Had a wonderful experience. Ashby is very knowledgable and has written a well-illustrated book on fossils - A Beachcomber's Guide to Fossils. He’s a natural educator, who knows how to make fossil-hunting fun. I would absolutely do this tour again, and I recommend it for all ages.

Ashby effortlessly made sure everyone on the Folly Beach Adventure (July 2022) had his undivided attention throughout the experience. Always available to answer questions, and took the time to make sure everyone was finding something - sharks teeth or fossils of some type. At the end of day, he sorted our collections and provided a great description of the best finds while we were able to video for keepsakes. The kids on our trip are already talking about going again next year.

My favorite part of the trip was finding my first shark tooth. Ashby is an amazing tour guide. Very knowledgeable and is as excited as you are when a fossil is found.
