Loved to scenery and the wagon ride around the entire plantation! We had a great guide and he kept us all laughing and entertained! He also knew his Charleston history! The house tour was OK... This version of the house isn't that old but it was rebuilt trying to keep the original period look intact. The grounds were gorgeous! We... More

This is a gorgeous location to visit and really see how things were for plantation life. It's not as grandioso as I thought it would be, but I guess considering those days, it was very grand. The history of the owners, slaves and how they all operated on the Plantation was very very interesting. The property itself is gorgeous, and... More

Stopped by the farm stand and picked up some fresh vegetables. The prices are a little high but the berries were yummy. Cashier told us u pick started the next day so we got up early and picked about 20 pounds before heading home. Everyone very friendly and the berries were so good.

The food market is great but pricey. The food is always excellent. Across the street at the U-Pick stand, the fresh fruit and veggies are awesome. The employees are awesome and go out of their way to make sure the experience is worthwhile.

the tour is not worth the money....it is a working plantation and the land is ugly- unless you want to see untamed jungle and rows of vegetables being planted. The home is just ok....the aubergene color in the living room is hideous as is the furniture, the dark red is hideous in the dining room as well as the furnishings-... More

Make no mistake: this was a very worthwhile half-day spent and reasonably priced. The beautiful, long live-oak-lined entrance road leading to the mansion. The eight or nine remaining original slave quarters (brick cabins). The one-woman show that explained the "Gullah" culture. And the motorized touring carriage around the grounds explaining the land, the history and the crops. But oddly, the... More

Absolutely amazing!! As a local and frequent viator to Boone Hall, this is a must visit for all. Still one of the few operational plantations today. Lots of events held here throughout the year. Be sure to check you calendar when visiting.

This line from the incredible Gullah presentation is still resonating with us. Be sure to take that in....it took the afternoon's experience from "pretty good" to "fantastic." Especially after spending time going through the slave cabins with exhibits that traced the African American experience in the U.S....the program by the Gullah Girl storyteller was simply riveting. I was in tears... More
