I have traveled many times to Birmingham to complete my Master's Degree and graduate certificate in low vision rehab. I never had the opportunity to stay and really get to know the town. Because I had extra time, I decided to tour the city. I chose this tour because it fit my schedule. I travel to many cities and I believe this is the best tour I have ever been on. The tour guide was professional, enthusiastic, well versed and interesting. If you have never traveled to Birmingham and would like to enjoy a great day, this is the best tour ever. I am sure this tour guide has other tours that you may also enjoy. Thank you for the wonderful tour!
