  • Omar was an awesome tour guide full of knowledge about the black history of Atlanta. He spoke on so much and some of the things I learned I didn’t know until the tour. I would recommend it and I would definitely go again pretty dope.

  • Omar was very knowledgeable and funny! There was so much to see on this tour. This was the highlight of my trip to Atlanta definitely worth it.

  • Omar was very knowledgeable and personable. Made the tour very fun and his personality helps, you don't even really realize the tour is about to end until it does and you think "Didn't we just start?" Overall phenomenal experience. if you are doing a tour in ATL this one is the one to take!

  • Omar's knowledge was impressive. I asked alot of questions and am sure it took him off of his planned presentation. He never skipped a beat and was able to weave the answers to my questions into the tour.

  • Every part of the tour has been excellent and interesting. Being able to walk to where historic events and people had been was truly unforgettable. Though the weather was nonstop rainy it didn't stop us from seeing these places.

  • 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!

  • Omar was a really great tour guide. He made us feel really comfortable, I also learned quiet a lot from this tour.

  • very informative and great places were visited guided was very friendly and knowledgeable
    overall it is a great tour

  • They made the civil rights history come alive and Very interesting. We are much more knowledgeable about Atlanta now. They are very personable and fun, and they knew where to take us. Great experience!.
