More Details

Harlem on A Sunday is an experience not to be missed!
Learn about the neighborhood’s origins as a rural Dutch community to its transformation into a summer retreat for New York's most prominent families. Explore the significance of the Harlem Renaissance, a social, intellectual and cultural revolution that cemented Harlem's status as the epicenter of Black culture. During this golden age, African-Americans leaving the South for better opportunities flourished as a community. Hear about Harlem's troubled past during the 1960's and 1970's and experience its present-day community beam with pride as it revels in Harlem’s new Renaissance.

Explore famous sights and landmarks such as Columbia University, City College, Morningside Heights, the Morris Jumel Mansion, Sylvan Terrace, Strivers Row, the Cotton Club, the Apollo Theater, the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, Sugar Hill, Duke Ellington's apartment and statue, the famous 125th street and many more.

Join a local congregation during their Sunday worship service and experience the soul-stirring power of gospel music.

*We spend about 1 hour at the church for the beginning of the service often referred to as song and praise. We exit before the sermon so as not to disrupt the congregation. Choirs are comprised of church members that volunteer their time. Every Sunday has a different meaning and choirs vary accordingly. These are authentic religious ceremonies services not performances for entertainment.

*We attend local church services in Harlem or in the Bronx. For the past 30 years, Harlem Spirituals has developed relationships and followed with many congregations and choirs. For this reason, church services may also take place in the Bronx. This in no way affects the content or timing of our tour.

If you are not available on Sunday, come and join us on our Harlem Gospel tour on Wednesday!

Super expérience avec un guide captivant et une cérémonie grandiose. Seul bémol, l’affluence à mon goût trop importante de visiteurs qui ne respectent pas forcément la messe et dénaturent tout avec leur perches, vidéos, bruits etc.... il serait peut être bon de limiter un peu le nombre de places ou de multiplier le nombre d’eglises...

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Anthony & Harlem Spirituals. Anthony was very professional and very informative. He has a real passion for Harlem and it’s history. The bus was very comfortable and the driver was also very professional and nice. We would recommend Harlem Spirituals to anyone wanted to do a fantastic and informative tour of Harlem and wanting to see some amazing gospel singers. Thanks Anthony we loved learning so much from you. Belinda & Hollie From Australia

The tour was great! Our guide was Alvin and he is the one who made it special. He was incredibly friendly, informative and knowledgeable. He is a gem! The gospel music was lovely also. It was a fabulous overview of the rich history of Harlem.

The tour was FANTASTIC! I even brought my cousin who has lived in Manhattan most of his adult life & he kept saying ‘I never knew that’! The tour guide (anthony) was so full of information, very energetic - u could tell it was a passion of his! The only reason this tour didn’t get a 5 was because i’ve heard much better gospel music &a was hoping for some premium singing as that was the main reason I was going! Even so, I did enjoy the tour!
