I knew seeing the Martin Luther King Jr Historical sites were high on my priority list. But being I am from AZ, I did not know the area. So my friend and I were delighted to find a tour. I did not have high expectations, but hoped they would at least know where to take us. Leigh was a spectacular tour guide! We saw so many historical sites away from the center! And her knowledge was above an beyond what we were expecting. So grateful for her guidance.

I toured Atlanta with a few friends. Jim(?) our tour guide and our driver were amazing! Great history and stories about the city. It was a great opportunity to cover as much of Atlanta as we could in 5 hours. We definitely felt the time was well spent!

I saw alot of Atlanta in a short amount of time and it was a pleasure with the two guides-they know Atlanta!! Many thanks,

It was great! I loved seeing all the different kind of animals.
