This was an amazing tour. Our guide, Deion, was absolutely amazing. He took us to great sites and gave us a very understandable background story at each site. So we truly appreciated the significance and real importance of each site. Deion really captured the attention of the college age students in our group. I don’t even think they blinked when Deion talked, especially the last story that tied the events together. I can’t thank Deion enough for putting his heart and soul into our tour. It brings tears to my eyes to imagine all of the hearts and minds that Deion has touched. (Mine included) DEION is THE BEST tour guide we have ever had. If you are looking for a life changing tour, then take this one with Deion. We are very grateful to this tour company and Deion. Very safe and good driver too.

Get away from the usual tourists attractions!

This tour gives great insights into the vibrant U Street corridor with its historical attractions like the Howard Theater, Ben's Chili Bowl, etc. The food stops are diverse...and even if you don't like the food on every stop it is worth it to understand the neighborhood's character and diversity. The Civil War monument, along with an impressive and knowledgeable young man in period clothing was a highlight.

the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable on everything dealing with Washington DC and not just limited to the things related to African American history. this trip covered a lot of ground in a short amount of time. The only thing I would request is that they give written directions of how to get back to the area that you were originally picked up at.

A powerful and moving experience!! Do whatever you can to get here. And plan to spend some good quality time. There's a lot to absorb - mentally and physically. It's surely worth your time. It won't disappoint!!

This tour was completely undersold, so much more was provided!

Our driver and tour guide were amazing! Very knowledgeable and interactive. I would highly recommend this tour. Note: this really requires a full day and would recommend bringing snacks.
