All Aboard for the Plantation Tour!
You can purchase your Charleston plantation tour tickets online, or at the Charleston Visitor Center, the starting point of your tour. Choose from three fascinating tours, the Boone Hall Plantation tour, the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens tour, or the Tea Plantation and Winery tour. Let’s take a look!

Boone Hall Plantation Tour
Established in the 17th century and open to the public since 1956, Boone Hall is a USA Today 10Best choice as the "Best Plantation in the Charleston Area!" Your half-day visit to one of America's oldest working, living plantations includes a 30-minute house tour led by guides in period dress. A garden tour highlights antique rose bushes over 100 years old. You will learn about slave life as you tour living quarters and exhibits on their daily lives. And you will get to know the Gullah culture that developed as slaves adapted their African roots and customs to the New World.

Magnolia Plantation and Gardens Tour

Established in 1676 and open to the public since 1870, Magnolia was one of America's first Public Gardens. Today, thousands of Charleston visitors flock to see the house and grounds that have been owned by the same family for 12 generations! Your half-day visit includes a 30 minute tour of the Magnolia Plantation Home; a walking tour of the large Romantic Garden; and a 45-minute guided tram ride through the Audubon swamp gardens where you’ll see gators, herons, egrets and more.

Tea Plantation and Winery Tour
Our latest plantation offering is another Charleston original. Located on scenic Wadmalaw Island, the Charleston Tea Plantation is the only one of its kind in America. Then, tour nearby Deep Water, the area’s only working vineyard and winery. And yes, there WILL be tastings! Also, take a tour of regional favorite Firefly Vodka distillery. Learn all about the distillation process, and sample an only-in-Charleston delight, the world’s first Sweet Tea Vodka. Along the way, make a stop at historic Angel Oak, a majestic Southern Live Oak considered to be at least 400 to 500 years old!
