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

Jan was our tour guide on the Swampfox Trolley Tour and she was excellent. Very knowledgeable, professional,entertaining and you can see the love she has for this small town just by the exuberance in her smile as she talks and shares information. She was so friendly and gave us a great history lesson of Georgetown that I will forever remember... More

This was a great way to see Georgetown. Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us the more interesting parts of the city. He took his time and even stopped along the way to offer more detailed information. The tour is well worth the cost.

Jan was our tour guide and she was super sweet, informative and upbeat! That really made the tour worth while. The history of the town and the house was interesting. The tour was very reasonably priced, I definitely felt like I got my money's worth. If you are in Georgetown I would definitely recommend taking the tour!!

Took this tour on April 22nd. Very informative on the history of the town and history of many of the homes and their famous visitors. Enjoyed the stop at the church and learning how it has grown and survived when others have failed. Would recommend this if visiting in the area.
