What people are saying about Chattanooga

We had the best time on the Derailed Trolley Tour. Our hosts (husband and wife) were great. He was extremely knowledgeable and she was extremely fun. Together they made for a wonderful afternoon. We saw many transportation related areas of Chattanooga and some other areas of interest thrown in just for fun. The train ride on the Tennessee Valley Railroad was authentic and very historical. By the end of the tour it felt like we had spent the afternoon with good friends. I highly, highly recommend this tour. It is well worth the cost and a great way to spend the day with some really fun people. When we come back to Chattanooga, we will most likely do this tour again.
