Too little time yet informative!!

Learning the painful history of plantations and celebrating the ongoing efforts of changes in progressive modern day livings.
Response from Host, July 2023
Snap! Tours focuses on letting visitors see many different places in the same tour, while concentrating on the locations' true history. Visiting 4 plantations and the oldest church in the South is a big undertaking for a 1/2 day tour... but you can brag that you didn't visit just one plantation (whose tours take most of the day)!

Lee Ann was awesome. It was a great way to see all the Plantations and get some history without all the walking
Fun time!
