What wonderful excursion! My friend and I started off running late (ugh). Carolyn was so helpful in helping us connect with the group! Natalie was a wonderful tour guide.. very engaging and knowledgeable of the history of Harlem. The bonus.. we met some amazing new friends. We all met afterwards at the local jazz club and had a blast! This tour is highly recommended!!
A Haarlem slice of history, then and now!

Felt comfortable with the guide from the very start! She was personable, informative, and helpful. I am going to Hamilton tonight based on her discounted app suggestion! You can tell she really enjoys what she does.
Enjoyable but Contrived

We were part of a small party, there was just one other couple. Our guide was excellent and we heard some of the history of Harlem as we walked between venues. The music was excellent at the first venue and another large party arrived with another tour guide. The 2nd venue was in the basement of a Brownstone. The music here was not as good as the first venue. However, there was a sense that the music was just stayed for the tour groups. Both bands were waiting our arrival and it seems they finish when we depart. The makeshift car in the 2nd location was staffed by a rude woman and this location was a very average experience. It was good to see Harlem and the music at the first venue was excellent. However, the overall feel was that everything was a bit contrived.
