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

My parents recommended that we visit Georgetown because they knew that I loved old houses and history. I fell in love with Georgetown. We visited on a Thursday and it was fairly quiet. We decided to get an overview with a tram tour and then go back and visit what we liked best. Great decision. The tour was an hour... More

Our tour guide was amusing, but very knowledgable. The tram was comfortable but requires a step to get in and out. This old harbor city is a gem.

We did this tour yesterday with my 2 daugthers. I'm glad we did as it made our visit to georgetown quite instructive and fun. It was hot in the trolley, but otherwise, we quite enjoyed it. The narrative was a mix of history, romance and ghost stories. The guide was knowledgeable and fun. I would say it's about 1 hour... More

The Swamp Fox tour of Georgetown costs $10 per person and runs every hour on the hour from 10 AM until 4 PM. There is a Jeep that pulls a "tram" which will seat 14. The house, built in 1925, is known as Bienvenue and is loaded with items/souvenirs to purchase. Tickets are purchased inside the house. Brian was our... More

This tour is a MUST for anyone visiting Georgetown!!!! It is a great way to learn about Georgetown and South Carolina's history. The tour is affordable ($10 per person) and worth every penny (and more!). I don't want to spoil the tour by telling you what you will hear but be prepared to be astounded by the vast intake of...

This is the best way to learn about Georgetown in about an hour. The tram driver takes you around the historic section of the town and tells you very interesting details about the town, several buildings, the buildings past/present owners, and different events that took place at the buildings. We even toured the church that Michelle Obama attended as a... More
