This was an excellent tour that included a guided tour of the main house, self-guided tour through all the slave cabins and an outstanding Gullah Culture presentation. We ended our visit with a coach tour of the property. There was also a café and gift shop. This tour took about 3 hours and was interesting and efficiently organized. This was... More

House is only about a hundred years old, that's a bummer but the rest of the farm is really cool. The fact that it is still a working farm is really awesome

I had wanted to see an old plantation and this was advertised as one of the the oldest working plantation. This might be true but the buildings were not original and were less than 100 years old. We were only allowed to tour 4 rooms (all down stairs) on the house tour. The slave street and history talk were okay.... More

Toured Boone Hall about ten years ago and was overwhelmed with this beauty and history of this place. It is simply amazing. The tour of the home, however, was lacking this go round. The tour guide was good, but it was fairly boring and lacking in historical, interesting information. It also seemed very rushed. The tour around the grounds on... More

The grounds were gorgeous and well maintained. My husband and I loved the tram tour around the Plantation. Our driver was a great story teller and was well informed. It took about 30-40 minutes. We also did the house tour which we were unimpressed with. The house itself isnt the original plantation as many of the plantations were burned to... More

Boone Hall Plantation is simply gorgeous! The trees are breathtaking! We especially enjoyed the "Gullah" presentation, given by a lady named Jackie. She was outstanding! It was an extremely hot day, but we very much enjoyed our visit. Simply beauitiful place!

All the people we needed to interact with were very friendly. The grounds were beautiful, and there were a number of things to see including the house itself.

Well worth the time an money to visit Boone Hall Plantation. It will take about 4hours to do it justice. So neat to walk back in time a see a working 738 acre farm still today. The best way to purchase tickets is at the Visitors Center for Charleston downtown. Saved five dollars per person.
