A Recent Review of this tour

Best tour ever! Roger is a historian and a story teller. We are amazed at how much understanding of history we learned in two hours. From the Native American civilization before Europeans came, to the civil War, to present day he told us so much in a logical and interesting way. I've read a lot of history and was surprised how much I didn't know. It was exciting to be right where the events happened. Our granddaughter, who lives in Atlanta, plans to take this tour based on our experience.
