After a day filled with a lot of walking, it was a lovely break to be driven around for an hour and learn about the history of many off the historic homes and buildings from our personable and knowledgable guide/driver. Interesting and fun tour.

I've taken this tour three times and highly recommend it to visitors for getting a sense of Georgetown's history. Plus, I just like saying, "Swamp Fox Trolley Tour."
