Excellent tour! Wish we could have stayed longer and toured the National Civil Rights Museum, however, just visiting the Lorraine hotel was very surreal, gave me goose bumps! Larry is an awesome tour guide and a really cool guy. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it!

It was really enjoyable. Larry was very funny, unpretentious, and full of the Southern laid back personality. He was also punctual and responsible. The tour was succinct with all the highlights and back stories of every site we visited. Overall, it was a very relaxing and stress-free experience. The sampling at the Central BBQ was also very timely. We got in just before the crowd showed up, and was able to enjoy it with no stress either. Thanks Larry!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2017

Tour was as described , the bus was comfortable and the operator was knowledgeable and entertaining. What was described as a BBQ tasting was actually a very satisfying lunch including non alcoholic beverage. Operator allowed adequate time at each stop to ask questions. This tour, including lunch, is a great value.
