  • 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.

  • Dan is an excellent tour guide. He has a passion for his city and excellent knowledge of the Civil War and Civil Rights Movement.
    A fun afternoon full of facts, little asides and humour. I would recommend anyone to book him.

  • 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!
