Janet is a Terrific Tour guide! She Shared so many interesting and detailed stories about Pat Conroy, the time just flew by. From each beautiful tree & nature spot, to gorgeous historical homes, destinations, & movie locations, Janet made Pat’s literary history come to life. I have to bring friends when I return, to experience more Beaufort Tour adventures, and historically beautiful Beaufort, South Carolina!

We had previously taken a horse drawn carriage tour that was lovely, but this was SO much better. In the golf cart we were able to cover so much more of beautiful Beaufort. Our tour guide Kathy was energetic, articulate, knowledgeable and fun! We thoroughly enjoyed all the information on Pat Conroy and his amazing life and work, but Kathy also gave us a lot of history and told wonderful stories about Beaufort and its main characters. I highly recommend this or any of the golf cart tours to Beaufort visitors.

We had a fabulous experience on Janet’s guided tour. After spending an hour at the Pat Conroy Literary Center and getting much more familiar with his life & family history, we had a lovely tour of the beautiful, historic neighborhoods in downtown Beaufort… areas that Pat and actors in his movies frequented. Learned more about his family and visited graves of his parents and an influential creative writing teacher. Janet’s admiration for Pat Conroy was evident and she eagerly answered all of our questions.

My mother and I came to Beaufort for a Pat Conroy weekend. My mother has a hard time getting around due to vertigo, so I thought a golf cart tour would be perfect. Janet, our guide, was incredibly accommodating and knowledgeable. You could tell she wasn’t just doing her job, but her love for Pat Conroy came through in her presentation. I would highly recommend this experience, and Janet, to anyone!

I’ve read almost everything Pat has published. He is one of my favorite authors! This tour is a MUST for lovers of Pat Conroy’s body of work. Interestingly it was also fun for my companion, who has no idea who Pat Conroy was, but loved the historical & architectural aspects of this tour.Our Guide Janet was outstanding. A personal friend of Pat’s, she was knowledgeable about the places we toured, and her background as an educator, shown through as she imparted various bits of knowledge which tied back to Pat’s various books. She also gave great references for follow up reading and learning more about Pats Life and his family.One of the best tours I’ve ever taken! Loved, loved loved it! If you love Pat Conroy’s work, DON’T MISS THIS TOUR.
