Rich in history
Mary_S, Sept 2023
Great day at the plantation. It is so beautiful and so rich in history. The house tour was good. We did not take the wagon tour of the property but it looked fun. Wonderful place to visit.
Very interesting and and we save an eagle

I enjoyed the presentation by the storyteller Ms Minerva . The seated guided tour of the plantation was informative and interesting, the garden next to the big house was beautiful. The sad part was the slaves quarters where one of those very small buildings housed 10 people at a time. I just can’t believe how humans can’t be so cruel to other humans. It’s part of our history and we cannot forget.

The Splendor of Boone Hall
Sharon_T, Aug 2023
We loved our visit to Boone Hall Plantation. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. From the tour of the house, tractor ride through the property, the informative talks at each section and the overall beauty of the grounds, it was amazing.
Must visit on your next stop to Charleston.

My husband and I went to Charleston for the first time this weekend and Boone Hall was on our list of things to see. The Avenue of Oaks is every bit just as beautiful as it is in the pictures and movies. That was probably my favorite part. The tour of the main house lasted about 30-35 minutes and provided quite a bit of information. The tractor tour was interesting. Bring a mask to where if you are sensitive to the dust because the tractor kicks up a lot of it! The presentation on the history of the Gullah people and culture was great too.

My family and I enjoyed the visit and learning the history of the plantation. The staff were all very knowledgeable and kind, and I enjoyed learning about the crops, the past, and the families.

Our visit to Boone Hall Plantation
Nancy_H, Aug 2023
The grounds were beautiful and the slaves homes were very interesting. We were very upset that the main home were only shown three rooms and pictures were not allowed.
Ronald_P, Aug 2023
The talking tour snd the Gulla experience with Frank. It was authentic and not sugarcoated. The House Tour was good as well.
Worthwhile to visit while in Charleston.
Pamela_F, Aug 2023
All inclusive ticket included a wagon ride around the property, house tour, tour of slave cabins and gullah story. Worthwhile afternoon to learn the history of slavery and the plantation. We took uber from downtown and was under $20 each way.

Gullah information/experience. The grounds were beautiful , especially the oak lined drive. There was also a cafe fie lunch and a tractor ride around property explaining how the farm is still being used today
Richard_B, July 2023
This was a great tour. I couldn't believe the experience and the cost. It is something you want to spend the day exploring! So much history! So much revitalization to the plantation and I loved how they used it as a teaching environment for students! A must see and do tour!
Lovely day with family.

We were intrigued with the continuous evolution of the plantation over the course of 340 years. Such an interesting historic site.
