You remember that one aunt who was the most fun, but at the same time you knew she'd run a knitting needle right through your hand if you tried to grab an extra piece of her rhubarb pie? Well, she is doing walking tours in Beaufort S.C. now, and hasn't lost a step. Although she never actually produced a knitting... More

Because of reading previous reviews, my husband and I did not want to miss Janet's tour of Beaufort so we skipped breakfast and raced up from Hilton Head to be there by 11. We're so glad that we did! The tour was comprehensive, perfectly paced and filled with all the local history, anecdote and information you could ask for. Janet... More

As a new resident of South Carolina many neighbors have recommended Janet's tour. A visiting friend and I had the great pleasure of joining Janet on a beautiful Carolina Saturday for a remarkable and educational journey. Janet's enthusiastic personality permeates her presentation of historic Beaufort thru the eras. You will come away with a solid understanding of local culture and... More

I have taken three walking tours with Janet and I'm not stopping there! Every time I have someone come stay with us, I won't let them leave without Janet's history of Beaufort. And each time I'm still learning. It is never the same. She is the best and I recommend it to everybody.

I've bring guests to see Beaufort often. I've done the horse drawn carriage tours, but Janet's tour was the best tour by far. You will get much more history and see all of the highlights in a leisurely way. Janet's sense of humor is the icing on the cake! Her pricing is very reasonable as well. Highly recommend her!
