Our guide was very knowledgeable about the neighborhood and it's history, architecture and people. The highlight of the tour was the presentation at the African American Civil War Museum. We have been recommending this tour to all our friends.

I think this was my favorite walking tour thus far. The route wasn't that long, but the history of the area was brought to life by both the tour guide and the curator? of the African-American Civil War Museum to which we were guided. I loved it!!
