    Sam, our guide, was very professional and wonderful with our horse, Justin. The horse was beautiful and well groomed and taken care of. Sam was articulate and taught us many facts about Beaufort and it’s history. It was a wonderful weekend and added so much to our mini vacation. We will definitely be taking this tour again when we return as I imagine there is something new to learn each time.
