There were two historians and an elementary school principal in our group so we were really impressed with the historical accuracy and the way the history was told. This was particularly true for the parts of the history that are more difficult to tell, especially more contemporary issues.

Malika did a wonderful job sharing all the knowledge she had on the neighbourhood, while adding anecdotes from her personal connections/findings. It was very informative and thought provoking. Will recommend to others!

I would have liked our tour guide to take us to Congo Square and explain and discuss the 2 statues.
