My team bailed on me so I did the scavenger hunt on my own and actually had fun! Saw lots of cool things and walked a LOT! I suggest bringing paper and pencil for a few of the questions…they didn’t translate well to notes on the phone. Took me about four hours to complete, partially because I got sidetracked a few times. It was fun! I would definitely do it again in another location. It is, however, a bit expensive, I think.
The oak trees are amazing and worth the trip because you are not going to see them anywhere else. The performance by Jackie the Gullah was also amazing and informative. If you take the tour definitely see it. And the tractor ride because it gives you an overview of the plantation and it’s history. The food in the snack bar is pretty good too, especially the pulled pork.
Loved the plantation land and the slave homes along with the history. The home itself was somewhat disappointing as you do not have access to much of the home. You can only view 3 rooms so not like a typical historical home tour. Go for the experience of the overall plantation however as it was amazing
It was a fantastic time! We had fun learning about the ecosystem, seeing a mother dolphin and her baby and learning how to SUP! Our guides were funny and knowledgeable!
Boone Hall plantation was gorgeous. Tour guides were friendly and we loved the Gullah presentation.
