“Offering wonderful insights into Jacksonville's African-American links to the Harlem RenaissanceRi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2012

We are relatively new to Jacksonville and trying to get a feel for the City and its communities. This was probably one of the most personable and well informed tour guides, we have ever experienced. Wonderful exhibits of old Jacksonville's black community and its leaders. An interesting robotic presentation of James Weldon Johnson's life. Although we were part of a larger educational group, the tour was pitched to folks who had lived in Jacksonville, but I'm sure that if your party is from out of the area that adjustments could be made by the tour guide.
