Organizer Steve Saenz requires participants to wear a mask at all times.
Saenz also suggests attendees sign up for his free newsletter, ATLsherpa, which is aimed at “people who would like to know Atlanta on a deeper, more meaningful level.” Additionally, ensure you have a hat, water and sunscreen and comfortable shoes to walk in. It’s also recommended that you should bring an iPad if you have one. Pets, however, should be left at home.
Saenz launched the tour in 2020. The Atlanta Freedom Trail Walking Tour stems from the Atlanta Freedom Trail Project. That project’s goal “is to help people explore and connect with ten historic landmarks that commemorate FREEDOM,” according to the website. Aside from the walking tour series, it also includes a multimedia website and an interactive map.
“It occurred to me that there are so many things that are close together that have to do with freedom, liberty and civil rights,” Saenz told the AJC last year.
