The tour guide was very nice and well informed about local black businesses and locations where films and shows were filmed, which helped make the tour feel more personal than we expected. The tour is mostly done on a bus which is convenient if you have issues walking long distance and it allows you to see a lot more of the city in the time allotted, but we expected to walk a little more to see things personally. I would recommend advertising that this is more driving than walking so guests get a better understanding of what to expect. Also it was great that all guests joined PhotoCircle as it allowed us to download other peoples photos when they saw things we couldn’t.

This tour was recommended to me from a family friend and I am so glad that I booked it, as my family and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Jeff our tour ambassador was very knowledgeable of the Black and civil rights history that took place in Atlanta, as well as information on recent and currents events impacting Atlanta and the state of Georgia today. As Jeff took us into the various neighborhoods that we would otherwise not visit on our own, he was very "down to earth" in the information that he shared. My family and I were part of a very nice group which including Jeff came to a total of 10, a nice size. The vehicle was a good size and very comfortable and the snack and water that Jeff offered us was unexpected and appreciated. There were also a couple of bathroom stops which was greatly welcomed. While the entire tour was enjoyable our favorite part was being able to step out of the vehicle to take a closer look at different places visited such as the Dr. Martin Luther King and Coretta Scott King Memorial.

I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in learning about Black history and the impact of civil rights on Atlanta and the state of Georgia. Thank you Jeff!

This was the best tour ever. Our tour guide Omar was awesome. He has a wealth of knowledge about the black history of Atlanta. He took us to the West End, where all the black movers and shakers spent their time - Martin Luther King, Ralph Abernathy, Joseph Lowery. Omar also drove by Tyler Perry’s studios, other homes and businesses owned by blacks, and the murals we saw were all wonderful. He provided water and snacks. We went to a black owned restaurant. I had the spinach patty and it was delicious. Thanks Omar we really appreciated the tour.

What a fantastic tour! If you do any tour in Atlanta, it should be this one! We were guided by our ambassador, Jeff, who showed us so many important civil rights landmarks. He had great knowledge of civil rights, both historically and currently here in Atlanta. He has such a wonderful energy and kept us all very engaged and entertained , so that the four hours went by quickly. We saw important houses where history was made, ( much around the incredible Martin Luther King, Jr.) we saw new developments and old neighborhoods, with Jeff giving us great insight into the history and changes of the neighborhoods. We saw really wonderful murals and monuments, some places where movie scenes were filmed, cool cafes and just generally lots of interesting things. We stopped at a neat area for refreshments, and he also gave us all a bottle of water and chips halfway through the tour. By the end of the tour, the whole bus group of strangers didn’t feel like strangers anymore, after having such an amazing experience. My teenage son and I highly recommend this tour! Thanks, Jeff!

This tour was top notch. Jeff, our tour guide, grew up in the area and is passionate about its stellar civil rights history. He took our small group of adults on a tour that was thorough, thoughtful, entertaining and intimate. We made numerous stops at important sites, places to eat, local small businesses, and we were treated to insights of both historic and contemporary, ever-changing Atlanta. Jeff was courteous, kind and patient and we would do it all over again. We highly recommend this tour and specifically Jeff!

This trip is EXACTLY what I wanted. A really great tour of Atlanta that really focused on the historical parts of the city and its contribution to the civil rights movement. Yes, we saw things like the Mercedes Benz stadium and the Coca Cola tour, but more importantly, we visited the neighborhoods where the activism really began. Omar is a wealth of information on past and current important African Americans, and he happily shared that knowledge. The information in his brain is just incredible. He was able to impart history and tie important moments in the civil rights movement to where we were standing on a street and looking at a building. He's also super friendly and we enjoyed spending time with him and he was completely okay with the many questions we had. Also, my mom has trouble with her foot so has a hard time walking sometimes and Omar made sure we did the amount of walking for us. We also got a taste of a local eatery and some wonderful local food. I highly recommend this tour. It's so great that I'm going to study some of the things I learned and then plan on retaking the tour again at some point. Don't worry about the weather. It's a great vehicle and if the weather is bad, you can choose to get out or not do walk around. Free water and chips was a nice touch.

This tour surpassed all our expectations. Our tour guide, Jeff, was among the most knowledgeable and fun tour guides we've had. He was able to engage every single one of the tour participants, which ranged in age from kids to older adults. Not only did he know of the official history of Black Atlanta and Civil Rights, but also of lesser known, informal aspects of African American life and culture in the city. Highly recommended!

This was an excellent tour. Jeff was fantastic- knowledgeable, warm, friendly and humorous. After spending 4 hours with him we felt that we understood so much more about the city's rich history. Jeff's knowledge is expansive and it was a real treat to hear him expound on historical and cultural landmarks. We learned not only about the obvious spots, like MLK's house, but also about the histories of various neighborhoods, the stories behind the many murals in the city, the city's place in the black movie and music industries and the important role it has played as a center of black education. It was a tremendous pleasure to spend 4 hours with him! Highly recommend!

The best part of the tour was Jeff, our tour operator. He wove a wonderful narrative of old Black Atlanta with the present/future of Black Atlanta (West End) populated with personalities and bits of "believe it or not" information. Jeff always tells the story leaving you wanting more. He has a great sense of humor too. Highly recommend tour!
