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.

This was the best tour we’ve been on. We travel quiet a bit and so these tours. Emily our tour guide was phenomenal. She really did a great job telling us about the history of MLK along with other African Americans in the community.

I enjoyed every part of the tour. Emily, our tour guide was very educated and energetic. She made the stories as if you can actually see the events happening.

It would have been excellent, if ML parents home was open for tours!
