This is an excellent tour. Joy, our tour guide was wonderful. Very knowledeable about the area and Martin L. King. Too bad Center is closed for covid, but Joy took us on a wonderful walk in the area, saw MLK house, Madam Walker hair salon etc. Really worthwhile. A must to do when in Atlanta !

Emily was a fabulous tour guide. She had numerous interesting facts that weren’t in the standard text books. The best part was going into the former beauty salon and meeting the current owner.

Very very informative, Emily was great. I think it was a bit pricey, especially seeing that we were unable to go into certain places, the price should have reflected it, but the presentation was great.

Hi Pamela! We're so thrilled that you found our King Historic District Tour enriching. Emily does a great job, and is very passionate about Dr. King's history and legacy, and as always she aims to go that extra mile. We would also like Thank You for your purchase with us as it directly impacts businesses and nonprofits in the area such as the Madam CJ Walker Museum. We do hope you are able to join us in the future when stops along our way like the Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, and The King Center reopen to the public.
