Ghost tour was alright. It was nice seeing the history landmarks and the haunted places, but I've done tours in Savannah and Charleston and this tour had way to much talking it was hard to enjoy it. If the tour guide wouldn't talk so much it would probably Be a lot better! He lost several of us numerous times. We... More

My Husband and I ended up having a private tour since the other group cancelled/didn't show up. The tour guide was so informative about Beaufort history/folklore. I really enjoyed hearing about all the Ghost in Beaufort and seeing where the history took place in Beaufort!! Would love to do another tour again.

Our pirate guide was awesome! He was a perfect blend of funny, scary, and informative. The tour lasted the right amount of time (not too long, not too short). Our 11 and 14 year old kids had fun and loved it. I'd definitely recommend the pirate /ghost tour if you're in the Beaufort area!

Our "pirate" Doug, gave a fantastic tour! He was an extremely good storyteller. He was also excellent in combining storytelling with teaching you history and making you scared all at the same time. He was also very funny at times to break up the fright. We would strongly recommend a tour and be prepared for a great time.

We took the walking Ghost Tour tonight and felt that it far exceeded all of our expectations and was the highlight of our vacation. Capt. Blackwater presented many stories with the perfect mix of history, humor and local myth, all the while, weaving an intriguing web that captivated the audience. A real crowd pleaser and worth every penny of the... More
