides.
