"Thank you for the fascinating and well-researched tour. My family and I enjoyed it enormously."
"I went today an had a lovely time, super interesting and informative! definitely would recommend."
"This was such an excellent tour! Thank you Katie for sharing your knowledge and making it fun and interesting. [My partner] will never look at Harlem the same. Very well organized and well-researched. Highly recommend!"
"This tour was AMAZING. The history of Muslims in NYC and Harlem is much richer and more varied than you'd expect, and Katie not only gives you a vivid sense of that history but also shows you how that history remains surprisingly alive in Harlem today. Highly recommended."
"The tour today was amazing. It was fun, insightful and it taught me things I didn't know about our history right here in NYC. Katie was a superb guide and even though it was drizzling, she made it really fun that the rain didn't seem to be a bother to any of us. Big shout out to Katie for putting this together."
"One of the best walking tours I've been on in NY and globally. The tour takes you on temporary visits to different periods of NYC history, immigration history, religious, cultural and political history among others. It is all connected to neighborhood dynamics, with audio recordings, visuals, and planned/unexpected conversations. Looking forward to joining again in Harlem or other NYC neighborhoods!"
"This morning's tour was a fascinating historical journey through Harlem's rich Islamic history and its cultural institutions--both standing and those since lost to development. I highly recommend checking this out!"
"If you're in NY you have to go on this tour. Muslims or not!"
"Inspiring scholarship in action by Katie Merriman. Follow her lead folks!"
