“I am a PreK teacher at a public elementary school in Harlem. Mr. Joe took our class on a community walk in our neighborhood and showed my kids the history of buildings that they see everyday as they walk to school, but never knew how many stories they had to tell. We learned all about how certain buildings used to be theaters and grand apartments before becoming churches and the storefronts that we see today. Mr. Joe was very engaged with the kids and they had such a fun time looking at pictures of building as they were in the 1940's and seeing what was there now in front of them. It was such a fantastic trip and I cannot wait to go on another one with Mr. Joe!.”

“Woooowwww We had 4 days full power with Jojo in New York as our tour guide. Everything was well planned and we learned a lot of background knowledge from him. We can highly recommend him to you. If you want your authentic tour in the USA you have to book him. Thank you for everything.Kathrin.”

4 day Tour
“I had booked the tour for a school party from the UK. Joseph was brilliant at pitching the detail of the tour around Harlem at the age of the pupils and explained the legacy of its history with really impressive enthusiasm. I was delighted that both the pupils and I learned a great deal from the tour which I would highly recommend.”
