$20? way too expensive. Still a very pro slavery attitude, explaining how well the slaves really had it back then. Rude tour guide in the mansion. Nice girl at the sign-up desk for the mansion tour, however there isn't any sign-up for the buggy ride around the property thus, when one of the buggies pulls up, everyone runs over to... More

I've wanted to visit the Boone Hall plantation for almost 30 years - ever since watching The North and South miniseries on TV in 1985 and the first sequel in 1988. Who couldn't love watching Patrick Swayze gallop down the avenue of oaks, or return to his beloved Mont Royal, the TV fictional name for Boone Hall plantation? I was... More

The plantation property was beautiful with the very long road of huge Old Oak trees. The house was a disappointment, as it is not the original - it was built in the 1930's.

Throw back in time. Nice grounds and well maintained buildings. Staff well informed of the history of the plantation. Loved the gardens and authentic displays.

My husband and I spent about 4 hours here and saw nearly all of it. The only thing we didn't go into was the Butterfly Pavilion. It's all so beautiful! The tours were great and not more than about 30 mins each. We visited in mid-September and they are setting up for their fall festivities- a corn maze, pumpkin patch... More

It is not perfect, but Boone Hall gives you a good idea of the stark difference between how the plantation owners lived and how their slaves lived. The home is not original, as one of the property owners decided the original wasn't good enough, but does contain some pieces of the original home (doors, moldings, etc). You don't get to... More

If you are an American you should not miss this. It shows a past life in this country that all Americans should see and know about. Absolutely don't miss the Gullah exhibit in the last brick house. Hopefully you will meet Gloria....She was wonderful.

A good place to take the children or just your spouse to see how old Charleston was back in the beginning. Beautiful scenery and wonderful old buildings.
