We were given the endpoint of the tour as a starting point when we signed up online. The tour guide contacted us and we were able to meet the rest of the group and take the entire tour, but that led to a half hour late starting time. The tour seemed like a work in progress. Historical information about some... More

A wonderful culturally-enriching experience in the heart of Harlem. We did the Gospel Heritage Walking Tour (Sunday) and Neil was an excellent, engaging host who delivered a great experience for the whole tour. The stories were relevant and exciting, and the gospel service a real experience. Highly recommend!

Our guide Neil was a wealth of information. My wife and I got so much more out of this tour than we thought we would. Our 2-hour tour lasted at least 2.5 hours. We did the Harlem Renaissance tour. Highly recommend it, especially if you want to learn something about NYC and would also like to get away from the... More

One of the must do tours while in New York (I have actually done it three different times bringing different people along). Through Neil we met Mr. Apollo who has had the... More

The Harlem Renaissance Walking Tour was really informative and interesting. Our guide, Neal, gave insight onto Harlem renaissance past and present in a way that tied them together and painted a picture that we can all imagine - not just events, but the sentiment and emotion that surrounded them. His personable style made the tour interactive and fun. Neal even... More

Our tour with Neal Shoemaker was informative, fun, and memorable. Neal loves Harlem, is passionate about its history, and is brimming with optimism about its future. Given his knowledge and love of Harlem’s history and the people and places that make up Harlem today, one gets the sense that he could easily put together an enjoyable week-long tour. Hopefully we’ll... More
