I LOVED this tour. There was alot of walking, but you needed it because there was alot of Great Food. My favorite was the Peanut Butter Stew. Our guide was probably the best of the best. There was alot of really neat things to see along the way and we got to visit the Apollo.

Great tour guide. Plenty of food. Fair amount of walking around Harlem learning some history. Enjoyed the group I was with. Liked experiencing food in different ways and food I typically wouldn’t choose to eat.
