Allen did and excellent job showing us around Mt. Airy. Very informative tour. We all had a great time and he took the time to give us directions and take some pictures at the end. Highly recommended.

Best $40 for 4/5 people to take a car ride around the area in the old squad car. Tour I’d narrated by the driver - takes you around to the famed history - well worth the money ! Fun thing to do -

Several cars available for about a 45 minute tour of the town. Great drivers with lots of information, super sense of humor, and theatrics. Worth the money
