Very interesting and strong experience. I was there with my 85 year old father, and the route was suitable for both of us. We were lucky to have Jennifer as our guide. She led us through the walk with knowledge, warmth and humor, combining professionalism with passion. Make sure have her as your guide too, and you will be sure to get an experience to remember.

The tour was excellent and the tour guide we had was exceptional he was very thorough and helpful, friendly and kind (i’m sorry dude i forgot your name, I have a picture ) keep up the great work, you make the tour spectacular

Jeff was awesome! He showed us a lot of interesting places. Sometimes it was hard taking pictures due to the nature of the tour being at night and mostly moving in the vehicle.

Joe has been a great guide! The tour was interesting, a great opportunity to know more about the civil right and Atlanta history.

Very educational and informative. Arielle is extremely pleasant, engaging and knowledgeable!
