Took this tour as part of our trip from Australia staying st hilton head. Our lovely carriage driver and friendly host couldn't have been more informative on the towns history, she'd done her research and it showed, absolutely fascinating! Our trusty steed Bob, over 20yrs old and s former Amish form horse, steadily led Us around the many historic streets,... More

Hillary was great, but I am not sure she ever breathed, she talked non-stop, I never had a chance to digest what she was saying. There is so much to see and talk about, I think the guides just need to slow down and let the city speak for itself more. Nevertheless, this is a do-not-miss tour, a great overview... More

Staying in Hilton Head, my husband wanted to play the golf course on Parris Island. So while close, we wanted to see Beaufort, SC, too. We purchased a discounted ticket for two to take the horse drawn carriage tour and enjoyed it very much. These tickets are readily available through hotels and local resorts in HH. The experience of being... More

Multigenerational activity that entertained all from 6 to 73. Children really appreciated information about the area and have continued to talk about what they learned.

This carriage ride was fun, relaxing and very informative. The driver was pleasant and knowledgeable. The 55 minute ride was just right and the price was well worth it. Good time to take photos!

There are no double-decker bus tours of BFT, so this is the next best thing. Probably the best way to learn the history of the town, the importance of the homes-who built them, who lived there (past and present) and why Beaufort is the gem of all period architecture and history in the Lowcountry. Our tour guide, Bonnie, was super... More

Your typical buggy ride through the interesting parts of town described by knowledgeable guides. The houses are imposing as are some of the histories behind them. The "angel oak" trees are spectacular.

We toured Beaufort with Frank & his carriage driver, who is a military wife and horse person. She delivered a polished, precise presentation through Historic Beaufort. This company was perfect! Thank you!

My husband and I were in town for a wedding - friends recommended we do this as a quick way to learn about the town. Our guide was Bill and our horse was Babe. It was great and so worth it ($21 per person, takes about an hour). Our guide was very knowledgeable about the Civil war history of the... More
