    This was a great tour and an excellent way to learn about Beaufort. Janet's enthusiastic love for her town was infectious. She took you to sites that you would not find on your own and explained the history of the area. She also uses visuals which help get your bearings. We had a large, fun group. Fun way to spend a couple of hours.
    Great Tour

    Wynn was the tour guide, who was super knowledgeable. We saw so many areas of Beaufort and learned a lot about the area. It was a wonderful time.
    Great value!
    Rosemary_D, Mar 2022
    Janet was a wonderful tour guide! We had a 15 month old baby and a couple with a dog and everything went swimmingly. Janet was full of fascinating stories about the beautiful homes and the town of Beaufort!
    Highly engaging and filled with lots of history.
    Linda_V, Mar 2022
    Learning about the history of this beautiful town and seeing all the antebellum homes. Janet is so engaging and interesting with how she does her tour you cannot come away uninformed. She uses lots of visuals and stops enough to take breaks from walking. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who has an interest in history. She included geography with her visuals to help understand the time period of this beautiful town. A must see for history buffs and love of old architecture.
    Lovely Beaufort

    Janet is a terrific guide. She is very knowledgeable — and fun! She led a very informative and varied tour through different neighborhoods. Beaufort has a very interesting history and Janet makes it come alive. We will bring new guests and take this enjoyable tour again, providing Janet leads it.

    Our tour guide Janet was so personable & knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. Perfect tour, encompassing a tour through a church, old antebellum home, graveyard and the Big Chill movie home, while giving us all the tidbits & history of Beaufort. A+ tour. Thanks Janet!

    Highly recommended tour
    Natalya_M, Apr 2021
    Our guide on the tour was Wynn. We enjoyed all two plus hours of excellent overview of Beaufort and South Carolina history, culture, and nature. Wynn was not only a very knowledgeable guide - he was clearly very passionate about the subject and he made it a very pleasurable experience (not an easy task for a two hour tour). It was a bonus to visiting a beautiful city of Beaufort and it added to our appreciation of the place. I highly recommend this guided tour.
    Excellent tour

    Surprised by Beaufort!
    William_S, Apr 2021
    Learning about the long history of Beaufort and the role that it played in the Civil War was very informative and enlightening. Wynn was knowledgeable and managed to inject humorous sidebars into his presentation.
