Frequently asked questions

I bought a ticket, where do I show up to get on the tour?

Right at Hankcock park in downtown Dahlonega. Hancock park is over by the Chestatee diving bell, which is well marked from downtown. Once at the park, look for the big gold van around your tour time! There is plenty of free public parking around Hancock park, just plan on getting there 10-15 min early to find a space. The Address is 53 Hawkins St. Dahlonega, GA or you can follow this link:

No outside food is allowed on our short tour! You can bring a personal drink, as long as it has a lid or sealable top. We can not allow any alcoholic beverages of any kind.

Am I going to get motion sickness?

We hope not! The roads are windy, and some times, you might think the windy will never end, but it will! Overall, our drivers aim to drive as cautious as they can as to not rock the van! If needed, you may want to take your own motion sickness medication before the tour. Monster Van will provide sickness bags just in case!

What time does the tour depart?

Doors close and we roll at your scheduled tour time, so a 2pm tour starts right at 2pm. Plan accordingly, and give yourself 10-15 minutes to park, finalize your waiver if needed, and find your way over to the van.

No. There are no stops. Per the national forest service, our tour can not exit the vehicle and enter the trail system on foot. This also means no bathroom breaks, so plan accordingly.

No, only service animals are allowed on the van.
