The entire tour was amazing. Not sure you can get too excited given the type of tour it was, but it was very informational. My favorite part was the lady who does the Gullah "play". She was absolutely amazing. I learned more from her in 30 mins than I have in 30 plus years. I don't know of they ever... More

Boone Hall is not only beautiful, but offers much information about the lives of slaves. From the moment you turn onto the driveway of oaks, you are transported to another time. The beauty of the trees and flower garden that greet you is breathtaking. Upon being dropped off at the plantation, we were greeted by a mother horse and her... More

I did not know what to expect before going to the Plantation. There is much to see here. The house tour, the slave quarters including slave talks & the jitney ride around the grounds. You could spend an entire day here. Do not go on a hot day. It was 95 degrees the day we went and we were exhausted... More

Boone Hall has it all, lots of history, as well as a current working farm. Make sure you take the tram ride tour around the property. The tour drivers are full of facts about the property aas well as knowledgeable enough to answer most questions you may have. Unfortunately, the main house tour only consists of the main floor of...

From the stunning scenery to the informative guides, everything about this attraction was wonderful! Be sure to do all of the tours while there and don't miss the amazing presentation about the Gullah history. Very moving & unforgettable! I would recommend having a fan for comfort and a cold drink if going in the summer. These can be purchased there... More

The tour of the home was interesting, albeit brief. More time was spent going through the slave quarters and what was set up as a "History Channel" like presentation in each building (I think that there were eight or nine of them). These presentations gave you not only a history of Boone Plantation and Slave life there, but also a... More

The man giving the slave street history talk was the best part of the entire visit. He knew his history, didn't mind answering questions, and was very passionate about what he was doing. We didn't tour the house because they did not allow picture to be taken inside (I'm glad we didn't because I found out you only get to... More

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Boone Hall. My favorite part was the drive down the driveway under those awesome trees! The house tour was informative & cute. The trolly ride was ok- little long in my opinion.
