Our guide, Emily from Unexpected Atlanta, did an excellent job with our tour on August 23. Knowledgeable, articulate and engaging, we could not have hoped for a better guide for this meaningful experience. My wife and I were traveling with three of our grandchildren, ages 16, 14 and 10. Emily made the tour as or more relevant for them than we might even have hoped for. All around, an outstanding experience! I strongly recommend Emily to others who will take this tour.

I knew seeing the Martin Luther King Jr Historical sites were high on my priority list. But being I am from AZ, I did not know the area. So my friend and I were delighted to find a tour. I did not have high expectations, but hoped they would at least know where to take us. Leigh was a spectacular tour guide! We saw so many historical sites away from the center! And her knowledge was above an beyond what we were expecting. So grateful for her guidance.

Although we didn't get to tour many of the historical buildings because of COVID restrictions we did see photos and some video. Mostly it was the ambience of the area and learning morning about the cvil rights movement and the leaders. Truly interesting.

This was an excellent tour. Thanks to our very knowledgeable tour guide, Emily! I learned a lot, and hope to repeat portions of the tour in the future, when federal buildings are open again.

Really enjoyed this tour. Emily was our guide and she was very knowledgeable.
