    We are planning a trip for my daughter’s birthday on or around October 12, 2014 to the Senoia area. Will there still be filing going on during that time? Thanks in advance for your reply.

  2. sundy says:

    Are they still filming season 5, if so does anyone know where? Headed to the area tomorrow.

  3. Jessica says:

    Hi, I was wondering if any of the tours takes you to Terminus and the other places that were filmed in season 4. :)

  4. Alicia says:

    We are planning on coming down tomorrow for a visit and was wondering if there are any free tours. Also, how hard is it to just tour the locations yourself and what are the chances of seeing any of the actors? Thank you for any information you can give me.

  5. Jessica says:

    Hi! I was wondering if any of the tours show you the inside of the prison:)

    • Dani says:

      No, the prison was a set on the studio lot which is private property however, the Woodbury Shoppe in Senoia has a few pieces of the prison in their museum. Well worth a visit!

  6. Linette says:

    Will be visiting Atlanta this weekend, 6/20 – 6/23. Will only have all day Sunday and Monday morning available to take a tour. Which walking tour would you recommend for seeing locations from the most recent (last 2 years) locations? Will definitely be also visiting the Woodbury Shoppe.

  7. taylor says:

    Hello my family and I are coming to Georgia in july at will be in haralson on thw 19th and we want to take the tour. Can we buy our tickets in advance or when we get there

    • If for Atlanta Movie Tours for the Big Zombie Tour Part 2, which goes to Senoia, Newnan, Sharpsburg and Haralson, yes, you can see availability and book online here: http://atlantamovietours.com. If for the Walkin’ Dead Haralson Tour, you can see info above and I believe you can buy onsite since it’s a walking tour, though they do fill up.

  8. elizabethdermody says:

    Please help me :( ive been wanting to go to these from day one. Thing is im in Sudbury Ontario. I know they have them in Toronto. Can anyone tell me how i can get tickets from down there? Here,in Sudbury its hard to find things like this because theres NO information anywhere about any of this. If you could add me on google+ to let me know where i can these tickets &where they hold these things it would help out alot. Ive never got to go to anything like this. Even growing up i never got to go anywhere because we never had money too. You would make my day if you told me….hopefully someone will hear my crys…. :-P

  10. Carly says:

    Hi there! I want to book zombie tours this morning for Sun May 25th … being Memorial Day weekend I am sure there’s limited availability. Is there time to get from Tour 1 to Tour 2 in a single day? Or do you recommend doing them on different days? HELP!!!

    • Dani says:

      As of today it says May 25th isn’t sold out but I wouldn’t wait. Yes, you can do both tours in one day! Tour #1 is from 9:30-12:30 and tour #2 starts from Senoia at 2:30. Plenty of time. I am going tomorrow :)

  11. C. Taylor says:

    is there a schedule to watch the taping of TWD?

  12. Carrie Burns says:

    You can check out the calendar here – http://www.zerve.com/ATLMovies/calendar We expand during the Summer and hope to be running more weekday tours year-round.

  13. gardengoo63 says:

    Hello, planning a trip to visit Atlanta in June, is there a calendar available to see if tours are sold out? I don’t want to show up and not be able to take the tour. Big Zombie tour 1 & 2. Thanks
    Teresa

  14. Joana L. says:

    My family and I are planning on going to the filming area in Mid May. Now I know there is a tour in Grantville, the Senoia Walking tour and the Haralson tour. I would really like to know what exact locations each of these tours cover in comparison to the Big Zombie Tour part 2? We will only have time to do the 3 separate ones or the 1 big one. What would be better. DO they all pretty much cover the same areas? Any info would be appreciated. Thank you

    • Carrie Burns says:

      Hi Joana, I can’t speak to the other tours, we have location contracts in place with a number of spots and while not exclusive, we ensure that we never go to a property that the owner hasn’t signed off on. Locations still under contract with AMC are big no-no’s, we like to keep in their good graces :).

  15. Trista says:

    I meant the Zombit tour. Thanks you for checking into that. We just made the decision to do the 13th. I appreciate your response.

  16. Trista says:

    Any chance the weekday tours will be available the week of April 14th?

    • Carrie Burns says:

      Not sure if you mean Atlanta Movie Tours Big Zombie Tour or one of the others. I know that most of the others above can be done during the week I believe, but I don’t have the exact times so I would check their websites. For the Big Zombie Tours, if Friday, April 18th works we could look at adding that on, I believe Friday tours were starting in May, but we can pop it out there.

  17. Carrie Burns says:

    Atlanta Movie Tours update Dani: Scheduling change is in place starting in April, 9:30-12:30 in Atlanta for Part 1 and 2:30-5:30 in Senoia for Part 2, both Saturday & Sunday with weekday tours coming soon for the Summer. S4 is talked about a bit on Part 2 and as soon as the season ends we will look at revamping routes. Tours start in Castleberry Hill in Downtown Atlanta for Part 1 and Woodbury Shoppe for Part 2.

  18. Taylor says:

    I was wondering if someone could help me. My Frieda and I are heading to Georgia this July. And we want to visit the walking dead location the thing is the tour are only offered on Saturday and Sunday and we need to leave on Sunday to get back home by Monday. My question is what one would be better to. The walking dead senioa tour for $65 or the wLking dead harlson Ga one. Which one would you recommend doing.

    • Fred Scheit says:

      Personally, I would recommend the Haralson tour – last year the tour was taken by Jamie Thompson (her family own a lot of the buildings in Haralson), and you get to go inside those buildings, accompanied by some interesting commentary from Jamie.

      Not been on TWD Senoia tour – it wasn’t running when I visited – but with some research done before visiting, you can see the same things yourself.

      • Carrie Burns says:

        It’s really about how and what you want to see. I fully agree that there are some folks that prefer the self-guided route and we can certainly appreciate that…it’s how we got started ;). With all the great tours, like Grantville, Woodbury, Haralson, etc. you can see a lot! For those who want something a little more of an elevated experience we have the Big Zombie Tours and are more than happy to do the work for you :). Either way, visiting GA and the sites is a blast for any fan and GA loves having you!

        • taylor says:

          We really wanted to do both but we cant since om starys at 2 and the other at 2:30

          • Carrie Burns says:

            When and which ones Taylor? Starting in April, the part 1 in Atlanta will be 9:30-12:30 (and will likely include some new spots once S4 wraps, we just need to wait) and then the Senoia part 2 tour is 2:30-5:30. We wanted to allow folks to do both in one day.

    • Joseph says:

      My wife and I did the Grantville tour. It was awesome, Mayor Jim gives a wonderful guided tour of the “Clear” episode. They have actually remade the apartment that Morgan was held up in to look exactly as it did during the episode. Highly recommend this tour.

    • Kasey says:

      Thanks to this website my husband and I toured this area ourselves and paid the tour fees for the local areas. Total blast and easy to find! We drove from ohio, it was nice to take our time and not have to worry about a tours time schedule. Use this site and do it yourself….so much fun!!

      • Tracie says:

        So you didn’t make any reservations or call ahead, you just showed up? That is what we would like to do. Was it expensive? Easy to get into or sold out? Sorry for all the questions!

  19. Brooke says:

    Hey everyone! I am looking to possible do a tour later on this year. I want to see..well, everything!!! lol…The prison, the train tracks, the town…as much as possible. Which tour is best and are there things that I can do on my own without a tour? Also, age appropriate for 6 and 5 year old who actually DO love the show and watch it too??

    • Dani says:

      There are amazing tours to take! Check out our Tour page. Unfortunately, the prison is a set on Ralaigh studios private property and is not accessible to the public (same with Hershel’s farm, also private property). Train tracks used were in Senoia, a great town to walk around for free and you will not want to miss The Woodbury Shoppe also located in Senoia. There are many locations you can visit just by using our map. I can only speak for the Grantville tour that it is very child friendly, Mayor Jim is fantastic!
      Hope that helps, let us know if we can find more info for you!

    • Divakind says:

      I just got back from Atlanta & a small group of us visited Senoia as part of the convention I was attending. The prison set on the backlot of Raleigh Studios has been completely demolished, so there really is “nothing to see” there *LOL* During a convention panel on TWD, a crew member told us that they really take that no trespassing thing seriously–the studio doesn’t hesitate to call law enforcement if you don’t have good reason to be on their property. Unfortunately, we were running behind schedule & didn’t have time to drive by the pudding house (as our guide called it).

      Even though a lot of the trappings of Woodbury are gone, you should definitely visit Senoia! It’s a lovely small Southern town & all the people we met were really friendly, especially at the Woodbury Shoppe. Which, BTW, is having their grand re-opening on 3/29/14! The actress who played “Bicycle Girl” in season 1 will be on hand, along with a number of Walkers from various episodes. Daryl’s motorcycle will be added to their display downstairs & they’ll also be giving away a replica of Michonne’s katana. (Those are also for sale in the Shoppe as well. Pricey, but a beautiful piece of memorabilia for the serious Walking Dead fan in your life.)

      Dani, I saw some railroad tracks near the coffee shop as we were leaving–have those been used in any of the season 4 episodes?

      Can’t wait to go back & visit again!

      • Dani says:

        Thank you for sharing that information, especially the about the studio.
        Agree, if you are in the area, it is a really nice town to dine and shop. Of course I plan on going to the re-launch of the Woodbury Shoppe, wouldn’t miss it.
        The railroad tracks near the coffee shop have a small bridge about a block away that was used in Season 4 filming, and it was also in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes Glad you enjoyed your trip.

  20. jan says:

    hello, my friends and I are planning a trip to atlanta at the end of june, and Ive heard that they usually film around May. I was wondering if it’s possible to visit the sets when they are filming? (if anyone has done this) and if you get to meet the cast as well..thank you

    • Dani says:

      They do usually start filming in May, when we don’t know! *(edit to add: looks like they will start in April :)
      The sets are closed, and as you can imagine security is very tight. The best time to meet a cast member is if they come over to you. For example, we were in Senoia when they were filming and they VERY GENEROUSLY came over to sign and take photos for a few minutes. It is a waiting game. What was sad was when people were disrespectful and ruined it for everyone. If they are not filming there is still plenty to see!

  21. kacie says:

    Is there a tour where you can see Hershel’s farm? Also are y’all open weekend and week days?

    • Dani says:

      No tour of Hershel’s farm, it is private property. Which tour were you planning on? Most tours are on the weekend, I would call ahead to confirm dates and times! Hope that helps

    • Unfortunately not. The farmhouse is a private residence and they do not allow visitors. It’s not even visible from any public roads.

    • Carrie Burns says:

      If you’re asking about Atlanta Movie Tours Kacie, we currently tour on the weekends, but will have Summer tours during the week. We don’t go to private homes out of respect for the home owners.

  22. josh says:

    My family and I are WD fans big time! I have been to Senoia several times and are planning to go back next weekend… looking at Google Earth there is a train track that goes right behind the prison… Is it legal to walk this train track?

    • Dani says:

      I would assume it is illegal as the tracks are probably considered private property. They are done using the prison set anyway, wouldn’t be very much to see except a studio lot I bet.

  23. Carrie Burns says:

    Yes you do Dani! Tell us when, just email us! Jess, don’t forget to use TWDL promo code when booking!

  24. Carrie Burns says:

    They are all great and the Grantville and Haralson tours really add-on to the Big Zombie Tour since they are like expanded tours of the area. We are working on a scheduling change for the Spring so you can come in and do the 2 tours in 1 day, hopefully as soon as March. All tours are now $65 as we wanted to be able to offer location fees and keep things consistent.

  25. jess says:

    looking to surprise my husband with a tour….which is the best? i dont mind spending $$

    • Hello Jess. I haven’t been on any except the Atlanta Movie Tours but I like them simply because they’re accompanied by folks who were zombie extras on the show. That gives them a connection that’s difficult to match from anyone else. Granted I may be biased since I’ve been on their tour, but I’d highly recommend them. For what it’s worth, even though I’ve never been on any of the other tours, I’ve heard nothing but great things about them. The biggest advantage Atlanta Movie Tours has over the others is the fact they travel to many different locations versus being centralized in one area; whether it be Haralson or Grantville. Really I don’t think you’ll go wrong whichever you choose.
