Atlanta's Haunted History Tour and Oakland Cemetery

Our Haunted History Tour ended on November 8th for the 2009 tour season. Do not fear, it will return beginning the first week in March, 2010.

The tour formed a great partnership with the Oakland Cemetery. In 2008 the cemetery was hit hard by the March tornado. We here at Atlanta Trolley Tour Line wanted to find away to assist the cemetery in the efforts to clean and preserve this most important location in Atlanta and its history.

A portion of all ticket sales from the Haunted History Tour were given to the Historic Oakland Foundation. We we able to give back to the foundation $1,400 during the 2009 season.

Plans are now in the works for an expanded Haunted History Tour for the 2010 season. Oakland Cemetery is a part of those plans. We are very much looking forward to working with Oakland Cemetery in the 2010 season

Atlanta Trolley Tours

It is hard to believe that Autumn is here and that the winter season is almost on us.

We here at Atlanta Trolley Tour Line have been hard at work getting ready for the season.
In this newsletter you will see the different offerings will be having over the winter season in Atlanta for 2009 - 2010.

At the time of this newsletter there are only 10 days left to take the final tours of the Haunted History Tour in 2009. If this is something you would really like to do, make your reservations now as the week before Halloween is always the busiest. This tour will return in the Spring of 2010.

September and October were very busy months for us in both tours and for private bookings. We worked with 22 different weddings and private events over the last couple of months.

Look for Atlanta Trolley Tours in up coming parades. You will find us in following parades this fall: The Atlanta Pride Parade, Atlanta Veterans Day Parade and the Children's Health Care of Atlanta Parade. Please wave and scream when you see us driving by.

We are now in the process of revamping our main company website for the 2010 season. We will also be adding a new stop on our route. We will be adding the Carter Presidential Center to our tour route.
