Are there any age restrictions for those wanting to take the tour?
Any guests under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a guest 18 years of age or older.
Do you make provisions for handicapped guests?
Yes. We want everyone to enjoy themselves. There are portions of the tours that occur on foot, but all surfaces should be safe for wheelchairs. The bus is not equipped with a lift and we ask that you notify us in advance if you need to bring a wheelchair with you so we may make arrangements for storage.
What should I wear?
Be advised that you will literally be walking in the very places where zombies, Margaret Mitchell, and other stars walked. Please wear comfortable walking shoes. You will thank us later. While it’s a new bus, its A/C tends to be a bit bi-polar so please bring a pull-over if you tend to get cold.
May we tip our guide?
Of course! If you think your guide was incredible, we absolutely encourage tips.
Are tickets refundable?
No, sorry, tickets are non-refundable.
Are all the tours either walking or riding?
The tours will include both walking and riding. If there are accessibility issues please inquire in advance of booking the tour to ensure we can be as accomodating as possible.
How large are the luxury coaches?
Our coaches seat 30 passengers. We chose a smaller coach so each guest could experience a more intimate tour, with plenty of Q & A with our guides.
How long are the tours?
Most of our tours, including the Big Zombie Tour are 3-hours and we make every effort to stick to this, but due to traffic conditions, especially in Atlanta, we can run over so please plan accordingly.
May I bring my own refreshments?
The Senoia-based tours begin at the Woodbury Shoppe where we suggest a bit of shopping before or after the tour, and the AMT headquarters is stocked with refreshments and snacks that you may purchase prior to the tours in Atlanta. The coaches are stocked with water and we try to stop at least once for a restroom/refreshment break.
May I bring my dog?
We adore dogs, but know they will not be comfy on our tours. We suggest Green Dog close to our neighborhood for doggy daycare.
Will I see a star?
You never know who you might run into. Bring a camera and be prepared. We ask that you only take stills. Thanks in advance.
Do you require a certain number of guests on each tour to operate?
We require a minimum of 10 guests per tour. Make your reservation for 10 or less, and we will contact you if the minimum guest count is not met.
Are there other legal things about the tours?
Well, yes, there is a Disclaimer of Liability and our Policies and Restrictions, which you will want to look over and which you will be agreeing to when purchasing tickets.
What about after the tour? Where can we review your tour?
We will be sending a follow-up survey and we are listed on TripAdvisor and Yelp and would appreciate any and all reviews! Also we would love for you to check-in on Foursquare!

I have a restaurant, hotel, catering company, event facility, etc. that I would like considered for filming, who do I contact?
Oz Publishing puts out the GA Film & Television Sourcebook every year and for a nominal cost you can be listed, highly recommended! Bribes to production companies work too, but don’t tell them who told you.
I would like my home or business considered for a filming location, is there someone I can talk to about this?
Yes! The Georgia Film Office has everything you need to know about this on their handy dandy “List Your Property as a Film Location” page! It’s like they knew you were going to ask one of these days!
