Henry was one of the best tour guides we've ever had! Such a wealth of knowledge about history and Atlanta itself, we felt like we got several tours packed into one. I highly recommend both Henry and the tour!

Our tour guide, Henry, was very professional in presenting the history of the civil war around Atlanta. It was a full day of facts and fun. Would recommend this tour to anybody who wants to learn more about the history of the United States of America.
So good!

Good overview of the Civil War and how Atlanta was an integral part. Interesting to see the area at the time of the conflict and the city now.
Great tour on Atlanta Civil War and general history.
Edward_M, Jun 2022
Great tour of Atlanta Civil War history and sites. Would not been able to find and go to these sites on my own. Wish we had more time to spend at each site, but that would have extended the tour into days. The private car was great and comfortable and the driver knew how to keep us on the move in order to maintain the time frame to see everything.
Excellent!!
Donna_H, Jan 2022
Henry have an excellent tour!! We really enjoyed our day! The President was visiting Atlanta that day so driving was a challenge. He knew alternate routes and kept our tour on schedule! A must do tour if you want to learn Civil war history.
Excellent tour for Civil War buffs.

Tour of Atlanta and Civil War battlegrounds
Joy_B, Sep 2021
We recently took the luxury car tour of Atlanta including Civil War battlefields and historic buildings and areas of Atlanta and surrounding areas. We were educated on Atlanta’s vast historical significance and events that took place in Georgia. In addition we experienced some of the beauty of Georgia. It was very enlightening and enjoyable. Happily we had Henry as our tour guide!! In looking at other tour reviews we saw every rater raving about Henry’s excellence!! And Henry is truly knowledgeable and well-spoken and willing to share his knowledge with his tour participants! In addition he is an excellent and safe driver and very caring. We highly recommend this tour and any other tours from this company!! Thank You Henry and company!!

Experience the Civil War

For those interested in the Civil War and Atlanta history, this is an excellent tour. I was picked up on time at my hotel. The guide, Henry, is very nice, informative and organized. The places we visited are all interesting. Kennesaw Mountain Park has a great museum. At the Archibald Smith House we had a guided tour and learned much information about the family. We walked around Marietta Cemetery and drove by Oakland Cemetery. Stone Mountain is beautiful. The Atlanta History Center Cyclorama is impressive. Henry offered to drop me off at my hotel or another location. I visited the Margaret Mitchell home the following day with the free pass received, and it is worth visiting for those who love Gone with the Wind. I highly recommend this tour.
