More than just history! This tour is comprehensive and brings the city and its local heroes to life…such a pleasure!
Nov 2021 • Family
Wow! Where do I begin? This tour exceeded my expectations for our group of young local teens. Emily was was engaging, funny, and brought to life the excitement and struggles of living in Sweet Auburn. She highlighted our local heroes, the rich and beautiful civil rights legacy of Atlanta, with unique touches like the Madame CJ Walker Museum. This tour is way more than the usual facts about Dr. King’s life. Prepare to be amazed!

Definitely a must-do!
Leigh is a fabulous tour guide (and I bet a much loved professor at Oxford college). She conveys so much information with a story-telling style. I learned so much about the civil rights movement spanning decades and almost none of it was what I already knew. Best way to spend a few hours!

A memorable experience
Oct 2021
This review is a month late.
We went on the Martin Luther King Jr. History Walking Tour on Oct. 08 and Emily was our tour guide. Emily was so knowledgeable and passionate about the topic that the entire tour was so enjoyable and memorable. This was our first visit to Atlanta and we came away from this tour with some knowledge of Atlanta's role in the the civil right movement. We also learned more about Dr King's personal background that influenced how he became who he was as a leader and a speaker.
If you're visiting Atlanta, we recommend this tour.

Emily out guide made everyone feel at ease. She was a great storyteller. Her background in theater was very apparent! History came alive as we walked along Auburn. We would not have had the same experience or learned all of the significance of many who worked for progression in civil rights. She also gave us tips for our visit to Atlanta. My 18 and 14 year olds enjoyed it- kept their attention & kept them involved!

Loved this moving and informative tour that gave me insight into the influences that inspired MLK and other leaders' devotion to civil rights. Wonderful context that pieces together bidirectional facts and names. Amazing how events and personalities came together to accomplish so much. Our guide Emily was so knowledgeable and a skilled tour guide. Very worthwhile!

Inspiring, educational Civil Rights tour
Oct 2021
We knew about Martin Luther King and Atlanta's role in the Civil Rights movement from history books, but it was moving and inspiring to be in the neighborhoods where it happened. Our tour guide, Leigh, was engaging, smart, and happy to answer our questions, and she shared stories that brought the era to life. A great way to learn about history.

Very pleased with our tour with Emily. She was full of interesting history and we were so glad that we didn't just try to self tour the neighborhood - we would have missed so much!
