I gained a new perspective on Harlem. Most people will be surprised at the positive way the neighborhood has changed. The guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. It got a bit long towards the end, but you can bow out at any time. All-in-all it was a good event and I would recommend it.

What You'll Get


It’s said that you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them, which is especially true of anyone who wears rocket boots. Walk in others' footsteps with today's Groupon: for $12, you get a walking 90-minute tour of Harlem from Welcome to Harlem (a $25 value). From May until December, tours are available Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday at 11 a.m. They are offered again in March and April on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

During 90-minute jaunts through the historical district, Welcome to Harlem's tour guides recall personal experiences from their time as local residents to educate tourists with intimate area knowledge. Harlemites lead amblers past iconic neighborhood haunts, breezing past legendary nighttime hotspots including the Apollo Theater, the Lenox Lounge, and the Studio Museum, as well as one of New York City's early public libraries. Walkers strolls past Marcus Garvey Park and Doctors Row, a part of the neighborhood lined with charming brownstones. Along the tour route, participants can engage in discourse with the statue of venerable politician Adam Clayton Powell Jr. or play a thumb war with the bellhop at the famous Hotel Theresa.
