Excellent and informative tour. Omar was great. Best thing we did in Atlanta. Made me realize how little I know about African American history. Even events I lived through. Saw parts of Atlanta I would never have seen on my own. I would highly recommend.

They story of how Tyler Perry bought so much property and how many jobs he is providing for the community. Being able to see the birth home of Dr. King and the to see the home lived in till he died was a numbing feeling. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and relatable. Had very good visual aides to help you see and understand what he was talking about. Even was able to give recommendations for places to eat an visit while in the city

Fantastic and customized tour. We learned a great deal about Atlanta's Black history and power of the civil rights past and ongoing movements. We appreciated the interactive (movie/screen presentation along with speaker) and engaging nature of the tour.
