Don't waste your time.

What can I say about tour? Well, our tour guide(Jack)was very knowledgeable about the history of Harlem. He pointed out various sights and neighborhoods and provided us with the history of those sites. He was also very considerate and accommodating in slowing his pace for those that struggled with the walk. But now for the tour itself, I was very disappointed because the sites that I wanted to see no longer exist. So I spent 3 hours walking around in the ghetto.
Don’t bother!

We received a text just before our scheduled time that it would start been 4:00 pm and 4:15. We waited until 4:15 still no tour guide. Don’t bother unless you have time to wait and don’t mind standing in front of the Apollo while you do it. I am going to try to get my money back!
“Bill- the so called father figure from the 1950’s or should I say do you know what Juneteenth is??!!

Well let me start with fit the Old white male who thinks he was a teacher. Bill was the most condenseding human being that we left after 20 minutes. A waste of time and I believe I should be reimbursed my tour fee. Thank you Sandra Feather
It’s a no for me

Totally not what we expected. Tour guide was nice, but the tour was wack. Waste of time and money. I do not recommend.
Rip off

I shouldn't even give this 1 star since the tour guide never showed up, but I would agree it was terrible. The tour guide and the tour company never tried to contact us. When we tried to call the number for the tour company, the call would disconnect. This was more than a little shady and we're trying to get our money back.

Dear Russell, We have sent you an email as well as message via the booking plattform. The tour that you were scheduled on did indeed take place as planned with 3 other guests in it. Our guide reached out to you via text message and calls the night before and the morning of the tour to confirm your participation yet there was no answer from you. We have emailed you the records of us reaching out to you for your reference. We waited for your party for a good 10 minutes before the tour started as the other participants couldn't have their day delayed any longer.

Our tour guide Jack was fabulous~ genuinely personable & very knowledgeable~ he was a delight to spend an afternoon with. Obviously he loved his job & went above & beyond to research & share interesting little known points of interest/history. He also gauged the pace of the tour to accommodate the participants.
