Stop at the Downtown Macon Welcome Center for a self-guided tour map, or download it yourself from the welcome center's website (www.maconga.org). You can also arrange, through the welcome center, customized group tours with professional guides, or you can buy an "Around Town" combination ticket. The ticket gives you admission to several attractions.

It's advised that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to tour departure.
