I've been coming to myrtle beach since a child, after two weeks in myrtle the family had done everything and were bored. We decided to venture out and explore Georgetown. I'll be honest, I wasn't excited because I didn't believe it was going to be a fun location. Boy was I wrong - I really enjoyed our visit. We started... More

Historical and fun--We even became part of the Homecoming Parade--Jann our Tour Guide--encouraged us to wave as we passed any spectators-- I am sure I saw the oldest live oak tree in the Carolinas-- That Old Swamp Fox really was cunning! We had lots of fun and afterward we dined alfresco on the Main St-- Couldn"t ask for anything more!... More

On my first visit to Georgetown last fall, this tour was recommended by multiple shop owners in this friendly, easily walkable, quaint historic district. My friend and I enjoyed it, and I had to bring my husband on the tour this time, even though I had already gone on it before. He is a history buff, and I knew he... More

We stopped at Georgetown which is half way between Charleston airport and Myrtle Beach. We were a multi - generational party of 9 ranging from 2-76 years. We had lunch at Reflections Grill ( great) and then walked next door to buy tix to this historical Georgetown tour. We all walked to the corner and boarded an open trolley car...... More

We had a great time on the tour. Our guide really knew the history of Georgetown. I had no idea it dated back as far as it did. The old houses and landmarks were really neat to view as we went rode past them. The tour lasts an hour and is well worth $15. I would highly recommend this tour... More

Georgetown has an interesting past starting in 1520 from the Spanish & the Indians before. This tour whets your appetite to explore more & gives you an appreciation of all that Georgetown has to offer historically. Tour could take a full day to learn more about this great City & area although the tiny seats in the tram trailer pulled... More

Plan on relaxing and enjoying one hour of history in the 3rd oldest city in SC. The Swamp Fox Tours (with tour guide and tram driver, Lloyd) gives the story of a town built on rice and progressive ideals. In the pre Civil War days Georgetown allowed and encouraged all its citizens to attend church services together as well as... More

This tour came highly recommended by a friend that had taken it a few times before. However, the quality and placement of the speaker was absolutely horrible. We probably heard less than 20% of the narrative. We asked the guide to turn up the volume and he said it was at maximum. The audible quality may have been better if... More

A jeep pulled tram tour of the historic houses of Georgetown. Very interesting better than just driving around looking. Not expensive

2nd trip to SC low-country & beach was out due to weather. Decided on Georgetown rather than Charleston, from Garden City area. Did a "walk/drive around" on cool afternoon 04/01/13 & enjoyed wonderful meal on harbor. Returned next a.m. for Swamp Fox tour. LOVED it! Interesting, educational, & comfortable. Due to inclement weather, did not return for another day as... More
