Excellent deal for transportation and tickets to multiple aspects of the plantation. Guide drove safely and provided history on the way there and suggestions for eating/drinking on the way back. The van was small and comfortable and the driver was friendly and accommodating.

The ride to and from the plantation was enjoyable and comfortable. On the tram tour we saw the beautiful grounds and on the house tour a great historical lesson.

We went to Magnolia plantation. We had Scott as our driver/tour guide. He was excellent. It is a 25-30 minute drive to the Magnolia and he gave us info the whole time along our route. Either things to do or history about charleston and the plantation. Giving us good advice what to do and not to do at the plantation as well. Also on our trip back to Charleston, gave us alot of food options and more.things to do. The plantation itself was ok. The lady that was the guide for the house was ok, kind of boring and monotoned. Seemed like she just wanted to get us through and onto the next group. The other guides might be better. I would suggest the tram ride where you go through the woods/forest area. You will see alligators, former slave cabins and other outdoor wildlife. And also go to the theater and watch the history of the tour. If your going through Grayline and doing the tour only portion I would do it in this order. Theater first, tram second, house 3rd and with the time you have left, walk along the paths around the house and by the river. The tour bus left at 9:30 and we got back around 2. It was the right amount of time unwound say
