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.

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.

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!

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.

Wynn did our tour, and he was excellent. He did a wonderful tour and had lots of interesting facts about the historical homes in Beaufort. He was also very knowledgeable about the history of Beaufort. We were very happy that we signed up for this tour, and even though it rained, it was a wonderful experience.
