Once entering be sure you get a few great pictures of the avenue of oaks. Breathtaking scene. After you park, check the info sheet to be sure you see the Gullah presentation which was excellent so schedule you're other things around that. This is not a Disney place as it is a much more of a down home feel. House... More

It was a very cool venue. It is absolutely beautiful. However, they hosted an Easton Corbin concert and right before he played it stormed very hard. They made everyone leave and the storms did not end until about 11 or 1130. Rather than having him play another day or refunding money they told me that there was a "rain or... More

Loved this experience. All the guides were knowledgeable and interesting to hear. The oak drive is awesome. This is a must do if you have remote interest in history you can live, see, and feel.

We decided to head to Boones Plantation for a late afternoon and were pleasantly surprised how much we could see in a short time. Highly recommend the goolah presentation first and then self guided house tour. There was a concert that evening that we didn't know about and would have stayed! Funny story that the ambassador of the house tour... More

We showed up just in time for the last showing of the house. Ed Hansen was our tour guide and to say he was amazing and knowledgeable is an understatement. the amount is history he knew was just awesome. I can't wait to come back and get another tour and learn more.

We selected this one out of the variety of plantations which one could visit as it seemed to offer the range of things which made for an afternoon tour. The avenue of Spanish moss hung oaks is stunning on a sunny day and is by far the best element. The house itself was built in 1935 so is a copy... More

Boone Hall is a working plantation (many harvesting activities still occur). We took a tour of the plantation and the grounds. Our tour guide was a descendent of one of the slaves that originally worked the Boone Hall fields. The slaves quarters were built by the slaves with reject bricks. If you look closely, you can find many fingerprints in... More

Beautiful place. Lots of intresting history. House tour guide was very friendly & informative. Family members live upstairs so only got to see 4 rooms downstairs but very nice. Trolley ride was great, very informative & covered lots of ground. Also got to see variety of wildlife.

The grounds are beautiful. I enjoyed seeing the original slave homes that are still standing on the property. Make sure you listen to the presentation on the Gullah culture and take the tram ride. Several movies have been filmed at Boone Hall and I really enjoyed hearing about that. A definite must see.
