This educational sightseeing tour travels throughout Atlanta, exploring the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King, Jr.'s life.

Begin the day at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change. The Center features more than 10,000 documents from Dr. King's personal collection and from the civil rights movement. Nearly a million people visit this National Historic Site each year to learn, be inspired, and pay their respects to Dr. King’s legacy.

Then, visit the Atlanta University Center, the largest contiguous consortium of African Americans in higher education in the United States, consisting of four historically black colleges and universities. This is where Dr. King attended university.

Also, visit Dr. King's favorite soul-food restaurant and one of Atlanta’s best-loved diners, the Busy Bee Cafe, for lunch; and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, consisting of several buildings, including Dr. King's boyhood home and the original Ebenezer Baptist Church, where he was baptized and where both he and his father were pastors. It is also his final resting place.

Informative, but brief
, May 2022
The guide was very knowledgeable. However Ebenezer Church was closed and that was disappointing. I think the tour could have been longer (include more sites) at the same cost.

Thank you so much for the review. Unfortunately the Ebenezer Baptist Church closed without any prior warning for repairs. We appreciate our guests taking the time to share their experiences - both positive and negative. In order to provide you with the most enjoyable tour. Thank you again.

Greetings Ms. Patricia, It clearly states in our tour description. Although access to the buildings in the National Historic Park, (the Visitor Center, Ebenezer Baptist Church and Dr. King’s birth home) are closed, we are conducting a walking tour of the area and its legendary history. So until your review says, we do tell people prior to booking. Additionally, we email people the same information once they book, to ensure they understand. It is important that clients clearly read tour descriptions prior to booking. Furthermore our tour guide does an excellent job with sharing the history of the area.
Bad trip waste of money

Visiting the tomb. Seeing the outside of church. There was nothing that I couldn't have done without a guide.

Greetings Ms. Latanya, Thank you for taking our tour of the Historical National Park. Unfortunately do to Covid restrictions many of the buildings are closed. Clients are told in the tour description prior to booking and again in a email once booked . For whatever reason Clients ignore and don't read, then they complain about buildings closed. You received the following email days prior that explained the restrictions, which would have given opportunity to cancel the tour. Ebenezer Baptist Church and Dr. King’s birth home) are closed, we are conducting a walking tour of the area and its legendary history. Please note masks are required for the tour. We are excited to share our Atlanta Civil Rights History. Please note Our MLK, Jr. Heritage tour has been adapted due to Covid restrictions. Tour is conducted by local historian Ms. Stephanie, who has lived and worked in Atlanta for thirty plus years, and worked for Three Mayors. Thank you again for taking our tour.

Greetings Kim, Thank you for your review of the Dr. Martin Luther King's Tour. I spoke to Stephanie and she said that it's always a pleasure to share little known information about a person or subject. She's so glad you enjoyed the tour!
Great tour
, Jun 2021
Even though things were shut down because of the covid19 the tour guide did a wonderful job! She called to make sure we were still going on the tour, she had her facts and information all together. She also had pictures to show because we couldn't go inside. And the best thing about it she took her time and made sure everyone understood and was together. She did a great job..

This was a poor tour in that the guide left us to tour the site and read about the history on our own. We didn't eat at Busy Bee's as advertised, as the guide said it's very busy on Saturdays and the wait time is too long. We were dropped off at another restaurant that we visited the previous day on our Southern Food Tour, however we should have gone to Busy Bee's as advertised. We didn't spend any time at the historic black colleges, as we just drove down the street and looked out the van windows. The guide was friendly however that's not enough considering the amount of money that's charged for this tour. This tour company should not be used as we believe Viator could find better for it's travelers.

, Jul 2016
The driver and guide were very polite and friendly. However, several detractions affect my overall review. Multiple attempts were required to successfully contact our tour conductor. The most important expectation was to receive more comprehensive information on a guided tour that would enhance and provide a framework and broader view of the self-guided portion of the tour. Park Rangers were available for the self-guided portion of the tour which included the interior of MLKs home and the Ebenezer Baptist Church. However, The Heritage Tour fell short of being a guided tour because it did not take advantage of the many opportunities that were available to enhance, frame or add historical connections and other insightful information about Atlantas rich history, the civil rights movement, and Martin Luther King Jrs life. Consequently, the tour had low value for the price paid since the admission is free to each of the national historical sites. Also, the tour omitted the Martin Luther King Jr Center, the Atlanta University Center and MLKs favorite soul food restaurant, the Busy Bee. Instead of the Busy Bee, we were given a 14 voucher to eat lunch at a newly built, modern Paschal restaurant that replaced the original. The food was good, but it had no historical significance other than the Paschal name. In conclusion, I was very disappointed in this tour because it added no value to a self-guided tour that I could have done on my own.
