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...More

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

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.

$15 per person. It is well worth more than that, and we gave a generous tip.
