Everything was excellent. The house guides sense of humor was a bit over the top but he was very informative.

The tractor and house tour were the only tours we experienced since it was a windy day. We left earlier than we expected because of the windy day and blowing sand.
Worth a visit

This is plantation definitely worth a visit if you are in Charleston. The tractor ride around the grounds have a great history of the grounds. It is a working farm that is beautifully maintained. Visit the house and see the Gullah presentation!

Wonderful Gullah Presentation
Karen_C, Feb 2023
The woman that presented the Gullah Culture at the slave cabins was magnificent! She was so knowledgeable and had a beautiful singing voice. I definitely recommend it!

It was difficult to process that my ancestors were here on Boone plantation. The historians need to ensure they explain how Africans were captured on the continent.
Productive, informative & emotional experience

The storyteller was very informative ❤️
This was a priceless experience!
So much information and important facts!

This is a beautiful place with so much history. You need to get there early with so much to see. Be sure to stop by the information office to get an itinerary. It is helpful so you don't miss anything.

Probably the best opportunity to educate visitors on the slave trade in the US but sadly, Boole Hall missed this desperately.
The house tour focused on the 3rd owner not Boone, who was so heavily involved in the slave trade.
The tractor tour focused on crops grown today rather than explaining what was grown previously and what life was like for people that worked in these fields.
We found the girl at the Gullah theatre rude and condescending and didn't put anything she had to say into the context of what life was like on the plantation.
That was a terribly wasted opportunity to explain how life was during the the days of slavery.

Nice Place to Relax
Shanna_S, Dec 2022
We really enjoyed the whole atmosphere of Boone Hall. The tour guide for the house was great along with the stable tour and slave quarter guide. We were a bit disappointed that a large group came an hour after we had arrived and told we would have to wait another hour and a half for a different farm tour. At that point we didn't have anything else to do so we left.
This is history.

I took my 83 years young aunt to explore history for her birthday. The subject matter was rough but the experience was life changing
Emily_B, Nov 2022
What a wonderful experience! Our favorite was the story teller! The little cafe was a great place to get warm, as it t was cold outside! The tracker ride tour was great and the mansion tour was fabulous! A worthwhile trip, for sure!
Amazing experience and historically interesting
Brianna_C, Nov 2022
We particularly enjoyed the History of Gullah talk and the tractor pulled ride around the premises. Everything was great and it's truly a beautiful functional farm.
Pauline_M, Oct 2022
The house tour was wonderful. I love the old architecture with all of the intricate moldings, fun doors and Beau flooring. It’s amazing how
they could put together a beautiful home back in the days.
It was very informative
Melissa_B, Oct 2022
The history of the plantation. How it came to be, the history of the slaves. I learned so much on the trip to the plantation. It’s just amazing to learn that the working plantation has grown over the last 200 plus years. From agriculture to horse to being the site for movies are made. To learn that the grand looking house is really not that old.
Beautiful and interesting place to visit!!
Don_R, Oct 2022
We learned a lot about the slaves. It was very interesting but sad. The tour guide who took us through the house was wonderful! The house and the grounds were beautiful! Unfortunately we had a harbor tour scheduled that same day so we didn't get to go on the wagon ride. Overall besides the crowd it was a very nice time!!
