It was such an informative tour. Our guide was so knowledgeable, energetic and enthusiastic about a place she truly values and enjoys. What a pleasure seeing how Harlem has revitalized through the years. Hooray for the building height restrictions! After the tour, enjoyed a fabulous lunch at Sylvia's!

This is my second time taking the tour. I love to tour guide. She is extremely personable and knowledgeable. She has lived in Harlem 41 years and has plenty of knowledge to share. I love the Welcome to Harlem tours. What more can you ask for than a resident that was there?
