Our guide was delightful and very knowledgeable. The headsets made it easy to hear her narrative. It was a chilly day and the blankets provided were a toasty plus! Highly recommend!


We had a wonderful Walking Tour with Kathy. This was my second tour with her. My sisters and I had taken the golf cart tour with Kathy in October 2023 and loved it. Kathy certainly knows her Beaufort history and makes it come alive. It’s obvious she continues to research learn about the history she covers. If you go to Beaufort, treat yourself to a tour with Kathy and Beaufort Tours.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our tour through historic Beaufort with Kathy. She was very knowledgeable about the city, from Revolutionary War facts to present day pop culture. Her New York accent may throw you for a loop, but she loves and knows the city like she grew up here. Even with our 1 year old in tow in her stroller, the walk was pleasant and covered in shade for most of the tour. Much of historic Beaufort is hidden in the streets and homes, but you’re guide will let you in on its secrets. You’ll certainly leave filled with an appreciation for this town.


Kathy was our guide! Outstanding wealth of knowledge, but what really stood out, was her delivery of all the information she did it in such a way that engaged all of us. It was like going back in time with some good friends and taking a walk my husband and I could not have been more satisfied! We feel fortunate to have had Kathy as our guide. She also took the time to share other information at the end of the tour to help us make the most of our stay! Thank you . Kathy & Louie


The tour was so informative. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable She could answer our questions and was very considerate.


We went on a walking tour with Kathy as a last minute thing to do. What an enjoyable afternoon. She was knowledgeable, friendly, and definitely a good tour guide. We learned so much about Beaufort’s history and also learned about all the movies that have been filmed there. More than I knew about but a lot of my favorite films. Kathy was quick to answer the many questions that we had which made for a great walking tour. I highly recommend this tour.


Bill was both knowledgeable and entertaining! He will delight you with his depth of knowledge of both the movie and the history of the area


We had a wonderful and informative walking tour in the Historic Area of Beaufort. I would highly recommend walking to get the real feel of the area. So much history and fun facts to learn about Beaufort.


The tour was fantastic and Bill the guide very knowledgeable and friendly! My son sat up front with him and he let him help guide! I had no idea Beaufort had such a rich history! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is figuring out where the tour was leaving from was a little difficult. I think some signage would be helpful.


This was a great tour with Bill! It was fun, engaging and we learned a lot. We were the only two on this tour and felt we got all of our questions answered and learned some legendary information about Beaufort. Bill seemed to know everyone in town and had knowledge of the history as well as the movies shot in the area. If you go, make sure to buy the book about Robert Smalls - great historical fiction that provides real insight.
