Harlem Heritage Tours

Harlem Heritage Tours Harlem Heritage Tours, the official provider of sightseeing tours in Harlem. All tours are conducted by native Harlem residents, born and raised in Harlem.
Neal Shoemaker started Harlem Heritage Tours in 1998 with the intention of exposing the truth about the culture of Harlem. The seeds of change had been planted decades before, but it seemed that during the late 1990's is when change started to become visible in the form of constant construction along blocks in Harlem that were long neglected. It was at this time that Harlem Heritage Tours was born and all wanted, and still request authentic experiences when they travel to Harlem. We have hosted people from all over world with the constant goal of providing guests with experiences that reflect the best of Harlem's past and future. Nothing is more thrilling than creating and providing experiences that transport our guests back into Harlem yesteryears. Over the last 14 years we have experienced the initial anticipation of what's to come and the fear that Harlem's heritage will be lost. As time passes what we are seeing is that there is a growing movement focused on preserving and capitalizing on Harlem's heritage. In 2007 we opened the Harlem Heritage Tourism and Cultural Center with the sole purpose of celebrating Harlem's history.
