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.
The tour brought me to several memorable places. Each place has interesting stories which are not available when we visit by ourselves. It made me understand not only Pastor King's story but also the stories of residents in the district. The tour guide was great. Her talk enables us to have interests in the history and civil rights.
I love the tours you offer as they are a great way to get out and enjoy a walk while learning something new.
Our guide was knowledgeable, pleasant, and a joy to be around. She made certain we were enjoying our tour. She went "the extra mile" for us.
