Beaufort has distinctly regal roots, so it should come as no surprise that one of its most popular local tours is the English-style Double-Decker Bus Tour. Operated in conjunction with the Beaufort Historic Site, these tours take visitors back in time onboard a spacious and classically red double decker bus, which has sunny views from the top level of all of the region’s top historic sites.

The tours launch regularly from the heart of the Beaufort area, and the 1967 English double-decker bus is wonderfully authentic, and adds a bit of British flair to the fully narrated adventure. Once on board, passengers will be transported to a centuries-old world of pirates, star-crossed lovers, and Confederate spies, all while cruising the streets of the waterfront region in style. A number of unique sites are admired along the way, including Taylor’s Creek and the adjacent Rachel Carson Reserve, the Historic Site’s collection of original homes, and veritably every sea-worthy structure in between. Because Beaufort is the third oldest town in North Carolina, there’s plenty of history around every corner, and visitors will be treated to the region’s best stories and legends, from Blackbeard to Civil War Heroes. Tours are available year-round, and are an easily-accommodating vehicle for exploring the history-rich Beaufort community.
