Of the two of us, one participant wanted to explore more of the venues we visited. I was happy with the depth of the subject matter covered. I would have liked to see the location of the Avery and the Slave Mart. Also your thoughts on the Slave Mart. Franklin Williams is certainly knowledgeable and I did learn quite a bit.

The service deserves an Outstanding rating. The Tour guide was very knowledgeable, the bus was cool, and we loved the one on one questions that were answered quickly and responsibly. Excellent service which we will recommend to many of our friends.
