“The travel group is back in the States, vacation is over, how sad! But memories will last for ever! I, as well as others in the travel group really enjoyed the Black history tour. When I talk about my trip, I talk about the Black history tour before I lead into other sights that I have seen. Thanks for the history and knowledge that was gained
Gail Thomas
What an amazing tour! It completely moved me to rethink the intricate web of social, economic and political relations that characterize British imperial rule and racial politics. Engaging, moving, will keep you asking more questions. The best way to get to know London.
