We took two teenagers and two pre-teens. They enjoyed the visit and history of the plantation. We attended the Gullah presentation where we learned about the language and culture which was interesting. The presenter stayed after the program and answered all of the kids' questions. The trolley tour of the plantation was amazing. Our guide had family that worked on... More

The Boone Hall Plantation was explained to be the oldest working, & living plantation in the US. With that being said, it shouldn't have been a surprise when we were only shown 3 rooms out of a 10,000 sq feet home. That in itself was very disappointing. However, with a family actually still living in the home, I guess it... More

We enjoyed the house tour, galla presentation, and learning the history of the plantation. The grounds were beautiful!

We took a tour trolley from Charleston to Boone Hall. We connected with the trolley at the Charleston Visitor's Center and had about a 20 minute ride to the plantation. The plantation "driveway" entrance is everything you would want, lush green pastures with polo ponies grazing and huge live oak trees with beautiful Spanish moss. Once at the plantation, we... More

Driving up to this Plantation was spectacular because this is what I always thought of when I thought of what it must have been to live in a southern plantation. Plan on spending about three hours here because there is much to see and history to learn about the workings of a plantation and you get all of the history... More

Spent about three hours touring Boone-Hall. The tour included a look inside the main house, a walk down Slave Row, a Gullah Culture presentation which was the highlight and a motorized trolley tour of the working farm and produce fields. The drive up the lane lined with oak trees is quite beautiful. Well worth visiting and reasonably priced.

Driving up to Boone Hall is everything you want out of a South Carolina plantation. The perfectly spaced towering oak trees set the tone for the historical tour. I enjoyed the grounds tour, driving back through all the various fields, past an old movie set and through one of the biggest event holding fields I've seen. The house tour is... More

All the talks were most informative especially about the Gullah culture. Enjoyed bus ride around the grounds. Self guided tour of slave homes interesting.

Boone Hall Plantation is one of the oldest working plantations in the United States. The beautiful grounds, the house, and the original brick slave quarters provide a scenic backdrop for a series of educational videos, photographs and artifacts depicting the life of ""Gullah" slaves in the Charleston area. If you stop by, make sure to see the live performance describing... More

My family really liked visiting Boone plantation. We mostly went to see the driveway/house/slave quarters and to take pictures of our girls. Taylor gave us a tour of the house and she was friendly and informative. Next we toured to brick slave quarters and found them very interesting. We left there and walked to get on a buggy ride that... More
