We really enjoyed the experience of taking this tour. Kenny went over and above to make sure this tour was worth taken. His knowledge of D.C. and what took place here was remarkable. If ever in DC again I would take this trip again. As long as Kenny is the tour guide.

Totally enjoyed my tour of African American history yesterday. Kenny is very knowledgeable of AA history especially being born and lived in DC. You get a good perspective of the city and journey of AA in DC. Showed many landmarks including Howard, AA Civil war memorial. Seeing Frederick Douglas house and learning more about him was one of my highlights. The Smithsonian AA Museum was the icing on the cake! Well worth the money and good experience. You’ll enjoy the tour.
