With the Harlem Private Tour, we will spend Sunday Morning exploring the iconic neighborhood of Harlem with the famous Apollo Theater, the former Theresa Hotel, Striver's Row and much more, plus we will take you to an Authentic Local Church where will embark on a spiritual Journey listening to the Gospel Music.

Visit Harlem & The Power of The Gospel Music

A visit to Harlem wouldn't be complete without experiencing one of the most important and unique things we can find in this area, the glue that keeps each community together  – Sunday Service with the Gospel.

Before or after our private sightseeing tour (depending on the Church Schedule), we will visit a local Church to assist at a Live Mass Service. With this tour, you will be able to join us in experiencing the amazing and moving talent of a Gospel Choir. We have been conducting Harlem Tours for over 15+ years and the sheer power of the Gospel never seize to amaze us.

Harlem has indeed so much to offer. Many mistake it for a tiny-tiny part of Manhattan but it's quite the contrary. Harlem extends from 110th Street (West to East) all the way north to 135th Street. And although technically, the neighborhoods of Hamilton Heights (Sugar Hill), Washington Heights and Inwood are separate neighborhoods from Harlem, they are indeed all bound by the same cultural and historical heritage which makes them part of "Harlem" if not by boundaries at least socially, culturally and historically

As this is a bespoke tour that includes one of our chauffeured vehicles + private tour guide, we will be able to select the highlights of Harlem you would like to visit as part of the tour.

Irene was a FANTASTIC tour guide! She was so knowledgeable about the area and was so patient with all our questions. We stopped to use the bathroom and we got coffee halfway through, she was so kind! It was a pleasure learning about Brooklyn from you!
