    Tour guide was great. But we were there on the Wednesday after new year and I don’t think they had the whole singing group there. They didn’t do what the guide said they were going to do at the end. It al ended rather suddenly. A bit disappointing.

    Interesting tour. Enjoyable but being translated so many times was annoying. Otherwise the tour guide was very helpful.

    A good experience but I felt it was a bit orchestrated and therefore didn't feel real to me. The choir was very good. I also went to the lunch but as I was the only English speaker in the group at my lunch table because several coach loads had been combined for the lunch I felt quite unwelcome which was uncomfortable.

    What a fun and learning tour. Tour Harlem and seeing the change in that part of Manhatten. The Gospel singers are amazing, you learn music, cultural differences and how people overcome adversity. I took the optional Sylvia's restaurant and glad I did. The food was fabulous...it was like eating at my Southern Grandmother's home! Great down home cooking. Highly recommend this tour.
