Programma

We will experience the nightlife in Washington DC in a famous area called "U Street", an area known for its role in the African American jazz scene,
We will stop first at the Ben's Chili Bowl Mural
WHILE MOST VISITORS FLOCK TO Ben’s Chili Bowl on U Street for its signature half-smoke sausage, the beloved Washington, D.C., landmark also boasts a spectacular mural that celebrates notable Black Americans.
Next stop will be the African American Civil War Memorial & Museum where the first memorial dedicated solely to the Black troops who fought for the Union. WHEN THE REBEL STATES REFUSED to rejoin the Union early in the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation and created a number of regiments in the Union Army and Navy filled with Black soldiers. This memorial in Washington, D. C. honors those units, who faced particular viciousness from the opposing army and discrimination from within their own. More than 200,000 Black Americans filled the 175 regiments of the United States Colored Troops (USCT), comprising approximately one-tenth of the Union’s forces.
Last stop will be the Howard theatre, throughout the decades, Black music stars have performed at this historic hub for music and the arts. THE HOWARD THEATRE, KNOWN AS the first Black theater in America, was founded in 1910 in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington, D.C.

Laurent, the owner, confirmed that I would be meeting with Nur via message through the AirBnb site. He provided a contact number "in case I couldn't find the location" and he requested my contact number. I was only provided the location of "U St NW" with a directions link. I took an Uber and the driver dropped me off on the corner of U and Vermont which is where the provided link took us. I arrived at 5:40pm for the 6:00pm tour. I began calling the provided contact number at 5:45pm and no one answered. I left a voice mail message stating where I was and that I needed help locating where they were. I again provided my contact number. I sent a text message and called 2 more times. In addition, I sent 2 messages on the AirBnb site. I am traveling alone and did not feel safe just hanging around and no one ever contacted me back. I spent $25 on an Uber ride to a tour that did not take place. I asked to be compensated for that as well. Therefore, I am really asking for $55 to be sent to me, $30 for the tour and $25 for the Uber ride that I wouldn't have taken if I would have been informed that this tour was cancelled or at the very least, if someone would have given me the professional courtesy of calling me back when I was left in a precarious situation. I had to send a message with AirBnb's resolution center to request a refund. Laurent has since apologized for their mistake and refunded my $30 fee, however I have not received a response in 2 days for the wasted Uber fare. The only reason I gave this a star at all was because it was the only way to complete my review of my experience. I would have given "0" stars if the system would have allowed me to.

The first time the guide did not show up, as booking manager Laurent had confirmed the tour without informing the guide Nur! The following week (as a replacement) the guide was again not there due to a personal issue and was not able to inform us in advance. Finally the tour started 45 minutes later. The tour was fine overall and provided an interesting perspective on U St but not worth the hassle of repeated miscommunications.

Even though I live in nearby Maryland and have been to this part of DC often, I learned so much and the tour was so enjoyable. Excellent time!

Nur gave us a great tour! It was amazing to learn about the back story and context of the wall murals. My perspective on historical events as I knew them definitely were broadened!

Nur is a great energy and his passion about Black history and this area makes the experience so memorable! I learned a lot of interesting things about the area and explored places I wouldn’t have otherwise. Great little tour!

Nur is knowledgeable and passionate about his city! I think the tour should start a bit earlier given the sun is setting earlier.
