From Bondage to the Promised Land Tour

If you'd like to learn more about Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad, there's a unique opportunity to take a special trip back in time. It's a tour sponsored by Mikki's Tours by Taste. It's called "From Bondage to the Promised Land."

The tour takes you from Savannah to Canada, with many stops along the path of the Underground Railroad, including a visit to the home where Harriet Tubman grew up. Organizers are hoping guests won't ever forget the experience.

"An in-depth knowledge of their roots, where they came from," said organizer Martha Massey. "Some of the endurances that our slave ancestors went through and where they would be able to appreciate where they came from more so they can know what direction they should go."

The seven-day tour leaves on June 18. To make reservations call (912)234-8091 or email Mikki Massey at  mikki@mikkitoursbytaste.com.
