Victoria was a fantastic guide who is clearly passionate about Atlanta past and present. We really enjoyed the tour and also thought it was the perfect length (~90 min).

Victoria was our guide for the Sweet Auburn walking tour. She was not only friendly and knowledgeable, she clearly loves what she's doing and is passionate about preserving the history of Atlanta, and particularly Auburn Street. I appreciate that she knows what happened there a long time ago and knows what's happening there today. Love the story about Big Mouth Ben! Thanks, Victoria!

Our tour guide was fabulous and so knowledgeable, armed with old photos as well as so much information. I am a native and I still learned so much about this area that I didn't know. I recommend it to any native, visitor or newly transferred person to learn about Atlanta's interesting and diverse history.
