Do yourself a favor and take this walking tour. We did the Bluffs and Bridges tour with Keith Wilkerson covering for Carlton. He did a fabulous job narrating the sites covered. We felt like it was a "private" guided tour as there were only ourselves and one other couple. The tour is advertised as a 90 minute tour, but we... More

Whether you love Chattanooga scenery, history, or both, do yourself a favor and take this tour. We were expertly led by Ginnie Harris, who was both passionate and knowledgeable about Chattanooga and it's storied past. We can't wait to take the other tour!

If you are going to Chattanooga, you owe it to yourself to tour with Ginny or Carlton and do one/both sidewalk tours. Ginny was our guide for an incredible almost three hours where we learned tons of history and heard all kinds of interesting stories about Chattanooga. We had been to the Arts District before the tour but I can... More

Did the Bluffs and Bridges tour with Ginnie. She was a fantastic guide and helped bring the city's history to life! Highly recommended.

It was springtime and Chattanooga was in bloom. Ginnie Harris gave my friend and I a very personal tour laced with enthusiastic love for her city. She intertwined the history and private lives of its citizens. There was significant information as to the role of Chattanooga in the Civil War. The architecture is fascinating and Ginnie provides great detail. Most... More

The sidewalk tour was a wonderful way to learn about Chattanooga. Our guide, Carlton, customized our tour to our interests. He provided well balanced information, combining historical facts with possible myths & when speaking of recent history, included wonderful personal accounts & memories. This combination resulted in an informative & charming experience. Extremely affordable! I highly recommend Chattanooga Sidewalk Tours!

My husband and I love to do walking tours wherever we go. It is a great way to learn more about the places you visit. I searched for a walking tour for our recent trip to Chattanooga and found Chattanooga Sidewalk tours. Initially I had wanted to do both the Bluff and Bridges tour and the Dynamo of Dixie tour....

I love discovering activities that fall under the typical tourist radar, especially ones as interesting and fun as Chattanooga Sidewalk Tours. Two tours are offered and I chose the Bridges and Bluff tour. Part of the appeal was that it encompassed several things on my visit wish list including walking the Walnut Street Bridge, the Bluff View Art District, Coolidge... More

My friend and I loved the Bluffs and Bridges tour. Our guide, Ginnie, told us lots of stories of Chattanooga as we leisurely walked across one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world. We are looking forward to going back to Chattanooga to do another tour.

I have lived in Chattanooga for four years and my only regret is not having taken a walking tour of the city by Ginnie Harris sooner. It was fantastic! Ginnie led us in a Bluffs and Bridges tour and kept us captive with real, breathtaking facts and stories about the area. She has a keen passion for communicating narratives and... More
