what a wonderful day with Debi! She was so informative in a friendly, fun and interesting way. i was so glad my friend discovered this fabulous walking tour online and booked it for us as it wouldn't have been my first choice. But I highly recommend it. Go and learn about its history, present and future!…

Review of: Harlem Gospel and Brunch Tour
We did the tour on Sunday Feb 2nd with Carolyn. We were just a small group which was great. Carolyn was amazing, she was friendly and her knowledge was outstanding, we learnt so much and it was so interesting. We met Franco the Great who has transformed Harlem’s streets with his amazing artwork. The Apollo Theatre was awesome, it’s a shame we couldn’t go inside (this would be worth paying for). The Gospel choir were great but we would have preferred more singing than seeing the ‘information’ parts of the service. We were waiting for 2 people at the start of the tour so maybe if they had turned up we would have made it to the church earlier to see more of the gospel. The brunch was good at a Mediterranean restaurant, not really the ‘soul food’ we were expecting however it was really good. There are cheaper tours of Harlem but I would definitely 100% recommend this one with Carolyn as you get what you pay for and the smaller groups make it much more enjoyable. Thank you Carolyn.…

Review of: Harlem Renaissance Walking Tour with Lunch
I enjoyed my walking tour of Harlem with my WONDERFUL guide. I had many questions, and she had all the answers. This was no college student working a summer job. This lovely lady was born in the neighborhood and knew ALL about the neighborhood from her many decades there. In spite of wind and rain we made our way through many historical sites and sights. AND UNLIKE SOME TOUR OPERATORS, this company didn’t cancel my tour because I was the only person who signed up for the tour. A wonderful and memorable experience.…
