The tour was exactly as posted. We were part of Kevin’s Family and he was absolutely terrific. I really appreciated the sharing of actual Gospel Music as we journeyed. History, architecture, and the experience of worshiping in a African American Gospel church was a great end to a Sunday morning spent with my teenagers. Kudos to Kevin and the tour company.
