Have been on this 4 times now. I learn something new/different each time. What a gorgeous way to learn the history in Beaufort. The only reason I gave a 4 star is the cost. Can get expensive if you have a family or guests in. They offer a $2 off coupon online, but no 'locals' discount.

We recently moved here to Beaufort, and had company that we wanted to show the area. We took the morning tour and Jennifer and Dave were both knowledgeable and fun during the carriage ride. We learned so much history, and viewed the historical district and the homes up close. Simply stunning and so interesting, with added humor from our guides!... More
