Our popular Harlem tour takes us through a neighborhood which for years was associated with New-York’s dangerous appeal. We will experience a gospel service, walk through the colorful streets and explore some of Harlem’s rich history- from its early days as a Dutch colony through its glorious Harlem renaissance age to its becoming an Afroamerican epicenter and soul food empire.

Our tour of three iconic neighborhoods begins in the NoHo neighborhood on a street that brings together the Italian & Jewish mafia, Andy Warhol and iconic punk culture.
We will walk through the bustling streets of the Lower East Side which tell the story of New-York’s first immigrant neighborhood and enjoy some of the iconic food it offers. We will explore the graffiti works, visit an iconic cafe dedicated to counter culture and see contemporary art exhibits in some of the best galleries the city has to offer.
We will cross through the narrow streets and colorful markets of Chinatown to explore some of its magic, enter a Buddhist temple that was once an Adult film theater, walk through the parks where women play infinite bridge and men play cards and forget for a moment we are in New York.
