Style: Indulgent, Wholesome

This tour first leads us through Mount Morris Park Historical District area. Here you will find a multitude of churches rich with history and also where our founding fathers made their homes. Some of the most well known musicians and entertainers started their journeys here. Much of the music that began here is now immortalized in American Pop Culture for future generations to enjoy.

Heading through uptown on a Sunday morning you will hear and enjoy the sights and sounds of Harlem at its best. Toe-clapping, foot-stomping, and the soulful rhythms of Black gospel music fill the air; participate in sermons and homilies given by Harlem's most prominent, whose renowned singers will have you jumping in your seat.

Now that you have the feel of the spiritual energy flowing through you what about topping off your day with some of the area's best kept secrets? Fine dining at reasonable prices. Let Harlem's finest culinary masters delight and tempt you with their authentic ethnic delights - just for you!

We had a wonderfull tour through Carolyn´s nighbourhood, Harlem. We really felt, that Carolyn loved her nighbourhood and she had a lot of good stories and information, that she shared with us. We visited one of the churches, where we experienced a powerfull sermon and overwhelming gospel We ended up eating together in a small diner.

I went with Carolyn to check the tour this past Sunday and you are not visiting Harlem with another tour guide. Carolyn has lived Harlem through good and bad times, she was born and raised there, the street vendors are her friends and through the tour you understand she is Harlem - in addition, I had to run in the middle of the tour (before the Gospel) and i was so disappointed, she kindly offered me to come and join a group at another time which i will definitely do. Check it, I went through less than half the tour and it is already worth it!


Two of us had the best New York experience ever on a beautiful Sunday in Harlem. Greeted by a knowledgable and funny Carolyn, we are now total Harlem converts and have not shut up telling our friends how they MUST visit Harlem and have Carolyn as their guide. Including telling a native New Yorker when we up at the Tatzu Nishi:Discovering Columbus. Informative and great fun, it was like spending the morning with a friend showing you around their neighbourhood. Carolyns passion for where she lives comes across beautifully and she's greeted by everyone - so we felt more like members of the community than mere tourists. I urge you to take this tour and have a wonderful timemorning with an amazing lady!
