Cart ride thru History
Douglas_H, Jun 2022
Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and friendly. My personal favorite was the historical time line of different occupations.
Very informational and engaging for the whole family especially my elementary and middle schoolers.
Rita_K, Jun 2022
Very informative and engaging tour. The tour guide Pat, did an amazing job. She was able to appeal to our 12 and 8-year olds with the history of Beaufort, authors and movies sets from the beautiful and historic town. My family enjoyed it even more than we expected.

We were canceled due to a broken golf cart. They very nicely informed us and refunded our money. We were so disappointed.
Response from Host, May 2022
We were also so disappointed, as we love to show off Beautiful Beaufort. Our golf cart is fixed now, plus we are working to get a second golf cart so there will always be a backup.
Fun way to see Beaufort

Good overview of Beaufort...
Thomas_J, Mar 2022
Good overview of Beaufort - great history overview - as well as movie references - as much actor homes during filming as actual movie scenes
Touring with sisters!
Beckie_C, Feb 2022
We had a great time. Cathy had lots of fun and interesting stories ; she was able to blend the history and the movies perfectly! She gave us great tips on local restaurants. We will do this tour again.

Thank you for your kind words. You were great guests and I enjoyed showing you our beautiful town. Hope you had a great meal. Thanks! Kathy
Very informative tour, enjoyed it very much
Ken_S, Feb 2022
Parking for the tour was very convenient and free. Our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. We learned so much during the entire tour. I especially enjoyed learning about the origin and meaning of Juneteenth, about Robert Smalls and what he did for our country and for the black community. Discovering Harriet Tubman's contribution to our cause during the Revolutionary War and beyond was amazing. It was fun learning what the crescent shaped object on the South Carolina flag actually symbolizes versus what people think it is.

This was our first trip to Beaufort. Bill did a wonderful job of bringing the history of the area to life. Not only did we hear about historical events but also about the many films filmed here. We thoroughly enjoyed this.

Joyce_H, Jul 2021
Bill was knowledgeable and fun. The tour is an hour and is a great way to get an overview of the history and area before exploring on your own
Response from Host, Jul 2021
Thank you so much Joyce! There is SO much history here in Beaufort, we only scratched the surface.
Informative, enjoyable, beautiful
paula_c, Jun 2021
Taking the golf cart tour with Janet was the highlight of our trip to Beaufort. We learned so much about the history, architecture and the movies that have been filmed in and around Charleston. Janet's knowledge and engagement was delightful and we were disappointed that we had to leave the tour when it ended. We highly recommend this tour! Riding around Beaufort in a golf cart is the way to see this beautiful and historic city and ... if Janet is your tour guide, you will have the best! Thank you for this opportunity
