Middleton Place is a beautiful plantation and I highly recommend that EVERYONE check it out. I don't recommend the luxury tour that includes pick up and lunch for a few reasons: one, it felt as though the shocks on the bus were missing, braking was sudden and frequent; two, upon arrival the driver (extremely friendly) informed us that the lunch that was included with purchase and the guided house tour were the only two things that were time sensitive and must be adhered to and the remaining time could be spent however we wanted. When the entire bus group of 14 arrived at the restaurant the hostess said the wait would be over an hour which meant we would all miss our scheduled home tour. Very confusing. I called pineapple tour group to understand what the problem was - they were very apologetic an said there was a miscommunication and a few minutes later received a call back saying the restaurant could seat us immediately. We get seated and wait over 30 minutes to be served and still do not make it to our scheduled home tour on time. I was not upset with the staff at the restaurant as they were running the place with only 7 employees (chef, cook, dishwasher, hostess, servers). Lunch was delicious but being turned away and then called back and then still not making the scheduled house tour on time was frustrating. You'd be better off driving yourself, eating at the market (or bringing a lunch or eating well before or after your visit) and giving yourself the flexibility to visit frustration free. Pineapple tour group was deeply apologetic for the confusion. Hopefully they'll get things sorted out, communication will improve, and the drive to and from won't include the risk of whiplash.

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.

It really wasn’t Viator’s fault it was messed up. It was raining and we could not risk leaving our car parked @ the Vistors Center. The “text” only pay system wouldn’t work. We had to get off the tour because our car would have been towed. That’s why it was terrible. We were drenched from trying. Very disappointed.

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