The Sea Island Carriage Company provided a wonderful experience that included a relaxing carriage ride through "old" Beaufort. The driver was well versed in a presentation of historical information that was very accurate and enjoyable. The price was very reasonable.

We visited downtown Beaufort midway through our vacation. We stopped at the visitor center and they recommended that we take a carriage. I always get a bit skeptical when visitor centers recommend something as I am sure they probably get a nice kickback but we were not disappointed with this recommendations. Our tour guide was friendly and was very knowledgeable... More

The carriage tour through the old colonial area of Beaufort is well worth doing. You get to see the beautiful old preserved houses in streets lined with large old trees and the Spanish Moss hanging down. Its a very enjoyable hour.

When we arrived in Beaufort SC it was too early to check in at our inn, so we decided to take a carriage ride. Our driver was very knowledgeable about the history of Beaufort. It is a great way to learn your way around town, while getting a history lesson. The carriage was comfortable, and the horses were well taken... More

I treated two visiting friends to a carriage tour on Sea Island Carriage Company. Bud was our guide and Bob was doing the heavy lifting. Bud was an extremely knowledgeable guide, not only telling about the antebellum homes and their histories but the flora and fauna found in our little piece of heaven. Not only did Bud have facts and... More

A friend and I decided at the last minute to do a girl's weekend getaway to Beaufort, which was our first time there. The carriage ride was the highlight of our weekend....Bud was our tour guide, very pleasant and was excellent! We were the only ones on the tour, so we felt as if we had our own personal tour!...

Great way to see homes built in 1700's to pre civil war homes. Very beautiful old churches with stained glass windows. Learned the difference between a graveyard and cemetery especially for Episcopalians. Guide was very knowledgeable about history of Beaufort from pre revolutionary to present day! Money well spent

We have taken carriage tours in various cities including Charleston and Savannah. The Sea Island Carriage tour of Beaufort was different. Rather than a scripted review of the history and sites, our guide "Gypsy" offers a pleasant casual chat during the ride. She presented the essential history of the town and its homes, but in a conversational manner rather than... More
