Janet is a force of nature. Try to keep up as she walks you around town, giving you the inside info on old and new Beaufort. She definitely has the personality for the job. So much fun.

$25 for the history tour, according to her website and my memory. Janet also suggested a breakfast place beforehand, A bit expensive, but a lovely start to an enjoyable day.
