My family and I traveled to Beaufort ready to experience a new adventure. The Spirit of Beaufort Gullah tour did not disappoint! The van was Clean, Cool, and Comfortable. As we glided through the planned course, our tour guide presented historical facts, asked questions, sang, and laughed: she totally engaged us all! By the time the excursion was over, all... More

We choose this tour because it was 91 degrees today and my mom cannot walk well. An excellent choice though for any situation. Very informative and worth the cost to see these beautiful homes and hear the history of Beaufort. Evelene was so nice and helpful and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable and cool.... More

Ashley took our group on a van tour of the downtown - history and architecture mixed! Be prepared for the dramatic flair :) This was great for my parents who can't walk the tour!

Local tours can be like brushing away a layer of beach sand, hoping something marvelous appears. Usually it's ordinary, too often disappointing, but during a long overdue, impromptu weekend in Beaufort, S.C., we met Evelene Stevenson of The Spirit of Old Beaufort, which may be an apt description for the owner and chief guide. During a three-hour van ride, we... More

I went on the van tour and got a lot of historical information in a short time. The guide, Evelene, was filled with great information, great sense of humor and an awesome voice. The tour was really nice. I am excited to take friends to Beaufort and take the other tours she offers. It was a positive experience.

Loved this 75 minute van tour of historic Beaufort, SC. The tour guide has a degree in southern history and was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour.
