Nice but a bit repetitive
, Jan 2022
This was a pleasant way to spend a few hours. The negative, I would say, is the repetition among the tour driver, the nature tour driver and the house tour guide. We heard the same thing 3 times. The other thing was you had no time to tour the gardens, which I would’ve liked to do.
Worth one visit, aim when gardens are blooming
, Dec 2021
The plantation is beautiful, but the gardens were partially closed and not many blooms to see this time of year. Still, walking the grounds was really nice. The Nature Tram tour was quite slow and a bit redundant.
Gorgeous grounds, garden and historic plantation home
, Dec 2021
This tour is a great hassle free way to experience the highlights of the historic and picturesque Magnolia Plantation. The bus rides were 30 minutes and had a good balance of historical info and quiet time. The walking tour of the grounds and gardens was about 40 min with key info from the guide. Later we had about 40 min to walk around and explore on our own including the fabulous gift shop (with reasonable prices). The walking tour of the house was fantastic though it was a disappointing surprise that no photos were allowed inside (since there are so many family relics inside). The 40 min tram ride was pleasant although our guide had very choppy speech which required us to pay very close attention during the ride just to understand basic info he was telling us. The grounds and gardens are absolutely gorgeous even though it was early December and not much was blooming (some cameleas) and the fall leaves were mostly fallen already. That probably means that any time of year allows for beautiful views and pictures.
Beautiful, Need More Time!
, Dec 2021
The grounds are beautiful. You really could spend several days exploring, and still not have seen everything. Our tour group did some of the romantic garden, a 45 minute tram tour, and a tour of the house. All were fantastic. I only wish we’d had more time. I’d like to go back and really explore the swamp garden and the slave history/ life (which is its own tour). Definitely worth going to!
Amazing Magnolia Plantation
, Dec 2021
We enjoyed the drive out with our very knowledgeable driver/guide. Also the walk & ride through the gardens. House tour & history was very nice. The whole tour was amazing from start to finish.

Wonderful Nature Walk Tour
, Nov 2021
The walk through the garden and ride through the swamp. The house tour was interesting too and we learned about generations who inhabited this house.
Cancellation due to torrential rain should really be allowed
, Nov 2021
Talking to customer service and the young lady telling me that even though there is torrential rain there is no cancellation policy.

Beautiful Property but not worth the money.
, Nov 2021
It’s a beautiful property but the train ride was way to long. We sat with our backs to the driver. So uncomfortable. He kept repeating himself. The house tour was ok but again, we felt like they were trying to force information.
Plantation grounds were...

Plantation grounds were amazing as is the history of the plantation. Driver and guide was very good.
Narration was...

Narration was outstanding, relaxing transport, couldn't have asked for a better experience. Tour buses were clean, air conditioned, but our tour guide was outstanding!
