    Typically tours are booked in advance only. We run our tram tour on a schedule approved by our various location stops beforehand. If you don't plan ahead and have a pre-booked appointment there is a good chance all available seats will be sold out. However, you can always call our tour office and see if there is an availability for tours we can't guarantee we will be able to accommodate you. We strongly suggest booking far in advance to secure your tour.

  • Do you ever have celebrities join your tour or do you ever see filming?
    It is always a possibility but never a guarantee.
  • Why did I not get to see the Salvatore House from The Vampire Diaries on the tour?
    The original Salvatore Boarding House was filmed for the first season of The Vampire Diaries at the historic Glenridge Hall Mansion in Sandy Springs. However, for season 2-8, the building was reproduced in a set at the studio. Sadly, the original manor from 1929 was demolished and all its magnificent gardens and surrounding forest were razed to the ground in 2015, to make room for urban development.

  • Is our website correct? Are you really sold out?
    YES. Our website updates as soon as a booking is made or added. Covington is seeing record numbers of fans visiting and taking our tours. We thank you but it does make it harder to book last minute. However we do try to add more seats and tours for each month when home owners approve us being on property longer than approved in advance. We suggest you check the website around the 15th of the month before you are coming a few times a day until you see seats added. We try to add several seats for every tour.
