Evelene knows her Beaufort history and has personality and humor to boot! She was thorough and entertaining. We totally recommend her.

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.

Great tour of historic St. Helena I. & Penn Center. Learned lots about the sea islands, and Evelene is great.

This tour was recommended to us by a couple people and we were not disappointed. Our tour guide Kelly made this tour amazing with her passion and knowledge of Beaufort. We learned so many interesting facts, saw beautiful homes and laughed at some of Kelly's stories. She tailored the tour to our interests. Best day of our vacation! We are... More

(This tour is listed under attractions instead of activities and needs to move to activities so people can find it). We enjoyed the city tour with Evelene a lot. She even let us crate our small dogs in her office since it was too hot in the car, thank you! Loved seeing all the homes and hearing the history. She's... More

So many beautiful homes, so much history. The Federal Cemetery was so evocative. I've never been on a tour during which the tour guide sang. It was beautiful. Than you Evelene!

We went on the Low Country Plantation and Gullah Tour. This is a 3 hour tour that goes out to the sea islands, but seems to have destinations that are variable depending upon the guide or the wants of the tourists. The tour guide did seem to have a good knowledge of Beaufort history, but sometimes their personal history gets... More
