We took the Sunday morning Harlem Gospel tour, and were so lucky to have Anthony as a Guide. A native New Yorker with a degree in US history and a detailed knowledge of the streets in and around New York, Anthony fills our trip with...More

The tour guide and bus driver were great. The information given as the bus was passing areas was most informative. The church service wasn't what I had expected, having done a couple in other cities in the south. It was hard to hear people using...More

We went to the Cotton Club on a Monday Night Tour with Harlem Spiritual. We have no problem with Harlem Spirituals,but the Cotton Club was a big disappointment. The rest of the tour was great.

We had a great time. Our tour guide, Anthony, was so knowledgeable. We only wish we would have done this tour first as he had such good tips for getting around the city.

Sorry I just saw this. The Sunday tour joined a regular Sunday church service. There was a sermon with local people attending the service. Was great to be part of that .
