Our tour bus guide Cathy (with a “C”) lol was extremely full of information on the way to the plantation and was very personable! The plantation was just beautiful especially the 200yr old oaks lining the long driveway. The main house tour guide was hilarious and mad the tour very enjoyable . The Gullah presentation was interesting and I learned many different traditions with their people.

Jay, our driver was very professional and friendly and had some interesting information about the city of Charleston while on the way to the plantation. At the plantation all of the guides were very knowledgeable and glad to chat with you and answer questions after their “speech”. It was great hearing the history of this plantation which was a working plantation until the 1950s when it began opening its doors for tourism, events, and movie/television shoots. The property is huge and beautiful. It was a little disappointing that you only see about 1/3 of the mansion on the property, but it’s apparently still a living space at times so that’s understandable. The owner still lives on site and uses it for guest quarters.

This is a beautiful example of a time gone by. The historical significance of this place is well worth the time. It is beautiful, and we learned so much.

Awesome adventure. The drive and driver were very enjoyable. The historical talks and especially the Gullah presentation were educational and done really well. Loved the ride on the tram and learning the agricultural history of the working plantation. I highly recommend this tour!

Our guide/driver told us so much about the history of Charleston and Boone Hall. Loved to see it decorated. Loved the tractor ride around the property.

Best way to visit Boone Hall from Charleston. Show up at the transportation center in downtown, they drive you there and back. You have over 3 hours to experience the area, listen to some tours, have a bite to eat. All the lectures were delivered by very well informed guides. All seem engaged in the plantation and garden location and history. They offer so much for tourists and locals. A great place to get informed and support a local business

This tour was excellent. The history is very important to our country and the people telling it were good. The last time I did a plantation tour, I used Uber to get to and from the site. This proved to be unreliable and expensive so this time, I chose a tour that included transportation from town. This was terrific! Not only was it convenient and economical, our driver was great at telling us the history on the way up there.

Our Driver/Tour Guide was Shawn. On the way to Boone Hall he provided interesting facts about Charleston. Once you get to Boone Hall you are touring yourself but it’s not that hard as your given a list of things to do and with times. So you can do things at your own pace. You are given your pickup time so you can keep track of time to make it back. Highly recommend.
