  • We had spent my birthday weekend in Williamsburg VA and on our way home back to NC we stopped in Charles city VA at the Berkeley Plantation and it was by far the best tour of the weekend or maybe that I’ve ever been on! Clarence was outstanding !!!!!! My boyfriend and I couldn’t stop talking about him and of course the plantation. Everything about the tour and property is amazing and I highly recommend this tour again and again. The woman in the ticket /gift shop was amazing conversation too... I really just can’t wait to come back . Ten stars!!
  • Really enjoyed this. We were vacationing in Williamsburg, VA for Thanksgiving and stumbled upon this place. We were thoroughly surprised at the amount of history at Berkeley Plantation and how well kept the estate and grounds were. The tour guide was very informative and made sure to really make you feel like you were transported back in time. The place is also pet friendly as we brought our dogs. I'd recommend this for anyone of any age. It's really beautiful, historical, and unique. An American treasure!
  • Still privately owned but a historic treasure. How cool to stand where George Washington and Thomas Jefferson stood. Beautiful setting too. Highly recommend this place.
  • Very peaceful on an unseasonably warm February morning. While I'm sure the site is lightly staffed during this time of year, a little sticky note telling us when they'd be back to sell tickets/give a tour would have been nice.
  • Had lots of fun here and learned quite a lot. Clairance, our tour guide, was excellent. The ticket/gift shop lady was great as well.
