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....

Great way to spend 2 1/2 hours in Edisto Beach. Marie is sweet, friendly, and very knowledgeable about the history of Edisto Island. You get to see and learn about parts of the area you could not experience on your own. Well worth the price.

I am so glad I took this tour. It gives you a wonderful background on the Island and their life here. Marie is very well informed on the history and adds wonderful personal anecdote to her tour. It is reasonably priced and comfortable. I think the local flavor added so much more than the typical "trolley tour" can.

My daughter and I had a very enjoyable morning with both Marie and Jan. The group was too large to accommodate all the guests in the van so they took two vehicles to ensure our comfort and not pack us in like sardines. We were in the SUV with Jan who is an island native and a wonderful storyteller of... More

Remember you are on Edisto-time and don't get too hung up on when you leave or when you return. Jann is a wonderful story-teller, and even if we weren't actually visiting the places she talks about, we would have been captivated by her personal stories about growing up on Edisto Island. She should record her stories for future generations. LOVED... More

What a wonderful way to see the plantation homes and churches of Edisto Beach, SC. Marie did an outstanding job of telling us the history of the island, the histories of many plantation families including the two families that lived on the plantations we saw and she also was most knowledgable about the two churches we visited, on dating back...
