Harlem Gospel Wednesday Afternoon Tour

Spend an afternoon discovering Harlem on this guided, 4-hour tour.

The tour, narrated in two languages (English and German or Italian and Spanish), will include stops at Sugar Hill, Morningside Heights, the Apollo Theater, Sylvan Terrace, and other relevant points of the fabled neighborhood. Finally, visit a Church and attend a true gospel mass.

    Our guide was great - we were able to really take advantage of the sights despite a torrential down pour! We toured Columbia University, saw some beautiful churches, stopped to see the brownstones and pose at Maya Angelou's former home, checked out some Hamilton, Washington and Burr haunts. My only complaint was the gospel choir portion- very little music our night and the pastor focused on allowing 2 members of congregation discuss how they became saved. 1 actually converted from Islam and her condemnation of her prior religion and description of her miserable existence before claiming Christianity was a bit uncomfortable as the majority of the audience were tourists as was the repetitive attempts to get the audience to come forward and seek to be born again

    We're from Australia and we took the tour mid Dec 2017. We really wanted to see Harlem, and the only day we had available was for the Wednesday afternoon tour. Due to the time of year, after an hour or so, it became dark, so it was difficult to get a really good view of everything. We were a family of four adults on the tour, so it was quite expensive for all of us. Fortunately, we had our guide to ourselves, and she was very pleasant and articulate, no complaints there. In regard to the actual church service and singing, the congregation was very welcoming of us, however their attendance was low. In my opinion we had to sit through it for too long as the singing was more like chanting and quite repetitious. The highlight of the tour was visiting the gardens of Columbia University, despite it being dark. Overall, we were glad we did the tour as it gave us a bigger perspective of Manhattan than we had had previously.
