Hi, I'm Viator!

Hello. Hola. Bonjour. Ciao. 你好. Viator's global community has traveled the world in search of local knowledge and connections to help travelers find and experience the best things to do.

Baptist minister, spokesperson for Black liberation, and advocate for civil disobedience, Martin Luther King Jr. was one of America’s most notable and influential leaders. A key player in the Montgomery bus boycott, the March on Washington, and the Birmingham, Alabama, protests, King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 4, 1968.

Celebrated annually on the third Monday in January, Martin Luther King Jr. Day pays homage to the man who pushed for desegregation, suffrage, and civil rights for Black people across the US. Here are eight tours on which you can learn about his remarkable life and honor his lasting legacy.

1. Tour Martin Luther King Jr.’s Atlanta

Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, this southern city remains the place perhaps most deeply associated with Martin Luther King Jr. On this MLK-themed walking tour of Sweet Auburn, learn about the places which shaped his early life, including the Ebenezer Baptist Church, Martin Luther King Jr. Historical Park, and more. Alternatively, opt for a self-guided intro to Atlanta.

4. Get to know more about Martin Luther King Jr. on a private tour

Go in-depth into Martin Luther King Jr.’s life—and the civil rights movement as a whole—on a private tour of Atlanta, during which you’ll cover key points of interest such as King’s birthplace on Auburn Avenue; the King Center, founded by King’s widow Mrs. Coretta Scott King; and more. You can also tour Atlanta by bus.
