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

It was about 45 minutes of info and entertainment. Our guide was a young local lady who added wit and wisdom. Jake was our whinnying horse who made it special. We'd recommend it for everyone.

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.
