We did the Sunday service 18 months ago, so we selected the Wednesday tour this time. We loved BOTH. My partner preferred the Sunday service, while I just LOVED the Wednesday one as it had songs I knew and could join in, and no I am NOT a deeply spiritual person, but I love the Harlem Gospel music and the energy and joy those people have ... Praise the lord and Hallelujia folks, miss this and you are missing a part of America.
Very knowledgeable guide and excellent driver, comfortable bus. Fantastic concert, enjoyed it very much.
Our guide was a wealth of information. Loved the gospel singers and the lunch was fun to share with pleasant strangers from 3 different continents.
Not the small intimate trip I was expecting but a very enjoyable and uplifting experience. Highly recommended.
A great 4 hour trip that showed Harlem in a new light. Great bus, 5 star guide and a driver with a magical Gospel service, do it!!!
Our guide was what made this experience so good. She was fantastic - a nice lady from Alabama. She sure knows her stuff and was superb! The music was great too. I recommend this trip.
Our guide made many thought provoking comments during the tour and was very knowledgeable about the area and its history. The coach was comfortable and air-conditioned which was needed in July! As we were the last tour group to arrive at the church for the service our seats did not have a great view, however we moved upstairs which was much better. Being able to join in with the choir at the final hymn was a marvellous experience.
The only thing that I regret was that it wasn't possible to make any pictures.
A nice tour through harlem, with some nice stops. The Gospel Choir was very good and we enjoyed it. The tour may include more walking in my point of view.
A very informative and interesting tour. Gospel singing beautiful and uplifting - great to be invited to sing along. Lunch at Sylvia's very nice.
Fantastic, the church visit was awesome. Waste of time going to the brunch, plenty of food but as we changed bus to have this component of the tour we had a change in guide, she left us all standing out on the street for quite some time and some of the tour people very nearly got on the wrong bus, I had to run into the restaurant and ask her if this was the correct bus
I guess it wasnt what I expected as I had read a book on how it all started but still a must to see and the convience of viators bookings made it so much easier
The first part of the tour is 2 hours but could easily be condensed down to 1 hour really if a bit more structured and focussed. However, worth sticking with it as the church/gospel choir was excellent, really uplifting (even though I don't really have any faith). Lunch at Sylvia's also excellent.
An interesting and fun few hours. A trip through Harlem - which has some beautiful tree lined streets and lovely old buildings. George Washington's original residence and the City College. The ARC choir is talented and engaging and lunch at Sylvia's yummy!
We thoroughly enjoyed the gospel choir.. It was one of the highlights of our New York visit..
