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..
we thoroughly enjoyed this tour some blogs i had read it was a real tourist thing and not so authentic, but we found the singers amazing and there interaction with us was amazing it might not be a sunday service but they give it all there got
It's a different way of celebrating God, with full of happiness.
Our guide knows so much about the theme.
There were many options of language. Included portuguese.
Excellent tour would recommend it to anyone. Interesting parts of harlem I could not have seen on our own. The gospel was outstanding.
Absolutely fantastic morning spent in the company of Sheila E. Harlem was beautiful on this sunny September day and Sheila was very knowledgable. Learned lots about the history of Harlem. The gospel choir was fabulous, uplifting and good for the soul.
The morning tour and lunch were well organised and great. Some aspects of the Church visit struck me as 'tacky' but the music was really good.
This was our only guided tour in NYC. Tour guide was very friendly and grew up in Harlem so knew the area. In the bus you drive around different areas and you stop a few times to take brief walks. There are some very beautiful homes in Harlem. Ends with a one-hour visit to a church where you hear very brief "sermons" and listen to some amazing singers who are all recovering addicts. It was really an emotional experience if you like that kind of stuff. On the way back to the centre you got to pick where you wanted to be dropped off.
