Harlem Historical Food Tour
US$79.00
Overview
Taste your way through Harlem's eclectic food scene on a 4-hour walking tour. Sample traditional soul food, African cuisine and Caribbean bites as you explore the neighborhood on foot with a local guide. Listen as your guide fills you in on the rich history, culture and traditions of the vibrant neighborhood. Be sure to bring your appetite, you won't leave hungry; you'll walk away with a list of restaurants you can return to in the future.
What to Expect
On this tour, you'll learn about Harlem's rich history while sampling a variety of dishes from distinctive restaurants. After the tour, use your newly acquired knowledge to explore Harlem's many culinary and cultural gems.

Harlem’s culture means much more than eating. Whether or not you're a native New Yorker, this unique and fun tour will be to place Harlem on your “must do” list in the city.

On this guided tour, tasting selections are subject to change, but typically include:

  • An authentic Soul Food restaurant
  • A Spanish Caribbean eatery
  • A French West African Café
  • A neighborhood bakery
  • An amazing tea and spice shop

All tastings are included in your ticket price. For most guests, enough food is served that a meal afterwards is not needed. You will also be given a bottle of water per person at the start of the tour.

Do not eat before the tour. You will be eating a lot of food!

Loved the food and historic tour

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.

Hello Aileen, Sorry for the delay with my reply. I am just now seeing your message. The issues we had at that time all happen on the same day and it was not a typical tour date. Please consider us on a future visit to NYC.
