The story of the war was exciting, really loved the way it was explained by Dean. Did not know many of the Soldiers name until dean told us. Step by step explanation was wonderful.

My wife and I have taken guided tours all over the world to get the most out of any location we have visited. This was by far the best tour we have ever experienced. We visited Beaufort many years ago and took one of the carriage tours, but got nothing close to what we received from this bus tour. The young lady giving the tour was incredibly knowledgeable, very articulate and really “ into it”. We left with not only so much more knowledge of Beaufort’s past, but a deep understanding of the city’s importance in our country’s complex history. Her presentation of the story of Robert Smalls was inspiring, something else we never expected. The visit to the National Cemetery ( not included in our previous carriage tour) and the wonderful guide’s presentation there had me moved to tears. We would strongly recommend this tour be on the “ not to miss” list.

This tour far exceeded our expectations and the tour guide was excellent. I would highly recommend it. This tour guide was so very knowledgeable of the history of Beaufort and of the buildings in the community. I have recommended this tour to our grandson who is stationed at the Marine base in Beaufort/

The history surrounding the houses & churches during the Civil War & afterwards. Also touring the National Cemetery. I learned a lot about Beaufort. It has encouraged me to read more about the area.
