Cruising through the city by comfortable coach, see filming sites from 'Driving Miss Daisy', and 'The Blind Side,' see where 'Gone with the Wind' premiered in 1939 and visit the shop that inspired one of Paul McCartney’s albums. You’ll hear interesting stories and facts from your guide, like how more than 700 movies have been filmed here since 1972, and you can even win prizes during movie trivia!

Hop in your comfortable coach in Castleberry Hill and begin your 3-hour tour to more than 40 film and television locations. Your guide, a seasoned actor, will offer interesting commentary about the places you see and will tell you what it’s like to be on set. Atlanta is home to many production including The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, The Blind Side, Achorman2 and more.

Learn about the history of film in Atlanta, where more than 700 movies and 20 television shows have been shot since 1972. Pass the home of Margaret Mitchell, who wrote Gone with the Wind. See the site of the theater where the movie premiered in 1939 and drive down the famous street that the film’s cast walked down to view the film.

Pass quaint, hidden downtown shops and stop for photo opportunities. Show off your movie knowledge during a game of trivia, where you can win some great prizes including tickets to attractions in the city and movie studio swag.

Drive past the temple, factory and Piggly Wiggly from Driving Miss Daisy, and see the restaurant where Michael meets his brother in The Blind Side. To enhance your experience, you’ll watch film clips on board, letting you see the real-life sites in action on screen.

Visit Miller’s Rexall Drugs store, whose wares inspired Paul McCartney’s album title Run Devil Run and featured the iconic storefront on the cover. See where Tyler Perry began his acting career and where Kevin Bacon stopped by for BaconFest.
