We had a tour with George and it was great. We tried to book a free walking tour but it was full. So while at first I didn’t like the idea of paying $25 a person I still think it was worth it. There were...More
My wife and I went on this tour on 28th September 2019. Our guide was George and he did a tremendous job: he imparted a lot of very interesting material in an engaging and charming way. We learned a lot about this little known area...More
Four of us went to New York to see shows and take in the sights. Fortunately one of our group thought to make reservations for this walking tour. I can’t say enough about what a great choice it was. Our guide George was so knowledgeable,...More

We had a fabulous morning tour of Harlem by the lovely Doris Lee - who was as entertaining as she was informative. Being taken round by someone local, who clearly cares about the area gave us a real feel for the Harlem of old and...More

As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
