Booking a Team Building Tour

What do I need to do to book a tour for my team?

First, add your information in the form above.

Second, we’ll contact you to get more information about your event.

Third, we will send over a proposal with pricing.

Take your time to review it — our sales team is here to answer any questions you might have.

Are the tours best for small or large groups?

Our team building events are perfect for small teams and large teams.

Often, we host groups of 10 people. But, we also have hosted up to 750 people.

Our team is mostly remote. Do you have any virtual options?

Yes! Unexpected Virtual Tours offers creative virtual team building and DEI training for remote and hybrid teams.

For example, UVT offers a fun virtual Atlanta experience. During that virtual Atlanta experience, your team will “sightsee” through the city. Plus, we will ship your team optional Treat Boxes.

Why is a tour a good choice for Atlanta team building?

Of course, you can do murder mystery dinners and scavenger hunts. And, you can certainly do axe throwing in any city.

But, you can’t do an Atlanta tour anywhere else. If your team wants a truly local team building experience, a tour is the best option.

Basically, your team will experience the city’s most interesting neighborhoods. During the tours, you will learn about the history behind the city and try incredible local food.

Most importantly, we create a true Atlanta experience for your team building events.

About the Tours

How long are the tours?

Generally, our standard experiences are roughly 2 to 3 hours long. However, we can customize a shorter or longer experience for your team.

How close are the tours to other major attractions?

Unexpected Atlanta tours are close to many top Atlanta attractions. For instance, the following activities are within a short drive to our tours:

  • Georgia Aquarium, about 1 mile to Downtown Southern Food Walk
  • Skyline Park at Ponce City Market, about 1 mile from Grant Park Food Walk

What type of team building activity is involved?

Forget structured and boring reflections. Rather, we encourage natural conversation.

First, we engage with a basic icebreaker. Throughout, we will spur conversation between the guests.

For our Curb Market tour, we include a mini biscuit-making class. On our Street Art tour, your team actually spray paints artwork together.

Is a tour just a boring lecture?

NO! To the contrary, our tours are super engaging and will get your team energized. You will actively participate in our city and learn so much about it.

Are the tours a lot of walking?

All of the tours are a comfortable 1 to 2 mile walk with limited hills.  Usually, a person of average fitness can enjoy this team building experience. We can adjust to the pace of the group and this is not a power walk.

About the Food Tours

Can I add more cocktails to the food walks for my team?

Of course, we can add more cocktails.

Can I remove cocktails from the food tour?

Yes, we can customize your drink options.

What are the advantages of culinary team building?

There are so many advantages to culinary team building:

First, people love to eat and taste!

Second, many teams aren’t thrilled to cook together. But, tasting foods together is fun and energizing.

Third, getting into the city and exploring places guests don’t know gets everyone involved.

In short, it’s building community with food!

Why should we pay for a food tour? After all, couldn't we just go to a restaurant?

On our Atlanta team building events, first, we have two to three seated locations. Second, they’ll chat while walking between restaurants. Third, we build in a team building exercise to keep everyone connecting.

On the other hand, at a restaurant, your guests will only talk to one or two people. Often, at ordinary dinners, people feel like they didn’t get a chance to talk with each other.

That never happens on our food tours.

How do I know that the food will be good?

We work with some of the city’s best food suppliers who stand behind their food and drink. For example, Six Feet Under was featured on the Food Network. Additionally, all of our restaurants stand behind their food and many have been featured in national media.

In addition, we have multiple chefs and cookbook writers on our team.

We have a tight budget. Can you work with us?

Please e-mail us above. Often, we can work with companies to achieve a tour within their price range. Usually, we will reduce the amount of food, if possible.

What type of food and drink is included?

Here is a sample menu (subject to change) on our Grant Park tour:

  • Six Feet Under: shrimp and grits; fried catfish and okra
  • Firepit: Steak pizza; pork belly toast; Pony Punch
  • Little Tart: whole wheat chocolate chip cookie; apple cheddar turnover

Vegetarians may receive:

  • Six Feet Under: asparagus and grits; fried okra; fresh corn salad
  • Firepit: fried brussels sprouts; parmesan bites
  • Little Tart: whole wheat chocolate chip cookie; apple cheddar turnover
