Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Are these tours really free?
A: Yep! Whereas most companies charge up-front fees for a tour, we want to make exploring Chattanooga accessible and easy for everyone. You determine what the tour was worth to you after the tour. Our guides are self-employed and work on a tips-only basis, so they are working to deliver a high quality tour each and every time.
Q: But why?
A: We believe visitors of all backgrounds and budgets should have access to quality information. And we really love Chattanooga and want to show you why!
Q: Seriously, Chattanooga?
A: Yes! Chattanooga! The Scenic City. Gig City. The "Best Town Ever." There's a lot to talk about in this little town of ours. Give us a couple of hours and we think you'll agree.
Q: Who are your guides?
As we grow, we'll employ enthusiastic guides with personality and a passion for sharing Chattanooga. It's their job to combine history and story-telling to make sure you're captivated for the entirety of the tour. And we promise, as long as you don't wear socks with sandals, we won't herd you around with flags, umbrellas, or megaphones. Deal? Speaking of guides...want to be one? Get in touch!
Q: Do I need to make a reservation or can I just show up?
A: It would help us big time if you're able to make a reservation! Right now we're running tours most Saturdays and Sundays at 10:30am, but we hope to grow to be able to offer tours even more frequently.
Q: How long does the tour last?
A: The tour will last between 1.5-2 hours and it covers about 2 miles. There's no break during the tour, and it can get hot and humid here in Tennessee, so be sure to bring some water!
