A Recent Review of this tour

My family and I cannot say enough wonderful things about Roger. From the professional and timely pick up to his enormous wealth of knowledge about Atlanta and the Civil Rights Movement. If you are seeking to learn about Atlanta with someone who is a pleasure to be around, look no further! We travel a lot (domestic and international), and I must say this is by far the best tour. Thank you for sharing your home (ATL) with us! We will be back soon :)
