My wife and I just returned from an excellent tour of Boone Hall Plantation in Mt. Pleasant SC. Origionally we had not planned on visiting this place since the mansion, the 4th home on the site, was built in 1935. But what a surprise. The docent, Bob, was knowledgeable about many things, not just about the planation, engaging and enthusiastic.... More

Seeing what a large plantation is like and dispelling many myths/misunderstandings about life in the pre-civil ware era is worth the trip. And yes, the drive up the entrance is spectacular!

Very fun and great tour at the plantation - definitely do the house tour. Our guide was Bob who was super. Even better though was the Gullah tour - definitely do that - fantastic insight into a significant culture of the lowcountry.

This was our first tour of a Southern Plantation, so perhaps we are a bit biased, but we really enjoyed the experience. The admission was $20, which sounds expensive but is what most plantations in the area seem to charge, and the grounds are really well maintained so they probably need the money to keep the property going. The entrance... More

This plantation is incredibly well maintained, their historical sorry telling of the slaves tales is insightful, revealing and incredibly touching! The slaves' quarters, are very well maintained and they reveal so much! The mansion's tour is also a must do and their historians are also fantastic!

Took this tour with my 13 yr daughter on a rather cold but sunny day. The house tour is was a bit more limited than I had imagined as you really only see the foyer and two rooms on the 1st floor. Pretty but not enough of a reason to visit- plus this is not the original house- it was... More

Our visit to Boone Hall Plantation was more than expected. The tour of the plantation house was a bit disappointing (only four rooms), but the architecture and furnishings were historically spectacular. The guide was informed and provided a comprehensive description of the history of the plantation. The Gullah presentation was outstanding and provided a historical context for the tour of... More

This step back into history is well organized and engaging. Boone Hall Plantation is in a gorgeous Old South setting. We planned to stay for a short time , but we found it so interesting that we stayed four hours touring the home, taking the tram, investigating the cabins full of information and enhanced by the Gullah performance. Good way... More

The drive to the main house after you pay your 20.00 per person is breath taken. After that we were disappointed, the tour of the house consisted of 4 rooms and you only spent about 5 minutes in each room. The house is lived in part of the year by the owner so you are not allowed to view the... More

Entry is a little pricey, but worth it. My partner and I spent an afternoon here. We toured the house, went on a carriage ride though the property. Both were guided and informative. The Gullah show is an experience mixing history and performance in the spoke word tradition. I would recommend staying for it. The cafe leaves things to be... More
