This was a side trip that turned out to be very informative. Learned a lot of facts about the Civil War that I didn't know. Was so cool to be standing in the spot that those from the past stood.

This was a really neat place. The tour guide really knows her stuff and did a great job. You ride around on a golf cart, stopping at a few places to look around, and of course the highlight is going through the really cool Civil War era tunnel. Even my 3 yo was entertained by both the golf cart ride... More

Went on this tour on a chilly day. Make sure you dress for the weather and keep in mind the tunnel is quite cold. Our guide did an excellent job of informing us of the history surrounding the area. Nice small museum with interesting artifacts. Most of the tour you are in a golf cart, with very little walking so... More

We took our three year old because he is really into trains right now. He loved it. You ride thru the tunnel on a golf cart while a guide gives you information about the tunnel. We did not go in the museum or take the tour extension. This was really cool and we will come back when he is older... More

My wife and I were headed to the George Disney Trail when we saw a sign about the Tunnel. We turned around on the highway and it was a good call. The Tunnel is apart of a complex with a Heritage Center and a Civil War era home. The guide that took on the tour was very knowledgeable concerning the... More

My wife and I were staying Atlanta for a few days visiting the city and the surrounding counties. I saw an advertisement on a freeway billboard for this place while driving into Atlanta from Orlando. Being a Civil War buff, I decided a side trip was in order. Dalton is a hour and fifteen minute drive north of Atlanta. We... More

First, I'll state that if you (or others in your party) are train buffs or Civil War buffs, then this place would hold extra fascination. Even if you just want to get off the highway, drive ~ 3 miles, see an off-beat attraction, and take an interesting walk, this is worthwhile. Once you exit I-75 and head west, the main... More

This was a wonderful experience that I was able to share with my two grandsons. It was not a planned trip, we had been to the park playing in the creek. When we were leaving and drove by we pulled in and had a great time exploring the tunnel.

Stopped here on a lark while on I-75 S and was impressed. A ton of history with great explanations from tour guides. The majority of the tour was conducted using a golf cart so this tour is good for seniors as well. You can't go wrong for the price of $10.00 per couple.
