Atlanta is home to tour companies that suit every interest and hobby. Whether you're looking to stroll among the Walking Dead filming locations, sip the city’s best craft brews, or learn about Atlanta from the ground up, here are three of the city's most unique tours.
Atlanta Movie Tours
The state of Georgia has become the “Hollywood of the South” for its incentive-based program that brings in film and television crews. Atlanta Movie Tours took advantage of this and now runs tours boasting the city's most beloved filming locations. Their "Walking Dead" is the most popular, with tours downtown and in Senoia, showcasing places like the CDC, better known as the Cobb Energy Centre, and the Woodbury set.
Other tours visit landmarks from Driving Miss Daisy, Remember the Titans, and The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Atlanta Movie Tours also runs a "Gone with the Wind" tour that shows guests Atlanta from Margaret Mitchell’s perspective.
Atlanta Brews Cruise
Craft beer enthusiasts can visit Atlanta’s best breweries and brewpubs car-free with Atlanta Brews Cruise. Founded by Sandy Roberts, a local craft beer lover, the tours begins at Five Seasons on the Westside, where the expert brewers will school you on the brewing process and the types of beer they offer. From there, you’ll be taken by van to one of the area’s most sought-after breweries, including Sweetwater, Red Brick, and Monday Night Brewing, in addition to Marietta’s Red Hare and Wrecking Bar Brewpub.
Unseen Underground Tours
Unseen Underground introduces visitors to the history of the city through its lesser-known hidden gems. Urban explorers will appreciate this walking tour, run by guide and architect Jeff Morrison. Lace up your sneakers to meander though the railroad gulch -- it's here that Atlanta first began as Terminus --and continue though the end of the Terminal and Union train routes.
