I recommend this carriage tour, especially if Bill is your driver and tour guide. The staff is courteous. Bill is very educated and informed about Beaufort history. He carefully explains details that other tour guides might miss. He adds a lot of flavor to this charming community.

Have been to many coastal towns in SC but never Beaufort. My mistake. Beaufort is a most charming, historic town dating back to the early 1700's. The tour was informative, thorough and comfortable. Our guide was well versed in the local history and we were spellbound during the entire tour. Word of wisdom, don't sit in the front bench directly... More

We had never even heard of Beaufort, SC until a day ago! Someone suggested it, and we found it to be a charming little town on the water. We took the Rose carriage tour and were so glad we did. Our guide, Charlotte, was a native and exuded Southern hospitality and charm, telling a myriad of stories about the houses,... More

We boarded the carriage at Port Royal Sound and the name of our horse was Newman. He was beautiful and they really care for him well. In between rides, he gets watered, fed, hooves polished, and lots of loving. By taking a carriage ride you learn so much history of the area. Our guide was young,and full of knowledge about... More

My husband and I are glad we took this tour. We learned so much more about the history of Beaufort and the old homes. Our tour guide answered any questions we had. I would recommend doing this first before you set out on foot to check out the sites around town. Our horse liked eating the moss when he could.... More

We enjoyed a really nice tour. Very easy to set up and the cost was $21 a person. We arrived at their location, paid, got our tickets and the next carriage left in 40 mins. Just enough time to check out the bathroom have a quick stroll down Bay St. The carriage was covered, nice since we had a brief... More

While in the tourist information center, we started to talk to a couple from Canada and they just got off the Buggy ride tour of Beaufort and the said it was wonderful, so we signed up. What a...
