Wonderful visit. Our guide, Suity (sp?) was passionate about the plantation and shared it's history and stories beautifully. George, the cat, was a friendly ambassador. A great place to visit!

Tour guide and staff gave our group some good history lessons. Property was kept in conditions you might have seen all those years ago.

The guide, Suety?spelling, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I always seem to take away something interesting on these tours. Lots of firsts, at Berkeley Plantation. The gardens down to river were very nice even in the fall. I can only imagine how pretty it is in the spring.
