Celebrity couple Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis stopped through Chattanooga Monday to play tourists at one of the city's most famous attractions. 

Kunis and Kutcher took a guided tour of Ruby Falls on a "road trip," according to Micah Jones, the tour guide who led them through the attraction.

Kutcher also tweeted from Rock City's Fairyland Caverns while in town, touting the work of Rock City art specialist Matthew Dutton. 

The couple was last seen together in St. Petersburg, Fla., Saturday at Kunis’ brother’s wedding.

Several sources are reporting the couple is engaged.

Both actors starred on the long-running sitcom "That '70s Show" from 1998 to 2006. Kutcher currently stars on the sitcom "Two and a Half Men." Kunis has several movies completed or in postproduction. 

Their tour of Ruby Falls consisted of the couple and another family of four.

Jones said they were friendly and asked questions.

"I came to work right at 4 p.m.," he said. "I was told right away that Mila and Ashton were going to be on my tour."

Jones, an employee of Ruby Falls for three years, said he remained calm throughout the tour and didn’t let the couple’s superstar status keep him from his job as a guide.

"They were just normal people, and I’ll treat them like normal," he said. "Both of them were interested and had questions. They said they were on a road trip, and I didn’t ask them anything."

According to Jones, Kutcher was particularly interested in making puns about the rock formations.

"They were just really laidback and pretty cool," he said. "And Ashton made some pretty good rock puns, several of them. A big part of my tour is puns."

Although Jones could not remember a specific pun when asked, he did retain a souvenir from the tour: As the couple was leaving, he asked them each to sign his arm tattoo. 

The rest of the Ruby Falls staff was understandably starstruck.

"I mean, it's pretty rare that somebody comes through like that," he said. "I don't know of any other examples. In the three years I've worked here, I haven't seen any celebrities."

When asked to recall his favorite movies from both Kunis and Kutcher, Jones was quick to list his favorite Kunis flick: "Forgetting Sarah Marshall."

"I mean, I think Mila is really funny," he said. "I can't think of any Ashton movies, though."
