Jacqueline was our tour guide. She did a great job and very pleasant. Loved the Soul Food and African food. I would suggest wearing comfortable walking shoes and bringing water. I also wore a sun hat. Lots of history about Harlem. It was fun.

Your Tour Guide Jackie will ask if there are any diet restrictions at the beginning of the tour. She can accommodate everyone’s preference. Just clarify your preference at the beginning of your tour!
