Book Your Tour
On-site booking. Can I book this when I get there?
We provide bookings only online or by telephone. It is recommended you pre-book your service to avoid disappointment since we only do one tour per day typically. Again, you can call us at 770-376-0676 with questions. Leave your question in a voice message if we don’t answer. Repeat your name and number twice to ensure we can get back to you.
Booking by phone. Is it better to book online or by phone?
Better to book on-line. Just email us if you have trouble.
Advance booking. How far in advance can I book?
Can you check availability for me?
You can call us but it would be faster than waiting for a call back if you just clicked “book now” to see if your desired tour appointment is available. That’s what we would have to do. Also note that nothing holds the date but payment which is completely refundable up to 24 hours prior to your tour time.
Payment methods, split payments, credit cards and refunds
Rates. How much is a tour? Can you split payments?
$300 up to 4 hours for up to 3 passengers. Using the book now button on THIS website, tourists can make individual payments but we can’t consider hold your reservation until the full payment has been submitted. If you use a different website such as Trip Advisor or Tours By Locals, you will likely be able to make one full payment.
Payment method. How can I pay for my reservations?
All tours must be prepaid by credit card. We accept Discover, MasterCard, VISA or AMEX on this website which is the easiest way to book. A confirmation will be sent to you by email. If you don’t have a credit card you may purchase a single-use “gift” credit card (like AMEX or Visa) to use so you can order on-line. Tours can also be purchased using credit cards or online payment apps such as Cash App, Paypal, Google Wallet or Venmo as long as you are using US currency.
You MUST email us first at email@example.com and get a reply if you DON’T plan to use a credit card. Include your name, complete street address, phone number, desired tour date and time in your email and wait for our reply before using a non-credit card service. But remember, paying via this website is the most efficient way to secure your tour.
Credit Card. I Don’t Have One. I don’t have or own a credit card, how do I book?
If you plan far enough in advance, we can accept payments by money order or cashier’s check mailed to us including your phone number, email address, and street address, AND your desired tour date and time. Suggestion: If you don’t have a credit card, you may purchase a single-use “gift” credit card (like AMEX or Visa) to use so you can order on-line. You can also purchase a tour using credit cards or online payment apps such as Cash App, Paypal, Google Wallet or Venmo, as long as you are using US currency. You MUST email us first and get a reply if you DON’T plan to use a credit card. Include your name, complete street address, phone number, desired tour date and time in your email and wait for our reply before using a non-credit card service. You may reserve and pay via our website with confidence as we use secure servers and process tons of reservations online annually.
Refund. How can I get a refund for my booking?
All credit requests or refund requests must be in writing. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org:
– the full name under which the reservation was made,
– your reservation ID Number,
