What You Can Expect

Harlem Wednesday-Morning Gospel Tour

Harlem Wednesday-Morning Gospel Tour

Spend a morning immersed in the rich and eclectic culture of Harlem. Meet your guide near Times Square in the morning and board a comfortable coach for the drive north to Harlem. Admire the stately homes and historic buildings of Strivers Row and Sylvan Terrace, and cruise by musical landmarks like the Apollo Theater, which has hosted some of the hottest names in jazz and R&B throughout the decades.
Visit the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture for a glimpse into this research library’s impressive collection of materials and artifacts documenting African culture around the world.
Continue on to a local church to take part in an inspiring morning service featuring the soul-stirring vocals of the ARC gospel choir. This community choir helps support the drug treatment services of the Addicts Rehabilitation Center, New York State’s oldest drug-free recovery program.
If you select the lunch upgrade, enjoy a delicious meal after the gospel service at Sylvia’s restaurant. Founded by the ‘queen of soul food,’ this Harlem institution dishes up beloved southern-inspired specialties like fried chicken, spicy ribs, collard greens and cornbread.
At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off back at the original departure point in the afternoon.

AMAZING. it was very special to me also because my Mum passed away the day prior to our Tour and the Minister 90, blind and a real character and his friend/guide were very kind. My husband was smiling, swaying and clapping, something I thought I'd never see him do in a Church. The local people were very welcoming. A memory that will stay with me forever.

The trip was exactly as described and more. The guide on our bus was very informative, we saw quite a bit of Harlem, and the church people were very welcoming. I would recommend the tour.

This tour is great if you want to experience gospel music but do not have a lot of time. I only had three days in New York and wanted to rake in as much as possible.
The guide was professional and have us a lot of background information. We also saw different areas as we drove through.
