This was the second time we have taken this tour. Cost for an adult was $21 for about an hour. It was very relaxing & the driver was the guide as well as navigator for the horse "Neumann". She really knew her history & did a great job of answering our questions. The only complaint is that at times we... More

Knowing there is tons of history in Beaufort, we knew we wanted to find a way to learn about the area. There were several options, one being a walking tour, but having taken many free walking tours in Europe, we decided to try something different. We settled on one of the carriage ride tours, Southurn Rose. It was a bit... More

This is the best introduction to the historic district of Beaufort. Christina was our guide and Newman our horse as we moseyed through the beautiful old homes of the city, each with an attached story shared nicely by our guide. The Revolutionary War days meld into the Civil War days with the ravages of conflict still deeply felt here. The... More

We took a ride with a relative from Phoenix. The ride really brings the history and growth of Beaufort together. Our guide Arthur and Rocky our horse made for an excellent pair. Well informed and made the trip most memorable. We visited some of the most picture perfect places in Beaufort. Do not miss this excursion.

I have taken this tour before and was lucky enough to have Bill as my guide both times. Beaufort is a beautiful town filled with history. The horse drawn carriage is comfortable and has blankets if needed. Have your camera ready as Bill explains the rich history and shares fabulous stories of actors and movies that filmed there.

Took this tour again and enjoyed it thoroughly. First time with the horse named "Newman" and this time with "Bob." I think the female tour guide may be a bit more knowledgeable than others. Get parking "ticket" beforehand lest you wind up with a citation ($10) as we did.

Treated some visiting family members to a buggy tour on a beautiful Saturday in October. This is probably the third time we have taken the buggy tour in Beaufort since we moved here. This one had to be the best! Unless the horse won't move; tour quality really comes down to the guide. Our guide was Andrea and she was... More

We took this tour with our family from out of town and you just can't believe how much history you learn! The horse was amazing and knew exactly the tour route. I swear he even knew to stop at red lights. It was just a marvelous experience that I would love to do again. I highly recommend Southern Rose Buggy... More
