A must visit if you are a history buff and are visiting the Charleston area. Be sure to attend the Gullah Culture Presentation - extremely informative. What I liked best is that for the most part you set your own pace.

On a beautifully warm February day, we had an enjoyable visit to Boone Hall. The tour of the main house was very interesting as were that of the slave houses which each had a recorded narration, sometimes accompanied by a video. Unfortunately some of them were not working. The coach tour around the entire working plantation was interesting but would... More

This is the first plantation we've visited in the Charleston area. Boone Hall is still a working farm, raising truck produce and pick your own items, which were off season right now. The price of admission covers everything, and there's a $2 discount for AAA. Knowledgeable guides, beautiful grounds you might recognize from movies and television shows. One caveat, the... More

Visited Boone Hall today. Spent about 4 hours there. Thoroughly enjoyed it. One price gets you into everything. Slave Cabins are set up with videos, pictures and history about the slaves on this property. Although we only toured the main floor of main home it was absolutely beautiful. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny. I highly recommend this tour.

Admission gets you into the main house, a driven tour of the grounds, slave houses and Gulah live presentation. The house is a bit of a disappointment because it is not original to the era, having been built in the 30's by a Canadian diplomat and his wife, and there are very few open rooms. Driven tour of grounds gives... More

My husband and I visited Boone Plantation recently and enjoyed our time there learning the history. We visited the welcome center right away to sign up for a house tour and then did some of the self-guided stuff and the carriage tour. The only thing I was disappointed about was that the house tour really was just a few rooms... More

When looking to visit this plantation, I expected a thorough tour of the slave quarters. They did not offer this. Instead, there was a guided tour of the first floor of the house and of the surrounding land. Why was there no guided tour of the slave quarters?! This, to me, was unacceptable. I wanted to learn how the slaves... More
