What people are saying about Chattanooga

This tour is AMAZING! Thomas is an excellent enjoyable relaxed guide. This is the first time our family or 4 has been to Chattanooga and this was an excellent and fun way to see the city and hear the history. Rising the Segway is so much fun. It’s takes a minute to get comfortable doing so but Thomas shows you the way. I’m no time at all you’ll feel ready to go. After the tour we enjoyed some of the local places that Thomas recommended including food, ice cream, and the aquarium. Al of it was great. Overall wonderful experience, you won’t regret taking this tour. Enjoy!

We had a GREAT time! Was surprised we covered such a large amount of the downtown Chattanooga area. It was nice that we were able to get off the Segways, walk a bit, explore, and take some pictures too. We also were able to have "fun" on vehicles. Kudos to Emily!

Both the trolley and train ride was worth the money. Learned a lot and hope to go back to spend time in Chattanooga
