This was a four hour bus tour of Harlem. The guide was very good and provided us with very interesting historic, cultural and architectural information. We also went to fascinating church in the Bronx where we experienced the lively and passionate gospel prayers.

The church was neo charismatic so everything was noise and a mess. It was a small church and they didn’t tell us before the tour. I don’t recommend this tour. There are other churches better to visit

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 .
