Our lady tour guide was knowledgable of Beaufort history and shared information about the local area. We traveled with two history buff friends, so this was great. She was funny, enjoyable, and we just thought that this tour was outstanding. Thank you!!

The tour guide was very animated and excited to share the movie history of Beaufort, SC. She is a proud native of the area and has the ability make any tour enjoyable.

However, the content was flat and uninspiring at times, which would not necessarily reflect poorly on the tour guide, but is most likely attributed to the lack of interesting content available for discussion in a small town with few movie productions. You are better off searching the locations of the movie scenes and visiting them on your own, especially considering the admission price of $20 per adult.

My husband and I did a tour with our two children ages 9 and 14. Carly was absolutely wonderful! She took time to talk to the kids and make sure they enjoyed it too. She told us not only the history of places but told some of the haunted history stories as well. We have been vacationing in Beaufort for years and never would have known so much of the history of this beautiful town if it weren't for Carly. She made us feel like friends and we really appreciated the time she took to talk to our kids too. My daughter wants to do it again this year! Thank you, Carly!

Carly was a great tour guide...very knowledgeable and fun! Would like to have actually seen the "Big Chill" house, but that wasn't allowed as it is a private residence. Carly's enthusiasm and wealth of movie knowledge made this a great tour.

Carly Ware, our tour guide, made this a real hit! I was expecting a ho-hum movie tour but this was so much more than that. Carly is so knowledgeable about the history of this area that it was like getting two tours for the price of one.
We hit it off immediately because besides being a movie fan, I'm a big fan of Pat Conroy books and the movies made from them. Carly interjected personal tidbits about him, a Beaufort resident, and other notables living in the area. The bus was very comfortable and photo binders from movie scenes were available to refresh your memory of the various movies.
