Travis, our guide was fantastic! Not only did he call me back after I hung up on the recording, he scheduled a tour for our group of 4 on a non tour day. He met us at the ferry and was incredibly well informed and interesting. We learned so much history from him. Adding to all that, Travis spent extra time with us. He was responsible for providing us with a fabulous day!
Travis was our tour guide. He was very polite, friendly, and personable. He was also very knowledgeable on the history of the island, and it made for an enjoyable and fun experience. I would recommend this tour to anyone that asks, and my family and I look forward to the next time we visit.
Travis was such an awesome tour guide! Very knowledgeable of the island and we so enjoyed his wealth of history! Pleasant young man to tour with. Highly recommend!
Travis' interesting and informative tour of the island was a perfect kick off to our day visiting the island. We learned the history and unique qualities of this fabulous spot. We got to do a bit of everything - walk, ride, listen, ask questions, get to know the other visitors - it was perfectly choreographed. Additionally, I appreciated the attention given to the specific needs of my mom. Travis contacted me before the tour to confirm and clarify.
We were on Bald Head Island on a rainy day. Our guide, Travis, was most accommodating to make sure we saw as much as we could. His flexibility was much appreciated!
Travis was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about the history of Bald Head. Travis was very friendly and well prepared with bottled water or soft drinks. I would highly recommend him as your guide
Susan was a knowledgeable guide and answered everyone's questions. It was a nice tour around the island. We were a party of 2 adults and there was a group of 5 , 3 kids. Of course they had lots of questions, kid type questions and everyone knows you can't go without answering their questions. I felt like when I worked in the school system, like I was on a field trip. Susan kept checking in to make sure we were ok and checking to see if we had any questions, so she did a great job handling the diversity of the group. We decided to end our tour at the lighthouse as we had had enough. I would recommend this tour though as I felt it was good value for the money and interesting sites. Would have liked a stop at a public beach just to see it.
I thought it was very interesting and the weather was perfect. I love those old trees, the light house, the church, and getting to ride on the golf card. The ferry ride was nice too!
Well worth it, but only thing I wish would've been added, is stopping for maybe 5-10 min, at one of the beach acessses & letting you walk down to waters edge.
Some history was good. More modern details lacking. Exampled---how much do houses cost? What animals live on island. Etc
