First off, I have been to Beaufort many times and know most of the legends of the area. Second I have been on the ghost walk twice. The first time, it was very good and the legends were told in the correct way. We were also lucky enough to see Edward Teach's house from the road. The second time wasn't... More

Alex: Thank you for your honest and thorough review. We understand your frustration with stories changing over time. We make every effort to stay current with the latest research, both written and talking to historians and those who are versed in local folklore and for that reason the stories do change over time.

The tour was wonderful, the tour guide was funny, and the ghosts were active 😊 in front of the old Stewart house (unable to remember the names of the previous owners) while the tour guide was speaking my hair was pulled, just enough to hurt a smidge. Wonderful experience will recommend to anyone.

Not a very scary tour but a lot of informations abut the history of the place, were legends and myths get mixed with real past local people life. Also a great value for the money, only 15$ for about 75 min. And we shouldn't forget our guide who has a real natural talent as a story teller.

Initially, I wasn't so sure about this tour. The beginning of the tour was along the water front and it was windy, making it a little hard to follow the stories, because the guide was faking an accent and was hard to hear, but once we turned off the water front it was very interesting. I've lived an hour from... More

If you are into detailed history stories, then this is for you. The tour was nice and for the price we paid, it was well worth the money. It is a walking tour, at least and hour, so prepare for that ( bathroom breaks, comfy shoes, bug spray, etc). It is a family friendly event. There were two places we... More

This wasn't the scariest tour I've been on, so it is good for kids, and it is historically informative and near a great pub for the adults.

If you love good stories or even just looking at gorgeous houses, then I would recommend this tour. A "pirate guide" takes you around Beaufort (on foot and at a leisurely pace) to tell you about the spooky tales of the historical homes. Being both a fan of the paranormal and a history buff, I personally enjoyed the tour (though... More

Plusses. Nice walk through Beaufort. Beautiful homes, neighborhoods, etc. Our guide (we were on the 8:00PM tour, he looked like Steve Martin) was really good. Great accent (although sometimes hard to understand what he was saying), very interesting and entertaining. I liked the stories about Blackbeard the most of course, as that is what Beaufort is all about. Minuses. Not... More
