An expert guide will take you to the must-see sites of Atlanta, Dr. King's birthplace, where he grew up and developed his leadership to become a global icon.

You will discover his wonderful history as you walk through legendary sites that marked a before and after in the consolidation of the movement against racial segregation in the USA, among which stand out:

  • Sweet Auburn: explore the African-American neighbourhood where Atlanta's civil rights movement has historically been rooted.

You'll also have the opportunity to visit the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame, a space dedicated to honouring the struggle of iconic activists who participated in the movement alongside Luther King, such as John Lewis and Rosa Parks.

    Great guide. I knew it was a long hike, but I told the guide that I was not in very good physical condition and he accompanied me all the way. He made sure I understood the history and didn't overwhelm me with the hike.

    We had good weather for walking. We shared a good time with the group and everyone was very attentive, the guide promoted the integration of the group. He asked questions so that everyone could interact and have a very enriching experience.
