Had a very good trip to Daufuskie Island, the boat ride was very nice. Was a little hard to find the building for Daufuskie Island Ferry, better directions for the building itself would have been helpful. Once on the island I and my friends went on the SallyAnne Robinson Tour, she was absoultely Finding the building for the tour was a bit difficult, better directions for the building itself would have been helpful. We had good weather so the ferry ride was very enjoyable. Once on the Island we decided to go on the SallyAnne Robinson Tour which was just great! SallyAnne made the tour! 6 generation Gullha from the Island. Such history and she has done & is doing so much for the island to preserve its history...this tour is a must see!

From start to finish, all of the employees with Tour Daufuskie were very helpful and friendly. The booking person (Lorilee) clearly answered my questions, and provided great directions to where we would pick up a shuttle at their Visitor's Center in Bluffton. The parking was free. Everything went smoothly from parking, to picking up the shuttle, to boarding the ferry approx. 5 min. from the Visitor's Center. The young lady at the Visitor's Center was very helpful with questions from us and other visitors. She must have answered the same question repeatedly, but was very patient and so nice. There was also a small gift shop inside. The shuttle drivers were friendly and courteous. The crew at the ferry station (Buckingham Landing) was very pleasant while politely answering any questions. Directions were given in a courteous and professional manner to the entire tour group. The ride over to Daufuskie Island took around 35 minutes. We enjoyed the beautiful waters, views of what I believe were oyster beds, and nearby islands like Hilton Head. The ride to the Island and back to Buckingham Landing later that day gave us a chance to see some beautiful views of dolphins gliding in and out of the water. Upon arrival at Daufuskie Island, we found the Tour Daufuskie kiosk right away. It was there that we picked up our pre-reserved golf cart. There were 5 or 6 other couples who were in our tour group, each with their own rented cart. The young lady who checked us in (Anna Clark) also happened to be our guide. Wow, was she terrific! Very knowledgeable and personable. Communicated so clearly. Her knowledge of Island history and special sites was very thorough and interesting. She gets an A+ rating from us! If I had one wish, I would like to see a little more time for lunch. The time spent on the tour was 2 hours (11 a.m. - 1 p.m.), and there was plenty of good information to talk about during lunch - if time permitted. But toward the end of the tour we had to keep our eye on the clock to avoid missing the 2:30 p.m. departure time for the ferry back to Buckingham Landing. Otherwise, we would have had to wait for the next and final ferry at 5 p.m. So by the time we finished the last stop on the tour, we had 20 minutes to make it to the restaurant (in a slow moving golf cart), have lunch, and get back on the ferry. So when we arrived at the Old Daufuskie Crab Company restaurant, it was very busy and a bit chaotic. Just about everyone was eating outside on picnic tables or high tops at or near the bar. All diners had to give their orders to 2 bartenders. A pager-type device was provided to tell us when our order was ready. A restaurant "runner" would bring the food out with several meals on her tray, and then look for customers in a large, open-area setting. We were sweating it out waiting for our pager to go off. By the time it did, we had 15 minutes to return our cart and get to the ferry. So instead of a nice relaxed lunch during this beautiful sunny afternoon (82 degrees), we just grabbed our lunches and ran back to our cart. After dropping off the cart, we quickly ate our food before boarding the ferry. My wife loved the deviled crab (which was not really enough for a lunch, but who knew? She should have ordered 2. They were around 8 bucks each.) My mahi sandwich was very well portioned with fries on the side. The fish was nicely seasoned and delicious. Unfortunately, because I had to eat in a rush, it was not so comfortable on the stomach. Anyway, we loved everything about this tour and would highly recommend it if you want to experience an island with a rich history. But you might want to consider spending the entire day there, or renting a place for a few days. I hope to go back and enjoy some of the other tours offered by Tour Daufuskie, and spend some time on the Island's public beaches. (P.S. During these Covid times, the company took all precautions for the safety of their customers.)

Tour Dahdhskie took care of our ferry tickets and gold cart rental. Provided a decent map of the island as well. Golf cart was clean, in great shape and easy to drive. Easy to adjust our plans as we decided to stay longer. Would recommend your Daufuskie if visiting the island.
