AUGUSTA, Ga. (WFXG) - A bus full of visitors on the James Brown Historic Tour Saturday.

Visitors got a firsthand look at the childhood of one of Augusta's legends.

"We are the only riding tour in Augusta of historic entertainment of any sort. You get to see the whole span of Mr. Brown's life as it pertains to Augusta from the highest of the highs to the lowest of the lows," said Kiki Cofer, the tour director. 

Starting at the Augusta Museum of History, visitors hopped on the tour bus with the music cranked to the one and only "God Father of Soul."

"We play music, we talk, people are you know doing their little vlogs, you never know what you're going to get it's always fun," said Cofer.

Visitors came from all over!

All the way from Tennessee, Johnathan Wilson took a last-minute weekend trip to experience the James Brown history.

"Honestly, I didn't know a lot about Augusta, but I knew James Brown was from here, so I came to look at the monument and just come on the tour," said Wilson.

Some of the new additions include his childhood home, his elementary school, and the recently opened exhibit of the brown family home.

If you are interested in booking a tour, they run every Saturday starting at 10:30a.m.

You can go to the James Brown Family Foundation's website to reserve your spot.
