Great way to get an education on civil rights era in Birmingham while keeping it short enough for family with young kids. Our 5yo greatly appreciated listening along with us. Easy to follow. Street traffic was low at the time we went (weekday morning) so listening on speaker worked fine for us. Just wish we would have gotten tickets for 16th Street Baptist ahead of time… it was sold out the day of.

Once we figured it out, the tour was wonderful. Very informational and easy to follow. I will be taking another walking tour tomorrow, in a different city.

We arrived in Birmingham on a Monday everything in closed. That's the south! We did the self tour and it was good, it told us about the spots statues in the park and the past during the Civil rights movement.

Everything is in close proximity so it was a good walk for someone just passing through. We were there on a Monday so most places were closed. Would like to go back and tour the inside of the church and see the museum

An excellent experience. Lots of history. Audio was very well planned no details left out. Easy to listen and follow the path. Recommend headphones or ear buds to block out traffic noise.

I learned so much! Grew up during this era and knew “about” the civil rights movement but not the details. It was a great tour with a lot of information that I can review. I liked being able to hear about the location while we were walking. Well done!
