Excellent tour around historic Georgetown! We were fortunate enough to have the trolley and guide all to ourselves during the slow tourist season to our surprise! Learn all the details of historic residents in the town's past, the port, early and current commerce. Tour guides tested and certified. Time well spent!

Hour long tour around downtown Georgetown where the tour guide just rambles on about different stories about historical houses you drive by. Could be better if he didn't talk non stop the entire time and he told you more about rich history and not about "who" lived where.

This was a very fun tour. A smidge bumpy, if you have a bad back, not for you. One of the families on the tour had an elderly mother with a walker. They accommodated her, and used a stool for her to get in the cart, she did fine. Love architecture? This is a great tour. Love history? This is a great tour. Love gossip? This is a great tour. Also included at synagogue and wonderful Jewish cemetery. Money and time well spent.

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. After the Rice Museum and the Georgetown County Historical Museum, it was a major disappointment. Go to the welcome center, get their free map of Georgetown, -and drive slowly or walk to learn the history of this beautiful town.

This was my second tour with Cap'n Rod, and I have to say that the second time was even better than the first! Cap'n Rod is funny, entertaining, and educational. I love that he told us much about the history of the area. I also loved his personality. He got us to Shell Island ahead of all the other tours to the island, so that we got first pick of the shells. We also got to spend about 1 1/2 hours on the island. Plenty of time to explore and collect shells or driftwood. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
