Chattanooga Double Decker is the most scenic and historic tour in Chattanooga! 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 Lookouts stadium, the Brabson home, underground Chattanooga, The Tivoli Theater, the Chattanooga Choo Choo hotel, Warehouse Row, Bessie Smith Museum 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.

Seeing the city on this dd bus was fun and exciting. Driving around town and over the bridges listening to an informative narrative and hearing some cool Chattanooga tunes was awesome. Do this tour when you first arrive in Chattanooga and you will find some great places to visit.

Tour had to be postponed a day because of bus mechanical problems. Once we got to go the next day, I really enjoyed it! It provided a good view of the city with interesting facts about the history of Chattanooga.

The tour was absolutely wonderful! The owner of the bus howevever was not so pleasant. My group found him very rude and not friendly.. After we departed the bus back at aquarium, a older man and woman asked him how do they book the bus. "It's called the Internet" was his exact words then he drove off. Our city does... More

This is a great place to start if you've never visited Chattanooga before. Sitting up top the bus was a unique and enjoyable way to get an overview of the city. The historical info was very interesting & entertaining. We also got great tips on places to visit & the finale was particularly delicious with a double cola & mini... More

Rufus, our driver was great! Wonderful for history buffs. It is an open air bus, so I would not recommend going in extreme heat. Definitely wear sunscreen. Tour is two hours long and well worth it.

I suggest doing this first. There's so much history you'll learn about and find out about other interesting places to visit. My teenagers enjoyed the ride and my toddler was ecstatic because she's read about double decker busses from the Thomas the Tank Engine series. The guide was friendly and accommodating as well.

Chattanooga was a stop over on the way to Nashville. We took the Chattanooga Double Decker tour with owner/operator Rufus. We learned quite a bit about the city on this tour and were able to see the highlights. It is quite a comprehensive tour. Rufus did a magnificent job. I highly recommend this tour on your trip to Chattanooga, or... More
