Jacqueline gave some really amazing stories about Black history and challenged us to think critically about our shared histories. It was fairly cold and rainy, so unfortunately Jacqueline was unable to run the tour the way she would have liked, but despite that, she found a way to keep the energy up. She's extremely knowledgeable and we all had a great chat in between stops.

Jaqueline was a great tour guide and full of great information. We learned a lot. Our tour was during covid shut downs and a nearby protest so Jaqueline had to modify our route. Between Jaquelines storytelling and the beautifull weather we had a great experience. Thanks Jaqueline!

This was an awesome tour for tourists or people who don’t know much about Black history in Canada! Not much about Toronto specifically but informative nonetheless ☺️
