We just took the tour and it was beyond our greatest expectations. We are New Yorkers but learned so much in 4 hrs. The food was scrumptious and every stop The tea house fabulous. Jackie is the perfect tour guide.

The tour guide Jackie is great. Not only is she extremely personable, but she knows alot about the history of Harlem as well as the current local scene. The food was great and included a number of interesting options I had never tried before (chicken and waffles? sounds crazy but it's really quite good). I found Harlem to be a... More

Did this tour a week ago and loved it. Jackie was informative and seemed to know half of harlem! My personal favourite was the fried chicken and waffles - not only was it so different, it tasted great! Great combo. In addition to the food, Jackie showed us the inside of a renovated brown brick house and being tourists from... More

As VP of Programming for the National Association of Catering Executives (NACE) of NYC, the board decided that our next event would be with Taste Harlem. Our guests are STILL raving about the evening dining tour! Everyone enjoyed their time, especially those who had never ventured to Harlem before (including me). The entire tour was well executed and perfectly timed!... More

We throughly enjoyed our day with Jackie - she's lively, informative and excited about Harlem - exactly the introduction we needed. She's taken the time to research Harlem's history and presents everything in a very impartial manner. The whole neighborhood knows her! Beef ribs, collard greens, chicken and waffles, beans and rice, rugelach, african tea... are you hungry yet? Call... More

She was very knowledgeable, really enjoys what she does and takes the time to answer your questions. Jackie has lived in Harlem for a while so she really knows what is happening there. Was a... More

I recently joined a 4-hour tour with Taste Harlem and it was surely one of the highlights of my 2 week trip to New York. Although I have been in Harlem a few times on my earlier journeys, it was limited to attending a gospel Sunday service - as a solo woman, I did not dare to venture out much... More

I took a group of forty school children from the UK to NYC, and we spent a day with Taste of Harlem, learning Gospel songs, and then later exploring historic Harlem. The care throughout the day was exceptional, with everyone involved going out of their way to support the group. All of my students had an excellent time, got to... More
