Owner description: 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.

“Great Tour back into history and present day Chattanooga !”
Reviewed October 12, 2011

First, Rufus, the owner and tour guide, has a great personality and very informative about the city of Chattanooga, including all aspects of the history involving the Civil War, present and past businesses, railroad, buildings, newspaper, famous theatre, Coca Cola, Double Cola and Moon Pies. The tour is one hour long and as we sat on the top deck of an English double decker red bus and overlooked the activities of Chattanooga downtown, across the TN River to the northern part of Chattanooga and back through parts of the residential area of downtown, you can visualize the different phases and time period back to the Civil War and the progress to present day. Just a very pleasant relaxing tour of the past , present and hopes of the future.
This tour will be enjoyed by adults and because of the history and nature of the tour,
children will grow bored very quickly. As an adult living in the northern part of Georgia,
for 30 yrs, enjoyed all the history and sites of this tour and a new respect for Chattanooga.

“Rufus knows his stuff!”
Reviewed October 2, 2011

Chattanooga Double Decker and the Chattanooga Ducks provide two of the most unique tours and the only driving tours in the city. Rufus the owner and main tour guide with the beautiful red London double decker bus has obviously done his homework. This guy has is an encyclopedia and somehow keeps the info entertaining which is hard to do with history sometime. Have been twice, once for his regular tour and once for the ghost tour he offers. Ghost tour has some pretty spooky stuff and being in an open top bus makes it even more "exposed" to what evil may be out there! Noticed he changed up the tour not only for the spooky factor but we def enjoyed the more out-there 'adult' version of the tour when we were all on the ghost tour (puns that only adults would get, etc).
