A good tour for educational purposes. The building has great designs . The tour guide himself is a great addition to the tour. The stories he told us were historical.

We were in town for the Auburn/Texas A&M game and took time to tour the capital. The tour guide was an amazing man who had marched with Dr. King and had amazing stories to share.
