The tour became an experience for my wife and I. Joy brought the history of Dr Martin Luther King Jr./ Atlanta’ rich legacy which continues to life for our group to experience. The details were eye openers for us. We’re so glad that we took the time in our vacation to visit MLK Jr. HWT. We left so full. Blessings until next time. Thanks, Anthony and Kelly

I never made the tour, was given the wrong address, and when I called, I was asked to leave my number and someone would contact me, but when they called, they asked was I still in the area, I said no, and they hung up the phone, so I was just out of $40.

Great MLK Walking Experience

Great Walking Experience with Joy. Joy is very friendly and knowledgeable about MLK, his growing years, his influencers, whose Sunday sermons he stole away to listen to, much to the chagrin of his father and Baptist pastor. Joy plays topical audio clips and has a great story to tell you!

Fantastic way to bring history to life. Walking the neighborhood, hearing not just about MLK but also the community that shaped him was really powerful - and our guide, Emily, was a fantastic story teller. Myself, my husband, and 2 kids (12 & 11) thoroughly enjoyed it. The bar is now set very high for all future tours!

An experience not to be missed if in Atlanta!
Monalisa_S
, Apr 2022
This walking tour was everything and more that I had expected it to be. Emily is not just another walking tour guide, she is a very gifted storyteller who not only takes us through the streets and neighborhood on foot but also somehow manages to play history in front of our eyes through her way of storytelling. Not only did all of us learnt something new but felt lumps in our throat and goosebumps during her narration along with some very happy moments. The walking tour led by Emily would also go down as one of my best experiences in Atlanta. More power to Emily and people like her.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable, fun and interactive. This made the experience pleasurable in spite of the cold weather. I had an amazing time and learned so much. I wish that we were still there to actually go inside of MLK,s birth home and church, but even without it, the experience was great!
