Janet gives a wonderful historic tour of Beaufort, a very charming town on the intercoastal waterway. She is extremely knowledgeable and presents the information enthusiastically. Loved seeing the homes, churches, graveyards, and I learned so much about this area. It was a very enjoyable 2+ hours.

Janet gives a great introduction and overview to this historic and beautiful town. It's a nice two-hour walk with visits to historic antebellum homes, monuments and old graveyards that tell the story of Beaufort's fascinating past. She is fun and upbeat and she includes lots of interesting anecdotes. Well worth the money!

We were lucky enough to find availability with Janet on our one day stopover in Beaufort. We were traveling between Hilton Head and Charleston and thankfully made the decision to take a one day pause to explore Beaufort.
