This one hour tour leaves from the corner of Orange and Front Streets. You buy tickets in Bienevue shop. $15 for adults. Our tour guide and driver was Brian. He was very knowledgeable and did a nice job of telling the history. You ride open air in a small trolley car that is not the most comfortable but ok for... More

We paid $15 for what turned out to be a one hour tour. The narrator was interesting but the price was too high for such a short experience. We did not actually go into anything but the tram was stopped a few times while lengthy tales were told. We did learn a lot about Georgetown, especially the antebellum years. The... More

Two of my girlfriends and I took this tour and learned so much about the history of Georgetown- we especially loved the gorgeous, stately homes. One friend accidentally left her camera case on the trolley and didn't realize it until we'd left the area. After calling Bienvenue Home ( a beautiful gift shop)where you purchase tickets we found out they... More

This is a wonderful tour of the second oldest city in SC. We enjoyed it so much. I loved when the tour guide sang along the river banks, and then again in one of the old churches.

Take this tour and you will better understand the charm of this low country, inland port. It's colonial history, architectural appeal, restoration efforts, and slower pace are well explained. Lloyd was our guide on the day we visited and he is a treasure trove of information. He addressed us by name and once he heard that I was interested in... More

Great overview of the downtown historic district. I live here, but I've done the tour at least 3 times and I have fun and learn something new every time. Well worth it!

Swamp Fox Tours was terrific! My dog and I were the only ones on the 11 am tour. The guide was beyond knowledgeable and super friendly! I highly recommend them and one of the best $15 I ever spent for a one hour tour!

We were looking for something to do that wouldn't take too long so decided on this tour. I think it was $15pp, should have been a little less. Lasted about an hour. Jan, our guide was super pleasant. Mainly toured the neighborhoods close to downtown and learned about the architecture of the homes, year built and who the former residents... More
