Whether its our daytime, sunset or night tours, no one covers more history and scenery than we do. Don't be fooled, the best view of the city isn't from the bottom of the river but from the highly elevated bridges we will cross for a total of 4 times. Whether its the Veteran's bridge, Market Street Bridge, the Brabson home, underground Chattanooga, the Chattanooga Choo Choo, Bluff View Art District or Coolidge Park, we cover more territory and history in 1 hour than any other tour group from an authentic 1960s open top Double Decker bus. Plus with your tour you will receive a free moonpie and Double-Cola, both made in Chattanooga! « less

Even though I use groupon often this was the first time I used it for a personal service. I printed the company receipt and was told they needed to see the groupon receipt, which I did not bring. He eventually let it go saying he was being nicer than other companies. The tour and his knowledge was wonderful and was... More

Very informative unique trip around downtown Chattanooga! Learned a lot in a short time about the history of the town and the river. What sets this tour apart though is the passion of the owner/driver/tour guide! To do this daily and be entertaining, informing, and engaging it keeping everyone (literally from young to old) glued to the stories and history... More

We made reservations for this excursion while still back home in Wisconsin. We were pleasantly surprised at the history we learned from our guide. Had some difficulty hearing at first but he made sure we could hear him before we got too far into trip. We had an afternoon trip and it was very hot. I definately recommend bringing water.... More

Took this tour today and loved it. It was extremely hot and humid today, but it wasn't too bad on the bus. I do hope to do the tour again in the fall when the weather is cooler. Rufus, the guide, was wonderful!!! Definitely recommend this tour!!!

My son and I stumbled on this tour while walking in downtown Chattanooga on 18 June, 2014. The owner, Rufus, is extremely knowledgeable on the history of downtown Chattanooga, and riding on the top of the bus around town made the experience even that much more fun. The tour took about an hour, and covered all four downtown bridges, and... More

The Tour was about an hour & although we have been to Chattanooga a few times it was very interesting to learn the history. We enjoyed the tour very much. Rufus the tour guide is "extremely accomondating". The speakers on the bus need to be fixed. Good time.

Our guide was wonderful and was careful to make sure the guests were able to hear him. He was well informed about the city and also had a good sense of humor. The ride was very nice because the weather was perfect. We had cloud cover and some wind so we stayed very comfortable. The only thing I would have... More

We took our three grandsons on a day trip outing to Chattanooga with the main attraction being the Double Decker Bus ride. They range in age from 4-1/2 to 11-1/2. We all thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. It was great to see the city from a new perspective atop the classic British Double Decker. Although the weather was hot and humid... More
