This is a must not only for tourist visiting NY but also for locals like and my wife. Our tour was guided by a person with a deep knowledge of the Harlem architecture, history, important people, changing markets, the Harlem evolution food and religion. A very interesting tour.
She answered all questions and was very pleasant.
Thank you Carolyn you are an A tourist guide.

We had a wonderful experience with Carolyn D. Johnson of Welcome to Harlem for a walking tour around Harlem and
visiting the Memorial Baptist Church, and listening to the choir and prayer. The history of Harlem was so interesting and
unforgettable. Also lunch at the Sexy Taco Dirty Cash Café on Malcolm X Street , then guided to the local bus stop to get back
into New York. Thank you Carolyn.

On a sunny Sunday morning we joined our delightful and engaging tour guide Carolyn for a leisurely walking tour of Harlem. Being a local and living in the area she was able to give us an interesting insight into the rich history and recent development of Harlem and expertly pointed out the architectural features of significant buildings as well as wave and chat to her friends and neighbours along the way. We passed the famous Apollo theatre, strolled through beautiful tree lined streets flanked by the traditional Harlem Brownstone houses and we were warmly welcomed by the congregation of a local Baptist church where we were able to join in the uplifting and very moving singing of the gospel choir. The tour concluded with Carolyn hosting a delicious brunch in a local restaurant where she continued to entertain us with stories of Harlem past and present. A most enjoyable small group tour highly recommended for all.

Even though the day was overcast, our tour guide Carolyn was bright and sunny. Her knowledge of the neighborhood she lives there adds a great color especially as her neighbors recognize her on the street. I truly knew nothing about Harlem but because my Dutch ancestors arrived here a few hundred years ago, I thought maybe it would be a good time to walk their walk. It was a real history lesson and seeing how this area has transformed itself over and over is inspiring. Even though the church we attended was having an unexpected event limited how much we could see and the time we spent there, we were able to get a flavor of their faith community. Thank goodness that Carolyn was our guide...she helped other tour groups because of the unexpected delay. After our tour, she took us to a restaurant that made me wonder.... Wonder no more! Irrespective of its name, Sexy Tacos, it was a fusion of Latin-Soul and some southern! A great surprise. At the end of the tour, she pointed some of us who were still hungry to see things in the direction of downtown and we literally walked 15 minutes to Central Park. Beautiful day in Harlem! A hidden bargain of a tour!

Harlem was a real surprise for me, what a beautiful area with such an interesting history and future. The walking tour was leisurely and informative and the church service was uplifting. Perfect mix of sights and information and lunch was scrumptious.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

Our tour guide was lovely. She walked us around Harlem and gave us a great insight into the area. Church was fun. Lunch was also great. My only recommendation would be to allow more time to stay in Harlem as there is lots to see.

This is a great tour. Our Guide was Carolyn and we were a smaller group of only 5 including her. Even though the weather on the Sunday morning we went was freezing we had a coffee break an hour in and then the church service so we were able to get out of the elements. The tour culminates at the Baptist Church where many other tourist groups also meet. The service itself is broken into two sections so the service only takes an hour at most. From there we went to lunch at the Sexy Taco - about a 10 minute walk from the church. This was included in the price and the mexican food was very good. So if you are looking for a safe and enjoyable way of spending a Sunday morning in Harlem book this tour.
