Our tour guide Mahalia was very informative and very passionate about the history of the area it was impressive. Well what can I about the Gospel tour it was just like being in the movie Sister Act. The Pastor a little 89 year old man giving thanks to the Lord hat they have their church.Which started out as an addiction reform center but they need to pay the mortgage of the church so they started their choir. It gave us Goose bumps then we were invited up with the choir in front of the congregation to join in with the Song OH Happy Days. WOW it was so uplifting and inspiring.

Then we went to Sylvia's Soul Food for lunch and again what can I say. Sitting in a quaint restaurant with a gallery of pictures of famous people thanking Sylvia for her fine food . The likes of Sidney Poitier, Obama, the temptations and Bill Clinton among many more. We ate corn bread, cat fish, southern fried chicken, collard greens and so much more.YUM . Definitely recommend this tour

I am so happy that we did the Gospel Tour. The bus tour itself was very interesting and informative. We had a terrific guide. The service in the Church was amazing. Fabulous choir and most choir members also sang solo. Found it very inspirational. I recommend it to anyone travelling to New York - don't miss it!!

This was a great day which was made easy as everything was so well organised. The singing was absolutely excellent - they were all so very talented. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the CD. It was something different from the usual tourist attractions and it was great to see people who had struggled with addictions pick their lives up through the music and singing. Thank you for a unique day!

Outstanding! One of the best experiences in my life: singing "Oh, happy day" in that church all together. If you like music, if you.'d like to know more about Harlem, if you want to meet interesting people , don't miss this great opportunity. I came back lighter and happier. Mahalia was great!

This is my second time to NYC and my second time on this tour w/lunch. This tour is a must do when you are in NYC and don't be cheap, do lunch at Sylvia's. The tour guide was good, he related some of his life experiences in NYC/Harlem to us while on the tour, we were able to get out and stretch at a few spots and received alot of information. Again, this is a must-do in NYC, I recommend it to everyone. Finding the location of the bus/tickets/registration was very smooth and easy. Enjoy!

Loved this but suggest that if you are going to do it, embrace it and don't just be a tourist! I sat amongst the locals and had a great time.

We went on the Harlem morning gospel tour. it was such an interesting tour. We were taken around Harlem looking at different places like the local muiseum and the Apollo theatre. We then went to the church where the choir sang there were a school group that had come from another part of the state and they also joined in. We were then taken to Sylvias resturant where we all enjoyed a meal of soul food. This tour was very interesting and well worth the money.

The guide makes the tour. Our guide was extremely good. Very knowledgable and entertaining. The tour was a success before we even arrived at the church. The Gospel experience was a bonus.
