  • Having the tour guide pretend to be Margaret Mitchell was the highlight of this tour. By speaking in the first person, factual information became part of the presentation as opposed to reciting a series of chronological events. Because of the small tour size it allowed for all to hear. Well-organized and well-paced.

  • Fascinating tour. Learnt so much about Margaret Mitchell

  • One of the best tours we have ever taken! Our Margaret Mitchell was a delight! She was so personable as she told us do much Atlanta history! Our driver was awesome also!

  • This was absolutely wonderful. We have been to Atlanta many, many times and could kick ourselves for not doing this years ago. Our guide was great....she knew EVERYTHING about Margaret Mitchell, her life story, history of Atlanta etc. I highly recommend. Don't miss this. It will give you a detailed, valuable picture into the life of Margaret Mitchell and Atlanta.

  • Excellent tour guide who took on the persona of Margaret Mitchell, made us feel we were taken back to that era.

  • I brought a friend of mine on this tour because of her love of Gone With the Wind! I must say I enjoyed it as much as she did, if not more. The ambiance that you all provide is exceptional and having Margaret Mitchell there continuously giving us background on her life was really a nice touch.

    I would recommend this tour to anyone that is thinking about doing it it is well worth the money!!
