My husband and I did a tour with our two children ages 9 and 14. Carly was absolutely wonderful! She took time to talk to the kids and make sure they enjoyed it too. She told us not only the history of places but told some of the haunted history stories as well. We have been vacationing in Beaufort for... More

We visited this town at the end of October. We drove to down town Beaufort and walked the area. This was very nice and there was a lot to see and experience. We walked by the breakwall and visited some of the many shops around. Being close to a Marine base, of course there is some military historical sights to... More

Our group of 7 seasoned travelers agreed: Carly Ware is one of the best tour guides we've ever had! From the minute she introduced herself as Carly Ware, Tour Guide Extraordinaire, Carly infused this more-than-just-history tour with her spirited monologues and local tidbits about movie stars, historic homes, and Gullah culture. We moved through the historic district learning why porch... More

Carly gave my group of 8 people a personal tour of Beaufort. We set the time and she met us at our hotel. She was fun, informative and a delight.

We had originally scheduled a tour with Carly Ware of Beaufort Walking Tours. Carly did NOT show up for the tour. We called her twice and left messages and our number to see where she was. We never heard back from her. We then made a last minute reservation with Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour and had a wonderful and... More

Didn't take a walking tour. One hardly needs one. Just walking on one's own, you can see some great old homes and the riverfront stretch is delightful, what with the swinging seats looking out on the water.

Carly is a born raconteur. She has a vast store of knowledge about the history of Beaufort and its homes and people, and turns that knowledge into engaging stories. Her 2-hour walking tour turned into nearly 2 1/2 hours, because she never hurried those who wanted to get pictures and always spent time answering questions - and was never stumped!... More

My wife and i had a private walking tour of Beaufort earlier in the month with the outstanding Carly Ware. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for Beaufort and the south is superb. We had a fabulous 2 hour walk that was the best ever walking tour we have had in America. Thanks again Carly. Barry & Nicola Gregory
