After 12 years of owning a vacation home on Edisto, we finally took The Pink Van Tour. It was great. Marie is a fabulous tour guide. We visited several plantations, several churches, and learn so much about the hstory of Edisto that we did not know. We will definitely do this again.

We took this tour earlier today and it was excellent! We learned a great deal about Edisto that we were not aware of before. Marie does a great job! Highly recommend!

I left a message for Marie about a tour for two and she got back to me within the hour. We met her at the Serpentarium on route 174- her pink van is easy to spot. Marie took us to two private plantations and told us about their history and the families who had lived there. We also went inside... More

Great tour by Marie on the history of a couple plantations and churches of the local area. She was a local so it was nice to hear this from someone who lives on the island. Thought that her online description said that she served bennes and sweet tea which she did not. It would have been a nice touch to... More

We were hoping for a nice sunny beach week on Edisto but alas, we had chilly and rainy weather, although much better than the New England weather we escaped. We made the best of it by exploring the area after we went on this tour. Marie did a great job telling us the history of Edisto. We went to other... More

Marie took a van load of us on a 2 1/2 hr. tour of the area. She is a native of Edisto and well-versed in the local lore. She stopped at 2 plantations and allowed us to walk around a bit and answered all questions, to the best of her knowledge. We also visited 2 churches which are well maintained... More

The Pink Van tour is great! The tour guide has lived on the island all of her life and knows every nook and cranny. She tells the history and stories of this amazing island (that can be in two hours).Shows you a few plantations and old churches and all the beauty the island has.

Marie is a wonderful tour guide. The tour lasts 3 hours and we learned a lot about the island and its history. We visited historic plantation homes and lovely churches, she provided cold bottled water in the van for everyone and she even brought home made cookies for one of the stops. The price is very reasonable for an interesting... More

Marie is FABULOUS! It was such fun learning more about the plantations that aren't generally accessible to the public, as a result of Marie's -- a local Edistonian -- intimate connections. I'm not sure what I enjoyed most: the historic plantation homes and the stories surrounding them or the equally breathtaking churches with their fascinating stories as well. Marie even... More

Really enjoyed this tour that gave lots of historical information about Edisto. The tour was led by someone who grew up in the area. Being first time visitors to Edisto and planning to spend 4 weeks a year there, we wanted to know more about the early years of this beautiful barrier island. Marie who did the tour was great....
