What people are saying about Georgia Aquarium, Atlanta

Overall rating

4.6
(2,270 reviews)

I was booked to take the 10am tour but was called an hour and a half before that to cancel because of an event taking place in Atlanta at that time. I agreed to take the 2pm tour but spent an hour and a half trying to find the meeting place. After 2 phone calls to try and find them they left without me and I was still charged the tour price. To say I’m upset is an understatement as I only had one full day in Atlanta. Their organisation should have just blocked the 10am time slot out. It’ wasn’t very professional

Seeing the largest aquarium in the world is a great experience. But it's so crowded that it's the only minus.

It was fantastically nice and well maintained. Nothing to change

Atlanta aquarium is awesome. The best I have ever seen.

Everything was great. Gift shop checkout took too long.
