The ride was enjoyable although fairly short.The driver was certainly pleasant. I would have rated it higher but their pricing system is unfair. The ride cost $35 in September 2017. I was a single person and I was paired with a couple for the ride....More

This tour for $35 a trip was an absolute must-do in "Mayberry". Although historically not perfect the cars are look-a-likes to the Fords used in the show. Our guide was Steve and he was great! We played with trivia while seeing some interesting sights. Don't...More

The first tour we took was excellent. We returned during Mayberry Days with friends. This tour was not as good as the first. They have around 6 cars with different drivers.
