We were on our way to Charleston from Savannah and decided to stop by and see Beaufort. I am so glad we did, this was a beautiful town with so much history and beautiful homes. Our tour guide (we forget her name, but she is married to a Marine & has a 2 yr old baby) she was awesome, very... More

The carriage driver was very knowledgeable about the area and gave a lot of insight into the history of the homes and past notables in the city of Beaufort. Our driver had a pleasant sense of humor and made for a fun experience. The ticket seller left a lot to be desired in customer service. He was rude and not... More

It was a rainy and cool day but our tour guide made us forget about the weather a took us back to Beaufort during the Civil War Era. The history, homes and people were discussed in detail with interesting facts,stories and even humor. Our guide was enthusiastic, friendly and always open to our many questions. The horse drawn carriage made... More

This was such a relaxing and fun way to learn about the Antebellum history of Beaufort. We had a wonderful time on the tour. Bill was our guide and was quite knowledgeable.

This is a great option for a wonderful overview of this historical little town. Book it ahead of time, as the carriages can fill up. The tour guide is knowledgeable, but there is so much history to absorb, it can boggle the mind. Take a camera and make sure you sit on the outside seats of the carriage, otherwise you... More

Bud was our guide and seemed quite knowledgeable about the Beaufort area in general and several of the historic buildings and sites in particular. We found the history quite interesting. It seems that both carriage companies cover the same [or a very similar] route since they're controlled by the city. We were on a red carriage [Sea Island]; the Southurn... More

Debbie was our guide and we were the only 2 in the carriage. Merlin was our horse. Yes, we have a quirky sense of humor and thought Debbie was great! I mean, think of all the information she has to memorize and spit out X number of times per day! Kudos for a job well done, Debbie and Merlin! Beaufort... More

After getting a strong recommendation from a couple sitting near us at lunch, we decided to take the tour rather than walking the area. From the strange lady in a store who sold us the tickets to Debbie, the guide, we were left wondering if everyone in the area was a little nuts. Debbie's non-stop talking, odd "acting" voice and...
