Georgetown has so much history and our guide covered a 10th of it. He spent a lot of time trying to be charming and bond with the the customers.

This was a wonderful tour of the beautiful Georgetown area and taught us about all of the important historical (and some fun ghost stories). The ride was comfortable and even though the day was sunny it was a bit cool. Our guide gave us lovely quilts to keep on our laps. It was lovely and I would definitely recommend it... More

My wife and I were just walking along Front Street and we were looking at brochures. We came across the Swamp Fox Tours brochure, and decided to give it a try. What a tour. Our guide was very informative. We saw beautiful homes, trees that were over.200 years old, churches. We would highly recommend this tour
