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.

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.

Welcome to Harlem

Harlem’s illustrious past and multifaceted present open up to tourists courtesy of Welcome to Harlem’s knowledgeable guides, all of whom are residents of the neighborhood. Day and evening tours are organized by interest, showcasing culinary hot spots, historic jazz venues, stunning architecture, shopping destinations, or rollicking church services. Landmarks such as the legendary Apollo Theater, Columbia University, and the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine open up to guests, providing a casual, intimate view that can’t be attained on an unaccompanied stroll or while being chased by a clown car.

Customer Reviews

Nice tour. When you go to the address make sure to walk two store fronts to the North since it is a big building with 3 entrances. Very nice people with a real passion for their community. Several interesting facts about New York history and Harlem especially were brought to light. It is so great to encounter people with passion.
