The most memorable part of the trip was the tour ambassador Jeff was a true historian and was able to really give you a accurate version of the true Black history and how Atlanta help shaped the civil rights movement. I was really impressed as the history of this tour now makes the current events in Atlanta more understandable.

Jeff, our tour guide was quite knowledgeable about the aspects of our tour. He provided us great detail of the history and current events going on in the tour area. Seeing the MLK memorial was one of the highlights of the trip. And being an educator, seeing all the college campuses in the area was impressive.
