We were scheduled for a pick-up time of 10:15-10:30, but our driver didn't come to the hotel until close to 10:45. Then he got lost on the way to the Atlanta History Center, and we turned around in multiple people's driveways trying to get there. When we got finally got there, we were dropped off and told that the guide was coming, and she didn't arrive for 30 minutes where we were just standing there. We then learned that the Smith Family Farm is an exhibit at the center and not something you actually travel to see, and the Swan House is also right on the property - all included if you just bought an entrance to the History Center. We also didn't know that there was a lunch that you would go to on the tour since it's not listed on this site, and although it was good food, we were hoping to spend 4 hours learning history - not an hour walking around and 90 minutes eating. After we had lunch, we were supposed to be picked up by our original driver and taken to the Margaret Mitchell House and around Buckhead, but he didn't show up. We had to uber to our hotel or wait 45 minutes for him to arrive. We were told we would get a refund, but only actually got 50 refunded. I enjoyed the sites, but would've been MUCH better off just going to the History Center myself and walking around. Waste of time and money. Very frustrating.

Shelly is great,sweet guide. We had terrible weather. But if a bummer. Margaret Mitchell house is very interesting, worth the visit. Swan house, wasn't guided... wish it was. The museum was really just visiting the farm, and farm life No tine inside actual museum. You need to book it on your own.
