The tour of Rose Hill Plantation exceeded our expectations and is well worth the tour ticket price. It is more appropriate for adults and older children. In learning about the history of the house and it's occupants over the years, you also learn general history of the times through which the house has existed. That the beautiful house still stands...

Very accommodating and knowledgable staff. Open to the public for tours and private events. Just scheduled my daughter's wedding there.

This is an excellent example of an antebellum mansion. It was very well restored after a fire with many original pieces from descendants. The tour was fascinating and we were delighted to have the chance to speak with the new owners. Visiting here was the highlight of our trip!

This was definitely a big disappointment. It's $25.00 per person, and take cash.... the true history could have been wrapped up in 20 min. The tour shows only 4 rooms and focuses too much on the current owners, I expected a lot more history. ... Oh and it was really boring, everyone was standing in one place for at least... More

I'm so sorry to read Mr. and Mrs. Santos' review that they were "disappointed" with their tour experience of our historic plantation home. Our tour is a one hour historical experience presented by our wonderful trained and knowledgeable docents. Sorry but it cannot be wrapped up in 20 minutes. Anyone looking for Civil War history to be wrapped up in... More

Rose Hill Mansion is an interesting glimpse into antebellum life in SC. Knowledgeable and friendly tour guide, no rushing through the home, wine and treats make you feel like a welcome guest. We met the home owners (who live there in the home) and enjoyed a delightful afternoon of personal and regional history. It was a cold day here and... More

Lovingly restored Antebellum Mansion. Great experience with knowledgeable staff. CROWN GLASS is the name of the antique glass our guide couldn't recall.

Definitely a must see. This tour is unique because you can actually get close and touch items in the home. You are taken through the home by a guide and after that, you can go back and look at items in detail. The homeowner spoke to us after the tour and was very nice. There is a lot of history... More

What a nice place to visit! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Loved looking at the photo album of the before and after pictures. We were able to take our time after the tour and tea and look at the house and grounds. The high point was when the owner of the house, Robin, joined us to answer... More

Wonderful tour. It is rare to visit a historical home that you can actually sit in the chairs and feel the presence of the room. The tour guide was warm and friendly providing the history of the mansion and those who lived there. Her presentation was entertaining and engaging. The tour ended in the dining room with snacks for the... More
