Very nice upscale and classy. Really enjoyed myself here. Recommended over magnolia plantation unless you love nature more than seeing the home and cabins.

Boone hall was great. I loved the tractor ride. The property is massive. The house was nice of what we were allowed to see. Most of the house due to restrictions was not accessible. Other than that it was pretty nice.

Gullah culture is vital
Maurice_D
, Aug 2020
Theatrical presentation of the Gullah experience in America is vital to understanding our past present and future. The number, activities, sufferings and joys of slaves in Charleston also enhance our perspective about our culture and heritage. Viewing Boone Hall today - the historic slave quarters, fields and gardens - and listening to commentaries never (correctly) explained in the (public) education system - heightens our awarenesses of who we are becoming? Our tour van driver-narrator, Alan, was well informed, clear, congenial and thoughtful. Receptionists at each station were enthused, determined and encouraging. It was a pleasant tour - some thanks to overcast, moderate weather too. Everyone is adjusting well to the virus that We will defeat.

Our shuttle driver, Shawn, was very informative. He also gave great advice on a restaurant that we enjoyed later that evening. The plantation was amazing. The avenue of the oaks was impressive. Our kids (14, 10, 7, 4) enjoyed it, all taking away different aspects.

Avenue of Oaks was the highlight
Lela_F
, Mar 2020
The "Avenue of Oaks" was the most impressive part of this tour. The house itself was so disappointing. I did not know when I booked the tour that people are actually living in the mansion, so we only got to see two rooms. VERY disappointing. The Slave quarters were interesting as was the Gullah experience. "DJ" the tour guide for the drive around the property was especially annoying with his over-the-top dramatization of his speech.
