Our Guides 


Evelene Stevenson Southern Belle & Storyteller

Hi y'all! I am Evelene the owner of The Spirit of Old Beaufort Tours. I have loved telling the stories of our beautiful town to locals and visitors since 1994. Along the journey I have had a team of storyteller's and guides to help me share the love of our area by walking, talking and singing the stories and songs with me.  Our goal for each person who chooses to walk or ride along the way with us is to help them experience history in an entertaining and educational way.  I am glad you found us on our website, please meet my team of tellers and then come see us soon. Come to the water and "Catch the Spirit" while you visit Beaufort and the Lowcountry Islands!
