“Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour”
Reviewed 10 April 2013

Do not miss Jon Sharp's tour when visiting Beaufort! His knowledge of Beaufort and its history, houses and plants is only surpassed by his passion for the area. Our tour lasted two and a half hours and Jon easily filled the time with abundant information. He has a winsome and enthusiastic personality which add to the experience. Well worth the price. And, if you get a parking ticket, he can help you with that as well.

“Excellent tour of historic Beaufort, SC”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour provides a great introduction to Beaufort along with a living history lesson. Jon is congenial, knowledgeable, and entertaining. Even after having lived in Beaufort for 6 years, I learned quite a bit by joining our guests on Jon's tour. Jon makes history entertaining, and the beautiful setting helps as well. I highly recommend this for first-time and long-time visitors to Beaufort.

“Beaufort, SC history comes alive!”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

If you ever have the opportunity to visit the quaint, little town of Beaufort, SC, make time to go on Jon Sharp's Walking History Tour. Jon is extremely congenial, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and passionate about Beaufort. The two hour, two mile walking tour was delightful, interesting, and informative. I learned so much about Beaufort's history, architecture, and vegetation. Hold your questions as Jon is sure to reveal the answer by the end of the tour. The walk was picture perfect.

“Fun, lively, and fascinating”
Reviewed 18 March 2013

Another great afternoon with Jon. This was our second(or was it our third?) tour with Jon, he delivered once again. Don't know how he manages to keep his material and delivery so fresh time and again but I think it comes from his deep love of history and the people of our beautiful Low Country.

Outstanding! Don't miss. Educational and entertaining. A whole different level of touring. A bargain. You can't go to Beaufort and not sign up for this experience. John Sharp makes it a unique and memorable visit.
