Having lived now in Helen for several years now, and getting to know the people, culture, an the businesses of Helen gives a unique perspective on the best way I can help those who've never been to Helen or have missed some things in Helen with this guided tour of the town I can tell you about the knowledge that has been gained from living here and getting to know the people that way when you're here it's less of just a visit and more of a great opportunity to be part of the Alpine village family. I have been doing tours of different fields for quite a few years so able to help people navigate their way through the many shops and restaurants to find the very best, for your time and enjoyment. With this tour we can help give you the inside view of Helen and your time in the beautiful town will be filled with good time and fond memories.

Enjoyed the experience very much. I was able to find some shops that were not on the main strip that maybe I might not have found without the tour.

This experience was fun. John really knows his history and he took us to interesting places and shops with home grown merchandise we probably wouldn’t have stopped at otherwise. He found out what the group was interested in at geared our stops (and our dinner) to those places. During the spring most shops here close early (around 6-7:00). John is friends with the merchants and some kept their shops open after hours for us to come in and browse. We enjoyed our tour of Helen. Thanks John for a delightful evening.

John is an excellent guide. He is knowledgeable about the area and took us to the best shops. We are tempted to do it again tomorrow. I definitely recommend this adventure during the beginning of your visit to Helen so that you’ll know where the “locals’ go.

Such a fun tour with "the old guard" in Helen! Went by several shops and sampled some of the finery in town. John was a great guide and host!

I booked this experience as a bday gift for my friend. John showed up dressed as one of the Three Musketeers, sword and all! This took the experience to another level with just the costume alone! He was very welcoming and friendly. John also has extensive knowledge of the history of Helen. He took us to all of the best stores that had the best deals. We also enjoyed lunch together and it felt like we were chatting with a friend we haven’t seen in a while. He even threw in a bonus location tour since my friend and I were the only ones on the tour that day. I HIGHLY recommend this experience for newbies and those who have also been the Helen before. You will love it!
