What a fantastic tour this was. Was nearly up singing and dancing with the singers!!! A must if you like gospel. This was the only tour that did not have our details that we had pre booked but lucky they had room for us. We took the lunch package which we thoroughly enjoyed. We were well looked after.

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.

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.

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.
My husband and I enjoyed our tour of Harlem, but were disappointed that one of the advertised Highlighted stops Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture was not included. This should be taken off the web-site, if it is not included. The ARC Gospel singers were wonderful and very uplifting. They were the HIGHLIGHT of the tour.
I would recommend this tour.
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
