Even my son who's a local learned quite a lot about his neighborhood. We topped it off with lunch at Ben's Chili Bowl and then visited the African American Civil War Museum, which Tim pointed out at a stop on the tour. His playlist completed the experience.

Tim is an articulate and thoughtful storytelling. You can practically see the history that he is describing. We learned so much from the tour and have already recommended it to several friends!

Wonderful tour for history buffs! Tim is a great storyteller. I love the mix of walking around Black Broadway to see the mural and buildings as well as looking at old photos and newspapers. Highly recommend!

Definitely a lot to learn, and to see how times have changed, I'm glad in learned a new side to this City I wouldn't have known otherwise.
