Tour description

The core historical part of Atlanta offers a great insight to Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement.
Explore his birthplace, church, and where he is buried next to his wife, Coretta Scott King.
On this tour, we talk about Atlanta's unique history: the Civil War, Coca-Cola, The Civil Rights Movement, etc. Also, we talk about Atlanta today: the world's busiest airport (Hartsfield-Jackson), The Olympics, and Jackson Street Bridge (if you have seen The Walking Dead this is for you).

  • Ebenezer Baptist Church. 
  • The King Center. 
  • Historic Fire Station No. 6

The Atlanta civil rights tour was informative and fun; Phil provided valuable context--history of Atlanta, other events in the civil rights movement--for what we were seeing. And he was entertaining as well.
