Our carriage ride was the first one of the day........we had ample room to see everything without having to be contortionist........ Debbie our tour guide was fantastic, being a story teller, she was a bit of a comedian........with her southern accent, she was terrific.

Take this ride and you will learn about the history of this great town. From the early days to the civil war to today the guides give a great trip and know their town well

Our horse was Newman, all of my family fell in love with him. The tour guide was fun and told great stories of Beaufort and the history came alive for us. I even got kissed by Newman! Never been kissed by a horse before!

We had a great tour of Beaufort with Debbie our guide and Journey our house. What a great time. Beaufort is really interesting and Debbie was informative and very knowledgeable. The experience with Sea Island is highly recommended.

Took the tour - lasted about 75 - 90 min. Guide was knowlegible and fun. Lots of history we did not know about (and would not have known) unless for the tour. Good deal.

This was to costly for what it was you only go down one street to do the walking tour if you can walk would be much better. But it was terribly hot the day we went so maybe it was a shortened version.

The visitors center suggested this buggy tour and it was really worth it. A nice slow buggy tour of the houses and historical p;arts of Beaufort was excellent. The driver was knowledgeable and answered all of the questions that were asked of her. When we wanted to take a picture she stopped the buggy just to make sure that our... More
