My family and I were excited to visit Boone Hall Plantation, as we had never visited a historical plantation before. The tour of the house was interesting, and I enjoyed hearing about the lives of the families who lived there over the years. The self-guided tour of the slave cabins was the best part of the trip, as it showed... More

This was my first experience of a Southern plantation. however, the structure was rebuilt last century so it lost a bit of it's 'authenticness'. Nevetheless, the guide was engaging and the history worth two hours of my time. Highly recommend. oh- that Oak lined long entrance... Yowza.

not what I expected, kind of a disappointment. I guess I was expecting an original plantation home with some of the original buildings and gardens and fields. The home was pretty, but not original to the property. If I remember correctly it is the 3rd or 4th home. How about some history of the actual original plantation. Again pretty property... More

I've been to plantations in Louisiana and they are better presented, more informative and maintained. As this is supposed to be a working plantation, I expected a lot more of the property to be under crop and more meticulously presented. If it was strictly geared for tourism, I'd expect more of a tour throughout the "big house" than the bottom... More

We spent a great afternoon at Boone Hall plantation. We started with a tour of the plantation itself where the tour guide explained how the plantation changed over the years as cash crops changed. We then toured the slave cabins which gave a great overview of how the slaves lived and worked on the plantation. It really brought home that... More

As you enter the grounds on the road with the magnificent oak trees you can close your eyes for a moment and believe you are in the movie Forrest Gump! It only gets better! They have a tram vehicle to take you around the grounds of the former plantation with a guide. The stories and history are great! There is... More

We decided to visit Boone Hall because it is the closest plantation to Charleston, at least in the cost of taking an Uber there. The grounds are beautiful, especially the entrance with all the oak trees. I was not expecting a house from the 1930´s and that was a bit disappointing but the tour of the home was informative. I...

The tour of the Plantation is well worth the time it takes. Our guide was of most interest and very informative about the plantation. Words cannot describe the view when you look down the long road with all the trees on each side.
