“Mr. Hancock is a fabulous tour guide! I have worked alongside him providing a tour in the Charlotte, NC area. Unlike other tour guides Mr. Hancock is both personable and professional. He takes the time to get acquainted with tourists, learn the groups interests and will rearrange his tour schedule to make those personable accommodations for his customers. It's like having a personal guide to escort you in unfamiliar territory all the while sharing historical data and amazing scenic routes. Did I mention he's fun as well? What stands out for me most is while touring with him there were several persons on board with special needs. Mr. Hancock accommodated their needs and made the tour enjoyable for all!"

Mr. Tom Hancock is an excellent historian who performed a spirited walking tour for The Raleigh News and Observer Newspaper's sponsorship of author Eleanora E. Tate's young adult book Celeste's Harlem Renaissance in April 2007. The walking tour was based on historical events in Ms. Tate's book, whose setting was downtown Raleigh, NC in the 1920s. Mr. Hancock was assisted by Wake County librian Wanda Cox Bailey. Mr. Hancock pointed out existing Black-owned buildings and locations where other Black-owned businesses had existed to an enthusiastic group of walkers. These businesses and buildings were mentioned in Ms. Tate's historical fiction book and are part of downtown Raleigh's history.
Because of Mr. Hancock's and Mrs. Bailey's expertise and Ms. Tate's book, participants in the walking tour learned about segments of the Capital City's history that they had not been aware of previously.
