We were extremely happy with the tour and our tour guide Omar who exceeded our expectations. Omar is full of knowledge from the passed to the present. He is polite, patient, courteous, accommodating, knowledgeable and very relatable.

We were taken to multiple siteS but unfortunately Covid doesn’t allow full access to places.

Will do it again and will definitely refer friends.

This was a very good way to spend the day seeing some parts of Atlanta. The guy who runs this gives a new side of the civil rights story that's not often covered in school. Had plenty of time to explore stops and the bus is very well air conditioned!
