Ms. Dottie is great! She grew up on the island and knows her history. We went to several plantations and churches and listened to great stories the whole time. Both of our kids (10 and 6 yr old boys) really enjoyed the tour. Don't miss this one

We just loved the tour Miss Dottie gave us of the island. Her knowledge of the history, her sweet disposition, and her love of sharing made our tour with her just special. Take this tour early in your stay on Edisto so that you can go visit (or revisit) places she points out and speaks of during your tour. Her Benne cookies (from her own mother's recipe!) were a wonderfully delicious treat at the end of our time with her.

For our tour of Edisto, we used Dottie's Tours (843-869-1984). Dottie is a lady of a certain age from an old Edisto family, very charming and extremely knowledgeable of the history of the island. The two hours we spent with her were fascinating. Highlights of the tour included two plantations (which we drove around, since they are inhabited) and a detailed visit to the wonderful Presbyterian Church dating from 1830 (the congregation is much older) with its lovingly-restored interior--all supplemented by her wonderful and impressively detailed commentary.

This is one of the best tours we've ever taken. Dottie was fun, had lived her whole life on the island, and gave a great tour. She knew everything there was to know about the history of Edisto. The flier said it was a two hour tour, but it was the off season and not busy, so she actually gave us about a two and a half hour tour. The tour was in a van, so for those who want to take the tour in the summer, you will have air conditioning! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a tour of Edisto Island. Phone number is 843-869-1984.
