The tour begins on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. First up, the lavish Plaza Hotel, notorious for its high-profile visitors and residents - including Eloise, the famous children’s book character! A short ride away is magnificent Central Park. Did you know the park is mostly man-made? It was completed in 1876 and it's now renowned worldwide for its beautiful lakes and greenery stretching over 800 acres. As you travel through the park, you'll visit Strawberry Fields for a Beatles sing-along and explore various other sites rarely seen by tourists!
Next, you'll make your way to Harlem, one of the most important places for black history in America. Here, you'll attend part of an authentic Sunday morning gospel service and hear all about the neighborhood's history and famous residents. Don't worry, you'll also have time to stop for a quick lunch break and try some delicious Soul Food.
