Though we had a few miscommunications with the company that forced us to reschedule our tour more than once, when we finally took it, we were quite pleased. The guide was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer about Harlem's architecture or its history. He had many insightful things to say not just about Harlem... More

John Reddick is a wonderful resource. His knowledge of Harlem history, architecture, and passion for his neighborhood made for an incredible day! We're looking forward to taking future tours.

This was the best experience ever! Not only did we get to taste great food, but we got to see a Harlem that I did not know existed. Jackie was an excellent tour guide. She made me feel like I was being given a tour by the ambassador of Harlem. She knows the community and her love of the area... More

My wife and I have done many many guided tours here and in Europe. The Harlem tours - East (Spanish) and West Harlem - are no doubt among the top three walks we ever experienced. Jackie, John and Taina love and know their communities and are gifted guides through fascinating parts of the city, which for many tourists stops north... More

We had the best time on our tour with Jackie. Met great people and had lots of super food and learned a great deal about Harlem. Definitely would recommend as part of your trip to NYC. We can't wait to go back to the nightclubs. Thanks Jackie! Fran and Peter from Miami

Did this tour during a 10 day trip to New York from Australia. A friend and I wanted to visit Harlem and decided a walking/food tour would be the best way to get a sense of the place. So glad we chose this tour. It was a highlight of our whole time in New York. Jackie is a great guide... More

We probably walked the best part of 5 miles during the day and Jacqueline's... More

This tour was excellent. My friend, on leave from her tour of duty in Afghanistan, came to NY to visit and I thought this would be something different. Everyone loves to eat!! Well this tour did not disappoint. Jacqueline (my name sake but no bias here) was very knowledgable about the history and nuances of Harlem. The venues she chose... More
