The tour guide was very knowledgable and enthusiastic of his volunteer job. Would recommend to anyone visiting and it is free. It is a lot of walking so wear comfortable shoes. We had an absolutely beautiful day 76 degrees right in the middle of January. Topped it off with lunch and a walk on the river walk.

Topics included architecture, colorful characters, local myths and mysteries, military and maritime history, and more. The time flew by and I'm seriously considering taking the tour... More

This tour was amazing. Not a drive by. We walked through a cemetery. Davis had interesting stories to tell about the area. He was very personable. I would highly recommend walking the city with Davis.

We loved this walking tour. We thought we knew something about Beaufort since we are locals but we learned so much. Davis has a passion for Beaufort and history which shines through. Highly recommend.

We chose the Free Walking tour mainly because that's what we do when we visit a city if one is available. This one was one of the best that we've ever taken. Davis our tour guide was both informative and personable. We walked at a leisurely pace and he told us more than we will remember about Beaufort. There were... More
