Your guide, using local knowledge, will relate stories to you in an understandable format, using photographs/video from the 1960s onward depicting the neighborhoods you will visit. You can almost feel the atmosphere as you stand at the exact spots these events took place on over fifty years later in the present. Vehicles are new MPVs, fully air conditioned, comfortable and safe

Feel the atmosphere as you stand on the exact spots where historic events took place and learn the stories of the individuals involved.
