Ken had a wealth of knowledge he shared with us during the tour and a great sense of humor. We were pleasantly surprised we liked the tour so much and would highly recommend it to all who come to Beaufort and want to know about its houses and history and films.

Charlotte and our animal guide, Cisco, were delightful. This is one of the best ways to tour this beautiful town while leaning interesting history dating back to the founding. The pace is perfect to allow time for many photos and you have a great sense of what it would have been like, traveling the streets of antebellum Beaufort.

Charlotte the driver and Jake the horse gave us a great 55 minute tour of historic Beaufort. The tour was very informative of what was happening present day and historically, including movies that had been shot here. Very relaxing and enjoyable, very much like the city of Beaufort. We were pleasingly amazed about how kindly Charlotte treated Jake, apparently all... More

This was a great way to see the town (especially after 3 days on our feet walking Charleston). We wouldn't have seen much of the town, or understood it's unique history without the narrative. Well worth it!

We were on our way up to Savannah to spend the night but our son and daughter-in-law had a surprise for us before heading south. They bought us a tour with Southern Rose Buggy Tours. Oh, what fun. You sit in a buggy pulled by horses and the tour guide points out all of the history in Beaufort. No matter... More

When we planned a quick visit to Beaufort, we had no idea that it was such an historical and interesting place. We started our trip at the Visitor Center, where they suggested this buggy tour and we loved it. It is a great overview and history lesson. My only regret is that we did not have more time allotted to... More

The carriage ride was a delightful way to get oriented with the layout of the town and help give us focus for the rest of our adventures. Our guide was very informative. A lot of history, as well as stories about the people. I would deginitely recommend.

My wife and I visited Beaufort for our anniversary weekend. We wanted to learn a little about the history of the city, and read good reviews about this tour. It didn't disappoint! The tour departed on time, out guide was a wealth of information, and we left knowing a lot more about Beaufort's history! I would highly recommend the tour.

Our guide was very well informed and knew her history. This was a great way to learn about Beaufort and its tremendous architecture. Beautiful antebellum homes and the carriage was a super way to tour the city. Price was very reasonable for what you get. Highly recommend.
