OMGOODNESS I so wish this was our 1st activity at the beginning of our visit. This tour was so awesome and loaded with so much information about Atlanta. After doing this tour my daughter and I had even more ideas of sites we wanted to visit. There is soooo much to do. After this trip I wish we had more time to do more. If you can make this tour your first active during your visit. It was great!!

Great guide with lots of fun facts! All the essential highlights of Atlanta in this tour. Definitely recommend as a quick way to dip your feet into Atlanta’s rich history and unique attractions.

Right on time and the ppl on the bus were nice and very funny. We’re willing to take questions. There was a game (college) so that made things a little more difficult

Great tour of the city for 1.5 hrs. Tour guide was very knowledgeable. Learned a lot of history in short amount of time.

It was an excellent tour. My husband and I truly enjoyed the experience.
