The plantation house tour included only the first floor and presented a nice summary of the history of the plantation. Go into each slave cabin and push the button to hear the informative narrations about slave life. Do NOT miss the Gullah presentation at posted times! We did not have time to do the bus tour through the plantation fields.... More

We visited Boone Hall recently because we had never visited a southern plantation. The property and grounds are beautiful. Even though the mansion is not original we enjoyed our tour of the home and the historical information shared by our guide. The trolley tour driver who drove us around the entire property also shared lots of great information. We toured... More

As your car enters the world famous Avenue of Oaks facing Boone Hall Mansion, you are transported back to another time and era. The view is breathing. The oak trees along this entrance way were planted in 1743 and it has taken them over 200 years to create this shade canopy. There is much to do and see at this... More

We chose to go to Boone Hall Plantation after reading a flyer at the hotel. It turned out to be a great choice. The tour guide, Eddie, was so interesting and amusing ...the grounds are beautiful and the historic interactive presentation was very well done. It was well worth the time spent there!

My second review and added more pictures. You will notice the Henderson cabin which was in the movie "Queen" with Hallie Berry. A Ryan Gosling movie also was filmed there. Lots of history.

My mother and I were able to visit both Boone Hall and Magnolia Plantation while in Charleston, and Boone Hall was our favorite by far. The house tour was really interesting, and the tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. She welcomed our questions, and answered each of them thoroughly. We also took a trolley tour of the entire plantation,... More

Boone Hall Plantation is the only (I believe) working plantation in the area, and has been used as a location in several television shows and movies. The house itself is not the original, but was rebuilt in the style of the era (although not a copy of the original). They have thirteen brick slaves' quarters--some of the only slaves' houses...

Probably the best day spent in a tourist destination. So much to see and do, and excellent value at $20.00 per adult. This is a MUST DO if you are in the Charleston area. Apparently the admission fee is less than half that of the Magnolia Plantation, with as much to see and do.

I'm glad I read the positive reviews and discarded the negative ones as this was a most interesting experience. No it is not a home built in the 1700's but the property has a fascinating history and is beautiful! The tour guides were well versed and informative and the information provided in graphics was interesting and well done. It is... More

Even driving to the museum is quite tranquil because there are trees and moss hanging everywhere creating a tunnel of some sort. The tour of the mansion was pretty cool and gave you an inside look into how it was living back in the 1800's. The slave houses were cool as well and provides interesting historical anecdotes. For example, african... More
