What You Can Expect
Visit the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture for a glimpse into this research library’s impressive collection of materials and artifacts documenting African culture around the world.
Continue on to a local church to take part in an inspiring morning service featuring the soul-stirring vocals of the ARC gospel choir. This community choir helps support the drug treatment services of the Addicts Rehabilitation Center, New York State’s oldest drug-free recovery program.
If you select the lunch upgrade, enjoy a delicious meal after the gospel service at Sylvia’s restaurant. Founded by the ‘queen of soul food,’ this Harlem institution dishes up beloved southern-inspired specialties like fried chicken, spicy ribs, collard greens and cornbread.
At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off back at the original departure point in the afternoon.
Tour and music were wonderful. Upper Manhattan has so much going on. Highly recommend all ages.

What a joyful, inspiring, experience. Just heavenly.
Brunch at Sylvia's, was Soul Food at its best.
Very Enjoyable tour. Lunch was awesome.
The trip was exactly as described and more. The guide on our bus was very informative, we saw quite a bit of Harlem, and the church people were very welcoming. I would recommend the tour.
This tour is great if you want to experience gospel music but do not have a lot of time. I only had three days in New York and wanted to rake in as much as possible.
The guide was professional and have us a lot of background information. We also saw different areas as we drove through.
Fantastic experience. Highlight of our trip to NY. Voices of the gospel choir were magnificent.
This was a great tour, may daughter and I had a fun time and would recommend it to all ages
The choir was fantastic.
Absolutely fabulous tour - I would highly recommend it along with the 'soul food' lunch option!!
This tour was amazing!
