We took the Charlotte Pilgrimage Tour with Jay. It was a great experience. Jay was prompt, professional, and very informative about past and present culture. I highly recommend this tour and look forward to other tours.
My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our Black Pilgrimage Tour. We saw many historic sites and gained a better understanding of the history of the Hornets Nest, Reginald Hawkins, and many other historic information of the Black Experience in Charlotte and Mecklenburg County.
I booked the tour for me, my aunts, and my 12 year old daughter. We absolutely loved all the knowledge that Jay shared about the area, buildings, and homes. I was happily surprised when my 12 year old mentioned some of the information over our lunch later on.
