Classic City Tours, operated out of the Athens Welcome Center, provides a full range of tour and transportation services for individuals and groups. Set out on your own with a self-guided audio or podcast tour, take one of the daily guided heritage tours through Athens' historic districts or an in-depth Museum Mile Tour of historic interiors of the four house museums, or schedule a custom tour for your area of interest.

Shuttle services: Rent the Classic City Tours bus and a driver for $50 per hour. Call for availability.
