I did both of the tours they offer and I really enjoyed them, By doing the walking tours you get a lot of the history and interesting facts about Chattanooga and you have time to really look around and take them in. Becky was my tour guide and she did and amazing job.

We met with Keith who soon made us feel very welcome, we walked over the bridge to the park. Returning via the Art district and Museum. We all enjoyed his knowledge of the Civil War battles around Chantanooga area as well as the history of the city. We worth the time. Debbie, Debbie, Colleen, Doloris and Steve.

Did a day trip from Huntsville Alabama. Checked in at the tour desk on Broad St. We choose to do the duck boat tour which was fun and informative. If you choose to do this buy your ticket as soon as you get in, they sell out fast. We got there about 2pm and had to wait for the 6pm... More

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

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....
