This was a comprehensive tour that covered the critical events and players in the civil rights movement. You also learn how Atlanta has grown based on this foundation. I was happy that the tour also covered a number of other places I was hoping to see and experience, like the beltline. The growing heart of a modern Atlanta. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and provided stories to bring the old and new Atlanta to life. Looking forward to coming back!
