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

Tour was fantastic, I love when a guide knows so much information and presents it in an interesting manner.... More

Our "driver" and tour guide (Jennifer) was amazingly knowledgeable about the historic section of the lovely town of Beaufort. We were very lucky that she happened to be on duty that Wednesday, July 6th! We were not only luck to have gotten her, but also lucky that the horse was "MERLIN" a very sweet and experienced steed! Because Merlin was... More

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.

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!
