Go early to stay cooler! Wonderful cultural experience! The beauty of the live oaks and the excellence of the staff made this a great experience! Ed Hanson was our tour guide through the home and he made the history of the place easy and fun to digest! The Gullah demonstration was excellent with the story teller giving an excellent spell...

Plan to spend not less than 5 hours. The house is great. You can visit only the ground floor, but it is worth it. The upper floor is used by the owners when the are in town. The guide of the house tour was great and gave a lot of interesting information. You can walk under centenary trees, learn a... More

Nice place to spend 3 or so hours. Would recommend the house tour, self guided slave houses and the ride around the property. The tree lined entry does not disappoint. If you have little kids it's nice that the attractions are not super far from one another or the parking area.

It's not far across the bridge from Charleston. The moss covered oak trees leading up to the house is just beautiful. The entry fee covers all you to do there. We took the wagon ride around the property with a guide, then watched a live performance of a slave portrayal at the slave quarters. We didn't get to tour the... More

What a beautiful site to visit! My fiancé and I were sunburned and needed to find a fun thing to do away from the beach. We were lucky with the weather on our trip to Boone Hall, as it was mild temperatures with a breeze. Many of the activities here were outdoors (except the house tour), so visiting on a... More

My friends and I were on vacation and wanted to tour a plantation home. We called ahead of time to check on ticket purchases and also asked how long the tour was. We were told about 2 1/2. We spent around 5 hours there! We started Our tour inside the home. You aren't allowed to take pictures inside the home... More

We enjoyed our visit to Boone Hall Plantation. The tour of the house was interesting, the black History talk and the self tour were very educational and both of those presenters were enthusiastic and appreciative of their audiences. Also, we really enjoyed the Gullah presentation. Most employees were very nice, but several could have been more welcoming (the girl at... More

Boon Hall was such a moving place with so much history on display. It recognizes what went on and honors the memories of the African Americans who endured all the hardship. Yeah so what that the house isn't original, they couldn't help the fires and the storms, at least they have preserved the area AND it is still a working... More

My wife and I visited a number of plantations on a visit to Charleston. You'll want to visit Boone Hall early. Besides the house tour, which was wonderful - the house and our guide for the tour - there are exhibits on slavery, and there are the gardens. We also attended the Gullah experience, which we thought was well worth... More
