This is a “must” for any Andy Griffith show fan. So much fun meeting other fans and learning about Andy’s hometown. Highly recommend!

True Gem. We enjoyed taking a tour in the police cars. They had several years of vehicles which was used throughout the series. Our guide was knowledge about the series. It was enjoyable to walk buildings and look at the collectables.

The ride was enjoyable although fairly short.The driver was certainly pleasant. I would have rated it higher but their pricing system is unfair. The ride cost $35 in September 2017. I was a single person and I was paired with a couple for the ride....More
