Unexpected surprise
Our guide was fabulous and funny. The entire experience was a wonderful surprise for having never been to Beaufort. It was on time, comfortable and really gave the history of the area. Loved it.

Great narration as entertaining as informative.
Oct 2021 • Couples
I'm from Charleston and the history of Beaufort is so much more interesting than any tour I've been on. They had Civil War history of course but the literary history of movies and lives and such was rich. The guide was female and I forget her name. She was as entertaining as knowledgeable. Long hair brunette.

Awesome and excellent horse carriage tour
Oct 2021
This was one of, if not the best, carriage ride I have been on ever. The tour was full but the guide made everyone feel safe and comfortable. Anastasia was knoweledgeable, humorous and truly engaging. You could tell she really loves her job.

Daughter surprised me with a carriage ride for my birthday. Guide very friendly, funny with interesting information. Ride was pleasant without feeling rushed. horses were checked often with plenty of treats, rest stops & water. Guide was willing to answer any questions and seemed very knowledgeable about local history.

Carriage Ride in Beauford SC
Jul 2021
Our guide was excellent. We learned a lot of Beauford history plus the scenery was beautiful. The tour guide was funny and informative. Can't remember her name but she was the most petite guide running Phillippe the largest and most beautiful 2400 lb horse. I asked many questions about the care of the horses and am convinced that the horses are loved and well taken care of. Rest and water and hosing down in between rides. It was a very well run outfit. When navigating the busy main street someone from the office would meet you there and control traffic while you crossed. Beauford is full of southern style mansions dating back 300 years in some cases as well as rich in movie making industry and you find out what famous actors lived there and saw where many scenes were filmed. Probably the best carriage ride we've experience and would do again on another visit. Well done Southurn Rose Buggy Tours.

Great tour!
We had a great tour with Anastasia. The history and humor were on point!! Loved learning more about Harriet Tubman and Robert Smalls. We also enjoyed lunch by the river after our tour and treats from Chocolate Tree.

Great overview!!
We had a very positive experience. Our guide was friendly and a local... knew a lot, and made great recommendatios. Her delivery was energetic and she was interactive. We'd never been to Beaufort before so it was a great orientation. I also appreciated hearing about their policies on caring for their horses, Phillippe was a sweetie. Terrific way to see a beautiful city!
