Our guide was awesome! We had a great time! I will advise everyone visiting ATL to purchase this tour. I have visited ATL several times but this was the 1st time that I went on a tour. I learn so much about the history of ATL and was able to get an idea of what’s to come in the future. I will definitely do this tour again.

At the end of the tour he played the happy birthday song.He took great care of my uncle who is disabled.These extra special touches really meant a lot.Best way to see a lot of Black History in Atlanta minus all the heat and walking!Jeff pointed out a lot of things throughout the city as well.He even had bottles of water and snacks for us! Hands down the best part of our vacation. We will most definitely book another tour when we go back!

Jeff was an awesome tour guide. We learned a lot, had fun and laughed a lot 👏🏼👏🏼. Highlights MLK birthplace, childhood home, last home. Ebenezer Baptist church (new and old). And of course the MLK center & museum - awesome. Saw all 5 HBUs. And lots of cool cultural tidbits. Also took a detour to a Malcolm X festival.
