On vacation from Scotland we took two tours while in the city and very much enjoyed both. On the Downtown tour Paul had a background in social history and could bring and then integrate his knowledge of the areas and buildings from different periods of history which made sense of the environment, task which would be impossible otherwise. His 90 minute tour stretched to at least two hours and his passion for preservation of the city was evident. Our second
tour was of Ansley Park taken by Gene, and this was similarly entertaining, informative and brought together the social and economic history of this part of the city. Both guides brought their own personal perspectives and a diversity of knowledge. We would have taken more of these tours if time allowed.

We took the walking tour of the Inman Park area of Atlanta. The guide was very knowledgeable about the various styles of architecture and also the history of the area. She gave us information about the people who started the community and their influence on the development of the area. If you like archecture, this tour is not to be missed.

We really thought we were doing the right thing by calling the Preservation Ctr before taking one of their tours but nooooooooooooooooooooo. Big mistake. I don't know which planet these people are from but they definitely don't listen to questions. I can't take a tour in November, 2011 because I need a 2-week advanced reservation? Does that make sense to anyone?
