Neat place to visit & better understand old southern living. Main house is period furnished. Don't miss driving back trail if it's dry & your vehicle will allow. There you'll find an old slave cemetery & slave cabins

How long should you plan to spend at the home if you do the tour and whatever else the plantation has to offer?

2-3 hours. There is the guided house tour, signage in the side yard and battlefield, and the family cemetery, slave cemetery, and slave cabin at the rear of the property.
I assume your Paranormal Tours try to contact the spirit world. Based on a percent, how often are these tours successful with reaching the spirit world?

Best to contact "Whispers of the Past Rippavilla Plantation" on Facebook. (I can't post their link but it will pop up in the search box). They run the investigations and will be able to answer based on past experience.
Are there a lot of hauntings here?

Yes. The guides wont usually tell you unless you ask, but yes, it is very active. Ask for Chuck, he knows his stuff and has been there many years.
