    Amazing tour
    The company has very nice service. Prompt resonpse. Our guide, Jay was very kind and tried to make us feel comfortable while the tour(even before the tour). She also introduced the entire history and culture of Atlanta city to us during the transportation. We were very happy to use the group tour at such a reasonable price, and hope to use it again next 비지니스 일정으로 손님분들 모시고 짧은 하루동안 투어를 하게되었는데 매우 만족스럽습니다. 보통 다른 회사에서는 차량 지원까지 일인당 100불정도를 요구를 하는데 오히려 구릅투어라고 저렴하게 제공받았습니다. 적극 추전합니다.

    Misleading description, do not waste your time ( and money)
    We booked the tour after reading the description that we would have a guided tour of 2 historical home (Swan house and Smith farm) as well as the Margaret Atwell apartment. The tour started late and we got dropped off at the Atwell home where we did take the tour with the guide there. Then we drove to see the Swan house but could not tour. (Wedding? They should check in advance and make accommodations for their customers). Then the driver took us to the former garage of the swan house which is now a restaurant and “dumped” us there to have lunch ( and tour the gift shop). I overheard that she was dropping another group there at 2 pm. After an hour she picked us up and announced it was too late to visit the smith house so we drove past the governor mansion and drove to some areas of Tuxedo to see expensive from the van and go dropped off in a hurry at our hotel. This is NOT what we paid $65 each to see. Had the tour guide been on time, and asked for our opinion we could have at least seen the governor’s mention. They wasted my time ( worst offense) and my money. I understand changes of schedule and unpredictable events but this is NOT what we reserved and paid for.

    Southern Homes Tour
    Love this tour and this tour company! Shelley made us feel right at home, as she shared the very best of her home town. We got to see and hear all about several key homes and a drive through all the Atlanta neighborhoods. Easy online booking and they stayed in touch with me from the time of booking to the moment they picked us up.

    Tours of (Four) Atlanta Attractions
    We visited Atlanta for six days in November 2016. During that time we took five tours, four with Great Exploration Tours. From beginning to end, our experience was positive. Shelly, the office manager, coordinated our visit through our local AAA representative. Once we arrived in Atlanta, Stephanie was our tour guide on four tours. Always, she was prompt, prepared, and professional. As an added bonus to our scheduled tours, she took us to the Governor's Mansion where we had a personal tour--just us--and met the First Lady of Georgia. We are still smiling and would recommend Great Exploration Tours to others. Judy and Al
