This was a lot of fun! I think historical walking tours are probably my favorite thing to do and ones that are socially relevant are even better!  It was a VERY big group for MLK day which I think is probably not usually the case, so our poor tour guide had to yell. But nonetheless she was very informative and engaging and wove MLK into the stories expertly. I'm sure there are some less expensive tours, but Big Onion really does have the best selection and their tour guides are historians who really love what they are talking about!
