Driving through up the Avenue of the Oaks is worth the price. It doesn't get any more beautiful or southern. Lots of history (good and bad), beautiful grounds and interesting tours. We did the full experience: House tour, Gullah Geechie talk, ride around the acreage. It was a day well spent.

The grounds were beautiful. The house tour wasn't much... the guide was very sweet but just not a lot to see (3 rooms) but the grounds and Gullah Geechee performance were wonderful.

This is a must see place if you're in Charleston. We spent 4 hours there to take advantage of all the activities. The admission is only $24 and the moment you enter, you feel the history of our past. You'll have access to the tractor ride, Gullah presentation, house tour and a history walk through the slave's home. There's a small cafe for food and ice cream which was awesome. It's a beautiful plantation and I'm so glad they preserved it for people to visit.

I have been on many plantation tours and this is by far one of the best. Boone Hall offers education and variety. From the tour of the planatation home, the slave cabins, the Gulah performance, I was blown away. My tour was 4 hours and I could have spent more time there. Put this on your list of things to do and see!

We spent the entire day here and did it all, the house tour, the tractor trailer ride, the slaves quarters, but the very best, do not miss, was the black woman a decendant of slaves, who gave a great talk about the origin of the Gula language along with her beautiful voice. Seriously, don't miss this tour.
