This evolved into a hearty and delicious comfort food styled cuisine.

After the lunch, guests will escorted back to our offices, located in the Times Square area. They can also choose to remain in Harlem to explore the neighborhood on return their own. Tip* 125th street offers some great shopping options.

The Guide Ulrich was very good : nice presentation, good person. The lunch was very nice. However the house of Alexender Hamilton was closed : that's a miss in the organisation.

Great Time

The ticket collection from the office was carried out with great efficiency and politeness. Anthony is a most informative and entertaining guide who made the tour of Harlem both interesting and amusing. The service with the ARC Choir was amazing! They really enjoy their faith and the invitation to join them to sing "O Happy Day" was one I accepted with great pleasure. The meal at Sylvia's was the first time I had eaten soul food and I enjoyed it very much. All in all, an excellent tour and good value for money

Wonderful Experience
Posted 2018-12-08

The Harlem Gospel Tour was a wonderful experience. The tour was well organized and informative. I had the pleasure of being on a bus with English and Italian speakers, thus our local guide gave the tour in both languages, which was fun. The highlight, of course, was the Gospel Hour of Power! It was so moving and heartfelt. It touched my soul and I will keep this memory always with me. The lunch was delicious! This was the best gift I could have ever given myself!

Dopo aver girato per circa due ore ad Harlem,( mi sentivo una comparsa in uno dei tanti film girati in questo magnifico posto)sono entrato in una chiesa,sedendomi tra gli ultimi banchi insieme ad altra gente. Una sensazione fantastica e piena di calore umano,cosa che nelle nostre chiese non avviene. Bellissimo ed emozionante

Il fascino del gospel vero
Posted 2013-07-01

Girare per Harlem ti fa sentire parte di un sogno, di migliaia di film e telefilm, ti sentì parte di un mondo forse difficile ma di un fascino unico. Sono capitato in diverse chiese secondarie rispetto alla più nota, ma vi assicuro che ho sentito i brividi per tutta la messa e la partecipazione dei fedeli principalmente di colore... Suoni e movimenti che solo loro sanno fare e per questo impossibile da non vedere.

Imprescindible asistir a una misa gospel
Posted 2011-12-14

Sorprendente por su hospitalidad, y por como viven la religión, asistir a una misa gospel en cualquiera de las diferentes iglesias de Harlem será una experiencia inolvidable.

Me gustó mucho
Posted 2015-10-13

Contraté ésta excursión que incluía además un recorrido por Harlem. Y no me arrepiento. Antes de entrar a la Iglesia pasamos por el Teatro Apollo y recorrimos algunos barrios del Harlem. Además de conocer la Morris- Jumel Mansión y un hermoso parque detrás, ése recorrido lo hicimos caminando y fue muy interesante. El coro me encantó, es muy estridente y entusiasta. El guía hablaba español e italiano, e hizo la excursión muy amena.

Dear Matiasav, Thank you for selecting Harlem Spirituals / New York Visions tours. We appreciate your kind words and are happy that you enjoyed our Harlem Gospel tour. Best wishes, Erika Elisabeth Vice president

En choisissant ce prestataire, nous avons pu découvrir NYC de façon différente, confortable avec une guide francophone, sympa, dans un bus agréable et visiter des lieux emblématiques de ce quartier de NY. L'Appolo, participer à une messe gospel, apercevoir le yankee Stadium, visiter des endroits atypiques dans un environnement agréable.
