    What to Expect
    On this tour, you'll learn about Harlem's rich history while sampling a variety of dishes from distinctive restaurants. After the tour, use your newly acquired knowledge to explore Harlem's many culinary and cultural gems.
    Harlem’s culture means much more than eating. Whether or not you're a native New Yorker, this unique and fun tour will be to place Harlem on your “must do” list in the city.
    On this guided tour, tasting selections are subject to change, but typically include:
    • An authentic Soul Food restaurant
    • A Spanish Caribbean eatery
    • A French West African Café
    • A neighborhood bakery
    • An amazing tea and spice shop
    All tastings are included in your ticket price. For most guests, enough food is served that a meal afterwards is not needed. You will also be given a bottle of water per person at the start of the tour.
    Do not eat before the tour. You will be eating a lot of food!

    This tour was excellent. I did this with my 16-year-old son and he enjoyed the history and of course the food. I would totally do this again.

    Hello Aileen, Sorry for the delay with my reply. I am just now seeing your message. The issues we had at that time all happen on the same day and it was not a typical tour date. Please consider us on a future visit to NYC.
