Movie buff alert: Know all about Atlanta movie tours

Movie clapper

Movie buffs and TV binge watchers have probably noticed the “Made in Georgia” tag in some of their favorite films and shows. The state has been named the “Hollywood of the South,” thanks to a number productions shooting in the area.

Atlanta Movie Tours was created because of the many small and big screen hits filmed in Georgia. It gives visitors and locals the opportunity to see the city in a different way. Their tours have something that everyone from classic movie fans to superhero geeks will enjoy.

Check out some of their most popular tours:

Big Zombie tours

The Walking Dead fans will definitely enjoy Atlanta Movie’s Big Zombie bus tours and walking tour. Since so much of the show is filmed in Atlanta and Senoia, GA, the bus tour is divided into three different parts.

The Big Zombie Bus Tour Part 1 visits Atlanta locations from Seasons 1 to 5 which includes the hospital at the beginning of the series, the Goat Farm, the Jackson Street Bridge, and the location where they filmed the tank scene. There will also be Season 9 locations added soon.

Part 2 is in Senoia, also known as “Woodbury” and now, “Alexandria” to fans – an hour away from Atlanta. This tour lets fans explore locations from Seasons 2 to 5. It features the Zombie Arena, Morgan’s apartment, Hershel’s bar, and where (spoiler alert!) Merle’s death scene was shot.

Big Zombie Tour 3 features new locations from Seasons 6 to 9, as well as some from Seasons 2 and 3. Notable locations are Glenn and Nicholas’ dumpster, Rick’s Bridge, and (another spoiler alert!) where Denise died. The tour is led by a behind-the-scenes expert who has worked with the cast and crew of The Walking Dead. This person can provide actual insights and tidbits about your favorite show.
