What makes this tour special

Atlanta is a city rich in stories and storytelling is a distinguishing feature of Southern culture. Speech artistry, beautifully expressed and compelling in content, is endemic: a characteristic of the Georgian love affair with the spoken word, and strong narrative impulse. On your private tour, you will: 

Atlanta has some colossal names that call the city home, from Martin Luther King and Coca-Cola to the world’s busiest airport. Prosperity in Atlanta means an ever-changing skyline throughout Midtown, Downtown, and the outer fringes of the city as its population continues to experience dramatic growth. Reach back into the mid 1800s to discuss how the building of a railroad created Atlanta, prompting soft drink giant Coca-Cola to open there in 1886 and expand into a global concern. 

Electric streetcars arrived in 1889, spawning new residential suburbs that today form an intrinsic part of Atlanta’s heritage. Later the city emerged as the home of the Civil Rights Movement, a powerful frontline role that altered the course of history. Historic sites, landmarks and museums celebrate Martin Luther King’s achievements and the black history in the South. On the Half Day Highlights Tour, delve into Atlanta's history and hear the tales that make the Civil War and the Civil Rights Movement come alive. Today Asian and Latin American cultures are interfused with the Irish, African-American, German and Austrian immigrants that played a role in the city's early history. The result is a vibrant mix of languages, cuisines, music and cultures that lends this world-class Southern city an exciting, energetic buzz.
