My sister and I visited in September 2022 on our way down to a concert in Greensboro and this was the highlight of our visit to Mount Airy, NC. I wish I remembered the name of our driver, but they all seemed like gems. Very informative and interesting tour the entire ride, absolutely worth the price. Driver also gave us plenty of time before and after to take photos in and outside the vehicle. Will take this tour again when I bring my parents to visit.

We had a great tour of Andy Griffiths hometown with Squad Car Tours! Our Driver Steve was great! He told us all about the history of the town as well as Andy and the other famous folks from there, and his own stories were priceless, he should write a book!The car, a 1966 Ford was in pristine condition and my son in law got to work the siren. It was well worth it!

Although weather was drizzling, the tour was amazing! Our driver was cordial and knowledgeable. Well worth it!!
01:35 31 Dec 22

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!

Worth every penny! Full of history, nostalgia, and a true love for the city.

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!
14:20 22 Oct 22
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.

The whole experience from booking our tour over the phone with the lady at the desk, to the ride along tour with our amazing chauffeur, was delightful.

03:52 26 Feb 22
Very knowledgeable drivers. Highly recommend
14:25 18 Feb 22
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.
22:47 13 Jan 22
Gary was very knowledgeable and funny I would recommend him

20:40 06 Oct 21
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!
00:51 02 Oct 21
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.

22:25 15 Aug 21
Driver is a local raised in Mt Airy, plus he knows material about Andy's life first hand. This is a must if you visit Mt Airy.
02:46 10 Aug 21
Steve is an amazing tour guide/squad car driver. Knows the history, the nostalgia generated by The Andy Griffith Show, and how to set an informative and exciting stage for the tour! Very nice person who knows how to treat people, young and old alike!!
02:09 06 Aug 21
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.
23:50 19 Jul 22
Had a great time with Roger & learned a lot.
21:46 10 May 22
Fun way to see "Mayberry" and learn the history. The price is very reasonable and come on.... You get to ride in a squad car!!! N
