I was on a cruise during spring break and even though we were rained on, we still enjoyed this tour very much. The young woman who gave our tour was fabulous! She was pleasant and knowledgeable. I think she told us the horse was a retired Amish work horse which I found marvelous! She had a very funny story about... More

Beaufort is such a charming town. What better way to view lovely Beaufort than in a horse drawn carriage? Our tour guide/carriage driver was friendly, well informed and interesting. We learned a great deal about the history of Beaufort on this 55-minute ride. The carriage ride was the perfect way to view the beautiful historic homes. We most certainly recommend... More

We had a tremendous tour of Beaufort with Southern Rose. Our tour guide was both informative and entertaining with her knowledge and witty delivery of Beaufort's history and intrigue. The $18 per person charge was worth every penny and we left with an appreciation of this charming town and it's rich and colorful history. Money well spent!

Had the most enjoyable horse drawn carriage tour through historic Beaufort, SC. Our guide made the tour not only informative but also entertaining and our gentle giant Jim kept a relaxing pace past 700 year old live oaks, movie sites and homes and churches dating back to before the Revolutionary War. Great experience and I would highly recommend it.

Fun ride through a wide circle of downtown Beaufort. $18pp fare pre-tip. Bill, our guide was informative and kept up a constant monologue of facts and figures. Only constructive suggestion w/b to be a bit slower in delivery allowing some interaction give and take with the tourists on the ride. The monologue was sometimes too rapid fire and mechanical. Still... More

We saw historic Beaufort and learned about it's buildings, people and history. All the history was given in story form and was very enjoyable. Our horse drawn carriage moved at a very leisurely pace giving us plenty of time to look around and ask questions.

And our guide provided us an entertaining history of Beaufort. She was brite and cheerie and easy to hear and understand. Beaufort is a beautiful town with great old homes and building and a nice waterfront dock where the tour begins.

We were in Beaufort on a warm ( relatively ) sunny day in January and like the reviewer below, were lucky enough to have Charlotte as our guide and Jake as our "engine". We couldn't have had a better time. The horses are well loved and beautiful, Charlotte has a knowledge and charm that will cast a spell as she... More

Jake, the beautiful horse pulling our fully loaded carriage, and Charlotte, our tour hostess, stole the show. Stealing the show in Beaufort isn't easy because it is a beautiful town with so, so much history. It turns out that Jake has a mind of his own in that if he decides to stop under a beautiful Spanish moss covered tree... More
