Great tour of Harlem

This was a great tour. The food and history were both excellent. Jacqueline was a knowledgeable and charming guide. Bonus points for going through with the tour even though it was just my wife and I. I highly recommend it. I've done various NYC tours and Harlem offers both unique tastes and really interesting (and different) stories.

We started with grits and chicken and waffles. Then a walking tour with interesting historical information about Harlem. And more food-west African, southern and Jewish. Jacqueline loves her community and is a delight. Terrific!

A Delicious Peek into the History & Architecture of Harlem

Jacqueline was a fabulous host, steering us through important points of interest. It was fascinating to hear how she has tailored her tour according to customer feedback. While historic waves of immigration through Harlem (e.g. Jews, Irish, Italians) are not represented through food, Jacqueline was able to weave a robust history lesson into her walking tour. She was welcoming and well prepared for all the needs of her guests. Our food portions were satisfying and very tasty. We have recommended this tour to friends and family without hesitation.

One of the BEST tours i've ever been on! The food was AMAZING and there was so much. We were stuffed by the end. The tour guide did a great job of giving the history of the area. It is, however, a lot of walking so be prepared!

This gal, Jacqueline Orange, really knows Harlem and so she pased on all that knowledge to our tour group. Loved her and how she presented this most interesting part of Manhatten. The food was fantastic too!

The tour started off well, at a restaurant with chicken and waffles. However, the tour wasn't what I expected. One of the stops of this food tour was at a grocery store, where the guide bought food from the store's deli. At times, the guide would just start walking crossing the street without us knowing to follow her. Both my co-traveler and I were disappointed in the tour. A positive part of the tour...the guide was extremely nice, so I don't take anything away from her personally.

Great time, other than started an hour late as the guide Jacqui had her time and Viator's time feeds differently combining different sources. But that was okay, we wandered around for an hour. Great food and plenty of it, but more importantly great history and knowledge of what formed Harlem and how it has ebbed and flowed and changed over the years. Excellent day.

That is a great tour exploring Harlem and the amazing food choice. Thanks to our guide Ms Jacqueline Orange. She told us a lot about the Harlem history, how much changes that had been going on in recent decade. She took us to several places to taste food like chicken waffle, soul food good and value for money, amazing french pasteries and African food. The restaurant that serves the African food is so delicious i have already recommended my friend who is a NY resident to check out this place. A very wonderful tour that brought much joy to us despite the wet and windy weather we had that day.
