Great trip! I learned about Harriet Tubman's early life experiences that prepared her to be a successful conductor on the underground railroad. I also learned that living on the water and there being so much marsh land, the slaves had a different experience than those who lived further south and inland and learned a different skill set. After emancipation, they used those skills to build a thriving community with a school, hospital, businesses, and owned their own land and homes. Then there is the sad, too often repeated, story of how it was taken from them. There are two museums - one sponsored my the community and the other by the National Parks Commission. Both are worth visiting. After the history lesson, there was the crab feast which also featured chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, Cole slaw, and baked beans. Alex, Lisa, and extended family members were personable and hospitable. Alex and Lisa have grown up and lived In the Cambridge area all their lives and it is quite evident that they are proud of its history. I have eagerly told my friends about this trip and three immediately tried to register for the August trip, but there was only seat left! I plan to go again because it it too much to absorb in one trip and I want to take my granddaughter.

Great trip and host. I learned so much on the tour. Everyone traveling was friendly and courteous. The bus driver was great. Helped me off and on the bus each time and was pleasant. Not enough leg room for the bus when sitting upright. I had to swing my legs in aisle to be comfortable. Andrea was great. Otherwise crab feast was just awesome and the place we had it at were so nice. Food was good. Would recommend trip.
