We didn't have a lot of time, but wanted to get a feel for Beaufort. David was our guide, and Honey pulled the cart. David was great in giving us a flavor for Beaufort and it's history. It made me wish we had a night to stay and enjoy the town a little more. We highly recommend this tour!

This was a spur of the moment decision and so glad we did. Our tour guide, Charlotte was informative and funny and did a great job with our horse, Max. The homes and foliage/trees are beautiful and there is SO much history in this town. We will definitely be back with visiting guests. A must do.

We had a great tour of old town Beaufort with David as our guide and Honey as the carriage horse. David was an excellent and knowledgable guide who made the tour very interesting. Honey the horse was great. She wouldn't walk thru any puddlesand seemed to automatically know her way. Thanks David for an enjoyable 50 minutes.You are 5 stars

I have the found the best way to learn about a new area is to take a tour to get a historical overview. Being a photography nut, it also shows me where to return to for photo opportunities. This tour is perfect. It only takes 16 people (4 rows of 4 adults) in the carriage. We sat in the very... More
