Exciting changes coming in the new year

Tour updates for 2016!

The 2015 guided walking tour season for the Atlanta preservation Center was a great success and 2016 is shaping up to be even better.

The Atlanta Preservation Center experienced another wonderful year of guided walking tours in 2015, and the beginning of the spring 2016 tour season is just around the corner. With the new season comes a few important changes that will make the tours even better. In the coming months, the Atlanta Preservation Center will be adding new and exciting features, such as:

  • Three (3) brand new walking tours are to be unveiled this year, starting with the revival of the APC West End Guided Walking Tour as a part of the Phoenix Flies celebration on Saturday, March 20th at 3 PM. Bookings for regularly scheduled West End tours will begin in April.
  • A boost in the total amount of tours, to give everyone more chances to walk all of our great guided walking tours. This includes exploring the possibility of conducting selected walking tours during the weekdays.
  • Adding special thematic tours and one-off tours to give alternate narratives to some our traditional tours and cover subjects in preservation often overlooked. Tours of Vine City, South Downtown and the Underground are all examples of non-traditional tours to be on the lookout for. 
  • Offering a more streamlined online booking experience. Walk up reservations will continued to be accepted, but with online reservations being preferential to take advantage of to-the-minute updates on the status of your tour and easy check in method.

I believe that this tour season will be another great one, with more ways than ever for Atlantans and visitors alike to witness the history of Atlanta before there very eyes.
