Jake W. was perhaps the best part of our trip to Montgomery. We were fortunate enough to have a small group and Jake welcomed us as if we were his own family in from out of town. He was extremely prompt (1 hour early)and never seemed concerned about wrapping up the tour. Jake has a wealth of personal knowledge of the region and the movement. Jake also astonished us with his overall knowledge of history and how history impacts the future as well as how we live currently.
