Here we highlight a few of the trip’s exclusive experiences.

A Meaningful Walk

The Edmund Pettus Bridge

Nothing can quite prepare you for the feeling of walking in the footsteps of tireless heroes across the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Recognized as a National Historic Landmark, it was here that thousands of peaceful protestors marched for voting rights and were met with a violent resistance from opposing authorities.

Witness History

The National Civil Rights Museum & the Civil Rights Trail

Forever etched in the pages of history, the Lorraine Motel was where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was tragically assassinated in 1968. Since then, it has evolved into the National Civil Rights Museum; teaching future generations about the movements and moments that impact our culture today. Over nine days, you’ll follow the Civil Rights Trail and visit many historical locations and landmarks.

Find Connection through Music

The Spirit of Gospel

Hear the power and emotion behind American gospel music in the heartbeat of the South as you learn about the traditional ‘freedom songs’ that connected every note with the struggles of slavery and the strength to carry on.

Trafalgar knows the places that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime. That’s why they design their tours with a depth of culture. Every tour is designed so you cross off the must-sees and enjoy exclusive access to the local people and places through responsible travel.
