Group Tours

Make a reservation for groups of 10 people or more by emailing the following information to, no later than three weeks before you want to visit:

• The date your group would like to visit. (An alternative date — in case your first choice is unavailable — is always welcome!)

• The time your group would like to visit: 10am, 11:30am, or 1 pm.

• The number of visitors in your party. Please let us know how many children, adults, and seniors/students you expect. (For example, 10 children, 3 adults, one senior.)

• The name, phone number, and email address of the contact person for your group.

• Would you like a storyteller for your group? We think you do. Read up on how to book a storyteller here, and remember: we can’t book your storyteller until we receive your deposit.

The earlier a reservation is made, the better our availability! You may also call 404-753-7735 to make a reservation, but we think email is pretty cool.
