We really loved our driver, Mudge. He went over & beyond. However, the food/beverage situation needs improvement

Private Half Day Tour of Middleton Place & Drayton Hall Tour including Box Lunch
Most memorable- the driver (Mudge) Opinion: when offering a lunch box, we would recommend the food be fresh. We were picked up at 9:30am, & our driver already had the food in the front seat in a paper bag. We had just had breakfast, & had planned on eating the food for lunch (noon). But with it being in a paper bag & not kept cold… we did not get to enjoy it. The water in the cooler had no ice; therefore it was hot.

Middleton Place All-Access Admission & Guided Tour with Lunch from Charleston
This was advertised as a guided tour. We were driven to the plantation and shown a video on the drive to the plantation but upon arrival were left on our own to visit the plantation. This was a good tour but should not be advertised as a guided tour.

The tour was nice. The lunch, chicken, was not worth the price we paid. The house and grounds were very nice

When to Get There

While Middleton Place is open throughout the year, many visitors plan their trip based on what’s blooming in the gardens. The winter months see centuries-old camellias burst into bloom, while vibrant azaleas put on a show above Rice Mill Pond in spring. In summer, expect roses, crepe myrtles, magnolias, and kalmia—as well as high temperatures.
