I couldn't be more pleased by the honor and passion in which Chiquita shared Nashville's Black History. The tour left us inspired to continue celebrating, honoring & sharing the stories of those who paved the way for us today. If nothing else you leave the tour championing to educate yourself on the perspectives that are being silenced in our world.

I had a amazing time and learned a lot! They were very knowledgeable about the history! Wear comfortable clothes and good walking shoes! I felt safe at every location we stopped at. We went over the time allotted and they were very patient. ( thank you a million) Very entertaining and not your average tour! The only suggestion I would have to give is to try to make the ending place where the tour began. Although we weren’t that far from the starting point, we were able to find our way back easily and enjoyed some amazing soul food when the tour was over. (Disclaimer: the food was not apart of the tour, we ate afterwards on our own and the guides DID ask if we knew how to get back)

What a great tour. I was entertaining a friend from Portland, OR and we left so informed and enthralled in the tour we didn't want it to end. I will definitely bring my husband and children back for the longer, more extensive version. Thank you United Street Tours!
