This was a perfect way to see the city. The ladies that run the tour are great. They were super nice and knowledgeable about the city.
I would definitely recommend this tour!
Very informative! Mira is terrific! She is extremely knowledgeable and made our tour interesting and fun.
Fun, well-paced, and informative. Our tour guide was a college student studying History and a native of Atlanta. Her passion, knowledge, and charisma were a delight.
We stopped in Atlanta for a layover and did not want to stay in the airport all day. So we booked this tour one day in advance for a quick way to see some of the city of Atlanta. It was fun, informative and sure beats staying in the airport. Our guide, Baker, talked the whole time. He answered our questions, showed us several areas of downtown Atlanta, a couple neighborhoods with beautiful old homes, buildings old and new and some of the highlighted tourist attractions everyone comes to Atlanta to see. The electric car he took us in was clean and quiet with big windows for a 360 degree view. This really was just a taste of Atlanta and the tour is driving around for 1.5 hours, but it was very nice for us. You don't get out of the car to take pictures and walk around, but you get to see lots of things you can go back to easily once the tour is over, just by hopping on the streetcars downtown. Thank you Baker.
We enjoyed this tour very much. Our driver, Baker, gave us a good overview of Atlanta and its history.
Totally the best way to see Atlanta especially if you don’t want to walk much or it’s raining. I can’t remember the tour guides name but it was on March 6th. He was informative and accommodating, thanks for showing me Atlanta!
We had an awesome time with our driver going thru the streets of Atlanta. He was very knowledgeable and a real people person. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
This trip was fabupous and I have lived in Atlanta for 45 years. My sister-in-law was in town and this was a delight for both of us. Our guide, Geoff, was very knowledgable and entertaining with all sorts of great stories and info. He gave so may restaurant tips along with info on many areas of Atlanta. I recommended it to a friend and after she and her guests did it she thanked me. You will be glad you took the tour.
Phil was excellent, informative, entertaining, and above all patient!! We struggled to navigate a great deal of abrnomal Atlanta traffic and Phil physically walked to come find us and help us get to our tour despite being late to get started. Could not recommend this tour option more highly!
This was an excellent way to get the layout of the city and learn some interesting facts at the same time.
I learned so much about the city of Atlanta. My tour guide Geoff was very knowledgeable. The electric car I was in ended up breaking down/the battery died right where the new Avengers movie was being filmed. It was neat to see and we got to finish the tour in another car. I highly recommend!
Had a great time! I was looking for something fun to do with my cousins who were in visiting from Massachusetts and this was perfect. Our tour guide was fabulous and had so much knowledge about the city. I have lived in Atlanta for 45 years and was unaware of some of the information he shared. I would recommend this to visitors AND Atlantans too :-
Our tour guide , Nancy, was terrific. She was knowledgeable, happy and just excited to tell us all she knew about her beloved city of Atlanta. The view from the electric car was great. I would highly recommend this tour.
We really enjoyed our Electric Car tour of Atlanta! Our guide, Nancy, was great and was able to share not only her knowledge but her obvious love for Atlanta as well!!
I regret that it has taken me this long to write my review. My 8yr old and I spent the day in Atlanta this summer. Among other things, we took the Electric Car City tour. I knew my son would think that was cool and it really was the best way to see the sites. I reseached and read the comments and was thrilled that we actually were booked for Mina's tour. The entire staff was great but Mina's presentation of her 'adopted' city was thorough and entertaining. We were able to hear well and close enough to the sites to get great pictures. I'm an airline employee and we travel frequently. I always look for a city tour and this was one of the best ones by far. Tip... the pick up point is around the corner from the DoubleTree hotel. If you ask for a cookie, you get a cookie. : They gave us bottled water too.
Nancy was wonderful! She provided so much information about Atlanta. Nancy made what was taught to me in the classroom more meaningful. There were also points in her presentation that were not touched upon in the classroom. Her exuberant personality was the main reason we wanted to ride with her. Thank you, Nancy.
Our guide was very knowledgeable. We had only two days in Atlanta and this tour made the most of one of those days.
This was fantastic. Best way to see Atlanta. Should expand the tour to more areas. I used it to decided want things i wanted to see and then took the public transport or walked to them
