Every time we visit Charleston we visit Boone Hall as it is our favourite plantation of the area. This must have been our sixth visit. The highlight is Jackie's Gullah presentation - it thrills us every time. The coach tour too is interesting - to see what is being grown on the plantation and explanations of how the irrigation system... More

This was a very nice place, the tours were very good and the tour guides did a great job. We enjoyed the Gullah the most she went into a lot of history. Also did some singing.

There are several plantations to pick from. I recommend this one for several reasons. The oak lined drive to the house is incredibly gorgeous, and you can easily imagine what it would be like to live there 150 years ago. You see a ditch that was built to protect the city during the Civil War. The house is rebuilt, but... More

We spent a great fall afternoon at Boone Hall Plantation with a group of friends. The beautiful lane bordered by live oaks and a row of original brick slave quarter houses leads you to the mansion of Boone Hall Plantation...which was built in the 1936....Oh... The house is in a gorgeous setting, but I wasn't interested in a building not... More

The house tour was only 3 rooms and the foyer. While on the tour we learned that this wasn't the original home of the plantation. When asked if there was a photo of the original home, we were told, "No that the original was an old farm house." I'm not sure why the guide was dressed in antebellum period clothes... More

Very informative tour offered. The original slave quarters added to the sense of historic significance and the grounds were well maintained.

Learned all about Gullah culture from our fabulous Orator Emery. He is an excellent actor, historian & talented man who performs a act that you will not soon forget. Don't miss this act before you leave the Plantation. A+ on all Counts. Jane Diane Mullett Austin, TX.

Took the lunch tour. Very interesting tours of the house itself and the grounds. Had the BEST ice cream I have ever had from the little shop there. The grounds were beautiful, the house was incredible and the tour guide we had for the driving tour was second to none. His great grandfather was a slave on the plantation, and... More

The grounds are the primary attraction at Boone Hall, and if it's a nice day, it's worth a trip. (I think it would be pretty miserable on a rainy day, and I just wouldn't go.) It is a "working plantation" but that means "still-producing," so don't get the idea that you're going to see plantation re-enactments or anything like that.... More

Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Boone Hall Plantation was the beautiful view down the line of live oaks as you approach the property. For the reasonable price of 20 dollars you'll have an informative, brief tour of the mansion, which I'm sure you've read is not the original plantation home, and a condensed history lesson as you tour...
