This was a great tour and well worth the money. We drove round Harlem, met The Great Franco artist who sells his work and paints all Harlem's shop fronts whilst stopping at the Apollo and also did some walking. The highlight, however, was the church visit. It was like being in Sister Act! Quite a surreal experience and the congregation were welcoming. Ellen, our host, was fabulous and very knowledgeable. I would urge anyone to do this tour.
Our guide was terrific! He was fun and knowlegeable. He gave a comprehensive history and timely information. Would love to go on more tours with him.
The tour was so well organized and our guide was so knowledgeable about Harlem and New York in general, a TRUE NEW YORKER! The church service was wonderful and the lunch and show at the Cotton Club was amazing with more gospel music. The singer and band had the whole place rocking!
It was a great day.
Our tour of about 40 guests, led by Glenn, was excellent. It was interesting that we were the only Americans on the trip, it was enlightening and taught us a great deal about the neighborhood. Glenn was terrific - informative and enthusiastic. I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Excellent tour, really enjoyed it. Well worth doing the brunch also, that was a highlight, the soul food
Fabulous time, better than expected. Duane was our leader and he was just delightful.
Also, BTW one of my friends knew someone who went on a different Gospel tour, and they spent 4 hours in the church.... This tour with Duane was perfect, we toured around Harlem and NYC and then had a fabulous ONE hour at the church. The church members made everyone feel so welcome, I am thinking of becoming a Baptist!
This was a very memorable and moving tour, our guide was a great character. The Congregation at the church were so warm and welcoming,it was quite a fantastic experience.We had lunch at the Cotton club where we ate traditional soul food and were entertained by jazz and soul band and vocalist.Make this a must do tour.Chris and Steve H
This tour exceeded our expectations at every turn. Sheila our guide was knowledgeable, witty and charismatic. Her commentary on the rich and diverse history of Harlem was extremely informative and insightful. The highlight was being able to attend Sunday service in a small neighborhood church, a truly uplifting experience and one we will never forget.
Such a beautiful and awe inspiring tour!! Our guide was knowledgable and fun, the entire tour was beyond what I could have expected. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting New York. So grateful I got to join and witness this.
The experience was fun and enjoyable, recommend this for everyone.
Excellent tour. Guide was very knowledgeable. Church was amazing. Would have preferred the tour to have been shorter with more time at church but wouldn't put me off doing it again.
This tour was great as we explored Harlem. Our tour guide was full of information . Church service was an experience, one never to forget. A great experience for all ages,
This was a great experience. We had an excellent guide and learn much about the history of Harlem. We even had an opportunity to visit one of the local churches to hear a gospel choir. It was comfortable and timely. We would do it again when in New York!

A wonderful experience we were made to feel very welcome by the church. Our tour guide was very professional and very knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend this trip.
Had a great time on this one ,Have to do brunch great band at Cotton Club and food.
Perfect Sunday Morning! We had full coach of 50 guests. All guides have charisma and fantastic sense of humor! Our tour took us to Bronx instead of Harlem but Church we visited was large and they welcomed us with open arms! None minded to go to Bronx instead of Harlem even we drove through Harlem which was obviously packed with some street fair.
Our guide was very interesting. Church and people were nice. We recommand
George and Alan were really great people and a good team to get out from NYC traffic!
People were so amazing, nice and friendly with us. I've never expect such warm welcome.
Thanks again viator for this. Worth every dollar.
My clients loved this tour. Every thing about it was perfect! They were met promptly and enjoyed the day. I can't rave enough about this tour. My clients were staying in Philadelphia and went to NYC for the day and just for this tour....it was the highlight of their trip!!!!
The tour guide Sheila gave us all a fabulous histort and insight in New York in general and Haarlem in great detail
Duane on the return trip also did an excellent job. The Gospel choir were fabulous and really welcoming
The Cotton Club experience was memorable for the great singing/entertainment but not for the buffet food.
