Bud and Merlin showed us around town on our carriage tour. Bud is very knowledgeable and informative about the sights on the tour, and Merlin pretty much knew the way by himself! He even seemed to know when the traffic lights were red!! Fun way to learn about Beaufort.

We took a carriage tour around the historic section of the city on our first morning in town. Our guide shared information about the many antebellum homes that still exist. She was very knowledgeable and made the tour educational as well as enjoyable. We like the horse Merlin too!

My experience is that a tour of almost any attraction by horse-drawn carriage is well worth the time and cost. This one of Beaufort, South Carolina, was no exception. The $20 per person fee was well spent. Our guide/driver was "Bud" and the horse was Bob. Bud was a wealth of knowledge on just about every old building in Beaufort.... More

We had a great day. We took the carriage tour with Hillary and she was outstanding. We also took the Gullah Island tour with Ashley. What a treat! She sings and acts and takes you back to another time era. It was great. We stopped at the Penn Center which I had never heard of and was quite interesting. Ashley... More
