    The tour was okay but I think I would not book it again. We only ride the bus to the Gospel Church with a really really short stop at the Apollo Theatre. There was NO walking tour of residential sections as told! Also I expected a Gospel Choir but I think that was my fault. At the gospel church of course were gospel singers but the instruments have been so loud that the charme of the gospel singers got lost - but I think I had a wrong imagination

    This was a fun Sunday morning. Our tour guide unfortunately I can't remember his name was terrific and even had the entire bus singing along with him to Frank Sinatra tunes. We enjoyed the tour of Harlem and the visit to the church gave us a good glimpse of gospel singing. The people at the church were most welcoming and friendly... I am not a church goer but this experience was very nice. I would recommend this tour.

    The singing and the service was not very professional, but the sincerity of the people made up for it. Totally enjoyed the service and being with such beautiful people that were so sincere in their faith.
