Terribly maintained. Terribly managed. Very disappointing. Photos can be very deceiving. Don't even try the restaurant. Terrible food. All the furnishing and the slave quarters are fake. The actual slave cabins were not that close to the property owner's house. Very inauthentically reconstructed.

The Whitney plantation! Hands down the most informational. Itโ€™s more of a museum and than a historical tour within credibly knowledgeable guides.
