The young lady who was our guide/driver was absolutely amazing! She knew so many facts! You could tell she had done a lot of research, besides her training. She definitely has a love of history, especially the history of Beaufort! Our only issue was we couldn't remember her name.

Lots to see by way of the tour. Includes the history of Beaufort from its foundation to reconstruction, as well as detailed descriptions of historic homes, their architecture and the people that have lived in them. Well worth the money!!

The tour was great—i am always amazed at the knowledge these guides have—we were initially in the eye of the hurricaine—thought about leaving but realized there was more danger in leaving. You know things are bad when McDonalds closes—

Great tour with Janet lots of regional history and local cultural information as well as film history. Well organized and packed into the hour.

We learned so much about the history of Beaufort. Our tour was both informative and fun. Dean was an excellent tour guide! Highly recommend!
