The guide was knowledgeable and very accommodating. The vehicle was comfortable. We visited quite a few very interesting places and he always had interesting information to provide. He made it feel like we were just talking with a friend about the various places that we visited around Atlanta.

A great way to learn

This tour far exceeded our expectations. My husband and I were in Atlanta for a conference, and had a few hours to see Atlanta. We were picked up and dropped off at our hotel and Melinda, the tour guide was extremely well informed, pleasant, interesting, and concerned about our well-being and interests. The tour was at a pace that was right for us—we are in our 70s—But I understand they have tours for children. It was a great combination of walking through historic site, like the historical cemetery, and riding in a comfortable man. With just the two of us along everything was tailored to our. needs. I think I now understand the importance of Atlanta in the Civil War and Reconstruction and how Atlanta’s history lead to its crucial role in the civil rights struggle and the development of Martin Luther King. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a wonderful tour. I was able to see a lot more of Atlanta than I otherwise would have. I was picked up by Melinda and we started out stopping at a Civil War battle sight and ending up at the MLK museum. All along the way Melinda proved an interesting narrative of the different sights. I highly recommend this tour for anyone the least bit interested in history.

I really enjoyed the knowledge he shared and that it was both Civil War and Civil Rights. We also got to drive around to see other prominent places such as Olympic Park and the Coca Cola factory. He worked around my schedule and that was greatly appreciated!
