Mount Airy’s famous Mayberry Squad Car Tours await your arrival! We are located at Wally’s Service Station at 625 South Main Street in Mount Airy, NC.

This is an exciting tour of our historic town and all it’s famous Mayberry landmarks. We’ll start you off at the famous Wally’s Fillin Station, then take a ride down main street and check out all the sites like the Barney’s Cafe, Floyd’s Barber shop, Snappy Lunch and then we’ll swing by Andy’s original homeplace.

This and much more can be seen while taking a trip through the past. If your a true Andy Griffith fan then this tour is a must. Where else will you ever get the chance to ride in a Mayberry squad car. This is an experience you’ll never forget!

What an awesome way to see Mayberry. Toured the town with a very knowledgeable guide, saw the highlights and learned much of the history. Hearing the siren was an added bonus. If you’re going to visit Mt Airy this is an awesome way to get to know it. Starts at Wally’s Filling Station.

My husband insisted that I leave a 5 star review for this tour! I took him to Mayberry for his birthday and he was more than excited. Andy Griffith was his favorite growing up. We enjoyed the tour immensely. There was a lot of information about Andy Griffith, but also about the town of Mt. Airy! It was fantastic. We did the tour as a last minute decision because we didn’t know about it ahead of time, and we got in pretty easily. We did show up pretty early and it was starting to get really busy by the time we returned. Don’t forget to tip your tour guide!

Kenneth was our guide. He was great! A wealth of information. The Fall festival was going on,so we didn't get to ride downtown, but it was still a great tour. Just riding in a classic car was great! And don't think that the quick 5 minutes side trip to see and learn about the granite mine will be boring, it's not! It's actually very amazing!

Reservation was simple and fast. The lady that I spoke with was very friendly. The squad car tour is a must when visiting mt airy. Our driver was very knowledgeable of the town history, andy Griffith's life, each characters life and the andy Griffith show. He kept us laughing throughout the entire tour. We will definitely go on the tour again next time we're in the area.

We enjoyed every minute of our tour. Our 12yr old son actually asked if we could go to Mt Airy over holiday break & take this tour as part of his Christmas. Our guide grew up in Mt Airy & was very informative about the town being known for more than Mayberry. I would recommend the tour to anyone visiting this beautiful town.

We were suggested to ask for Gary... We didn't but we got him anyway and he was GREAT! Very knowledgeable of the town, very funny and a great story teller! He was patient with the kids and encouraged their engagement in the trip. Everyone had a blast and he made us take funny photos after the event... Which we will enjoy for years!

Steve (the fellow on the left side of the pic) is a fantastic tour host and made us feel right at home. Very informative, friendly, and kind. We came during Mayberry Days and thought they'd be pretty full up. But they got us in to a tour in about 45 minutes. We'd read about Steve in other reviews before going so we were excited he was our tour host.Well worth the cost. We highly recommend taking this tour before anything else in Mt. Airy (other than possibly Wally's Filling Station and the Mayberry Courthouse which are right next door) so you get the lay of the land and have a better idea of what you'd like to do next.

We loved our squad car tour. Ray was a great guide to "Mayberry" and it was definitely the highlight of our trip to town. The folks in the gift shop were friendly, and there are some "must-sees" next door as well (such as replicas of Mayberry Courthouse/Sheriff's office, Darlin Cabin, etc.). Come, unwind, relax on the front porch with an RC Cola and a Moon Pie after you schedule your tour and enjoy the time with family/friends!

Nice tour in a vintage Ford Galaxie! Interesting to learn several fun facts about "Mayberry", for instance - Wally's Fillin Station is the original (1937?) and Wally was a relative of Andy's (second cousin?). Drivers are a wealth of knowledge. However, a few pauses in their talk would be welcome to facilitate passengers being able to ask questions.
