Learned a lot about the old buildings, homes and the characters who lived in them! Journey was our horse power and Debbie was our tour guide and carriage driver (she is a hoot! ). Enjoyed all of her narrative about "beautiful Beaufort"!!!

It's a good idea, especially if the town is busy with visitors. You can book the evening before if convenient for you.
