Had a fabulous Civil Rights tour today with Jake Williams. He does a wonderful job of weaving his personal experiences into the broader history of the civil rights movement, with a level of detail that I have not experienced in similar tours. This was by far the best historical tour I've ever had. Highly recommended.

Jake was amazing for our large group as we started in Selma, walked the Edmund Pettus Bridge, and ended up in Montgomery!! He went the extra mile to even give us certificates and much more! He was full of amazing historical stories and we will definitely use him again!!!

Jake was an amazing tour guide. He is a true local with great insights and stories. We spent the entire day with him and saw Montgomery (and Selma) thru the eyes of someone who literally lived the history he shared with us. Jake is a gem!

This tour was easily one of the best experiences we have had as a family. Jake showed all the sites associated with the Civil Rights movement. He took us off the beaten path! He shared his personal experiences! We feel very fortunate to hear first-hand Jake's experiences.

Jake Williams provided the best tour that I have been on. He not only knows his city and its history, he has lived some of that history. His descriptions and explanations were clear, and his tour route was efficient and user friendly. It was time well spent. It was worth more than 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jim, It's was my pleasure.

Donna DollingsUnited States
Our group's Montgomery Civil Rights tour was the highlight of our travel down to Alabama. Jake was our wonderful guide, who gave us a great overview of Montgomery's history and its importance in the civil rights movement. His first-hand account of the Selma March and description of Montgomery during that time made the situation more real and personal to us. He did a great job of pointing out various sites of interest, too. Anyone who wants to know more about history should take this tour--with Jake!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank Donna, its was a joy to host you and your group.

Jake is more than a tour guide, he's a local who has a keen interest in the history of his town. He was generous with his time, particularly as the day of our tour Museum opening times were changed due to a tornado warning. He seems to know everyone personally and was able to get everything rearranged so we missed nothing. I felt extremely safe, he looking after my teenage daughter & myself like a concerned uncle. Jake know everything about Civil Rights and even introduced us to some of the key players!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank Kate, its was a pleasure to has been your guide , if I can be of any serve please let me know.

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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You for allowing me to serve as your guide, its was a pleasure. JAKE,

Jake was amazing! He is very knowledgeable about the Civil Rights era in Montgomery and his passion kept us engaged. He was professional, patient, pleasant and an encyclopedia of information. I definitely recommend using his services while touring Montgomery. It would take days to find all the sites we visited on our own and his insider insights were a plus!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: THANK YOU
