This tour is run by Carolyn Johnson who is a wealth of knowledge about Harlem. We just loved the tour and all her interesting information, especially since we were in a small group of 10 so she was able to chat and answer all our questions.I couldn't believe how beautiful and welcoming Harlem is. It was great to see the Apollo theatre where a lot of people, including Ella Fitzgerald were discovered. The brunch was very good and included champagne if you wanted it! The tour was worth every penny and the highlight of our stay.
On Carolyn's recommendation we went back on our last day to try the soul food in Amy Ruth's restaurant. It was certainly different, very reasonable and we all enjoyed our meal very much - including the candied yams. The staff were brilliant and made us feel very welcome. Try the coconut and pineapple cake - but share it with someone else!!
