Excellent tour, worth the price. Clear story of Harlem through NYC history. Very personable, knowledgeable guide. He was multi-lingual, but our tour was in English. Fascinating that of 8 on tour, 2 of us from USA (Georgia and SC), couple from Paris, couple from Amsterdam, and two individuals from Australia! Church was a real experience and we were warmly welcomed. End, for brunch, was in superb small restaurant and we were permitted open selection from regular menu. Mine was waffle with real whipped cream, fresh fruit, bacon, and coffee. A fully rounded tour. Creator, owner joined us at restaurant. I visit NYC about twice a year and recommend this tour.

From the moment we met Carolyn and Jonathan they were great. We even had a party in our group who didn’t speak English very well and Jonathan would do quick translations for them. Tour was great very insightful of life in Haarlem The actual service was something else that I will never forget.
