  • This was the best tour so far on our Civil Rights Trail road trip. To be standing in a place that I have read about and watched documentaries about was powerful. The tour guides were so knowledgeable about this tragedy that happened before any of them were born. The church is beautiful. The film was very powerful. The 10:22 clock was real life. I highly recommend this tour to all history buffs and civil rights buffs. This tour is well worth your time and money! Only $15.90 for two people and it was the best tour by far! ❤️
  • Great tour. Great reminder on the history of the Church and there is actually a lot of history I didn't know.
