Fantastic morning, loved all of it, bus ride through Harlem and surrounding ares was great. gospel singers had everyone standing and clapping. Would recommend this tour to all.
One of our highlights. An uplifting experience that not many people would get to see.
The tour was fantastic. Well organized and informative. Loved it. Thank you.
As native New Yorkers, my husband and I would never have thought to tour Harlem, but our Italian relatives insisted. What a wonderful experience! From the efficient ladies at the tour office, to the comfortable bus to the entertaining and knowledgeable tour guide, it was great! We toured places we had only heard of: The Apollo Theater, City College, the lovely homes which depict the Harlem revitalization and renaissance and the final stop: sensational Gospel music with amazing heavenly voices. I highly recommend this tour whether you are a tourist or born and bred New Yorker. Don't miss this!
Excellent tour ---our guide was fabulous--you are lucky to have her
church experience was wonderful
Really good, very good guide and a lot of informations; the gospel was amazing
I've done this tour before and it didnt let me down the second time. Well organised and a wonderful day. We had lunch at Sylvia's which was definitely worth it.
This was the highlight of our trip. The tour was pretty average but the gospel choir was inspiring and soul food was amazing.
If you are unsure of whether to do this or not, just book it!
Brilliant - no other words would describe this. Loved every minute of the tour, great guide and the music from the church was awesome. Tourist participation was also another plus. Would totally recommend this tour
Overall, a fantastic tour and well worth the money.
Specifically, the chaos at the meeting point populated by people barking orders (and even getting angry at those of us who either didn't comprehend their convoluted instructions, or understand their accent, or language) makes one want to walk away. Surely a simpler system could be implemented, and people employed to make us tourists feel welcome.
The guide was lovely, entertaining, and informative.
The highlight was the gospel singing - what a TREAT! The church was totally packed with tourists - sadly some didn't care much about those behind as they stood up for long periods to take videos. My tip: go in late when the seats are full - then stand along a wall where the view is clear.
It was worth coming to New York just to do this tour. Amazing singers and Harlem was nothing like I expected. The lunch at Sylvia's was delicious and after seeing it on Masterchef, couldn't wait to visit.
Wonderful look at the areas you might not be comfortable going to alone, with plenty of history along the way. The Gospel singing was really good to watch, definitely the highlight.
We thoroughly enjoyed our Harlem Gospel Tour experience. Alvin was a fantastic guide, with humourous and insightful commentary. Sylvia's was a real treat - especially since it had featured on Australia's MasterChef.
Loved this tour. Very spiritual and our guide Shiela was very informative. Enjoyed the soul food at the restaurant on the completion of the tour. Would recommend you take the lunch option.
We had no idea how beautiful Harlem is. It completely destroyed the stereotype that we had before we saw the stunning architecture and parks. The Gospel service was fantastic and lunch was delicious! This was one of our favourite New York experiences.
Every part of it was fabulous:The tour guide, the tour, the history of Harlem and of course the gospel choir and lunch.

A very knowledgeable guide. Slightly repititious views of Harlem. Magnificent gospel singing. Would do justice in an Opera House.
