During the 22 years that I lived in NYC, I never visited Harlem. Read about the "free" tour...where you pay what you believe the tour is worth. Nothing to lose.....and found that there was everything to gain. We had a well informed guide, Derrick. For two plus hours, our group walked through historic neighborhoods learning as we walked. The architecture as well as the history of Harlem is most interesting. I am so glad that I came upon this tour. I will definitely take other tours when next in NYC...and also in Washington DC.

The tour was well organised and fantastic. Our guide Dereck was exceptional. My only regret is that I didn't discover this company earlier on in my stay as I would have liked to do all of their New York tours!!

I went on five different tours, and I found them to be better than the paid tours I did in NYC, so I stopped doing other tours. The food tours were a lot of fun and I used them to know where to go back and eat with friends later on.

I have already recommended to friends that they should be doing these tours. You learn more, have more fun, meet more people, and yet they are cheaper than other tours.

Great tour. Brian was part actor and historian . This tour was as good as a tour we took of Gettysburg . His native Boston accent added to the experience . After two tours, we were a bit tired and Brian even guided us thru the subway system (MTA) back to our Hotel. As a native New Englander , we have a good sense of our history. But his knowledge about the area was so complete , I learned a few things that were very interesting.

After visiting NY several times, this time we went on a 6 hour tour of Lower Manhattan with the Free Tours by Foot: www.freetoursbyfoot.com . The tour was very interesting, we got to see and understand many aspects of the city. The guide, Derrick Edwards, was excellent, both knowledgeable and charming .
