A Recent Review of this tour

Roger was excellent. He had a wealth of knowledge about Atlanta and the Civil Rights movement history. Given the limited time I (we) had in Atlanta, this was an excellent way to see the key sites. He was very accommodating and friendly. I would take another tour with him anytime. It was great. Thanks Roger!
