Best $40 for 4/5 people to take a car ride around the area in the old squad car. Tour I’d narrated by the driver - takes you around to the famed history - well worth the money ! Fun thing to do -

If your question is "what are the names of staff at Mayberry Squad Tours?" I cannot answer that. I have no idea. So sorry! Our driver was very friendly and informative but I don't even remember his name now.
