The Power of The Gospels
A visit to Harlem wouldn't be complete without experiencing one of the most important things we can find in this area, the glue that keeps each community together --Sunday Service with the Gospel
Before or after our 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 conducting Harlem Tours for over 10 years and the sheer power of the Gospel never seize to amaze us.

Whether you are traveling to New York City with just your family and a few friends, or perhaps you are a medium-to-large group coming from over-sea, with a Private Tour we can tailor the experience to your specific needs and you are in for a treat.
After you have selected your date and booked this Experience, we will match you with one of our talented Tour Guides, so together you can start tailoring the Itinerary.
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
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.
These are some of the most important areas
we could visit together, and you will get to choose which ones.
1) Inwood with Fort Tryon and The Cloisters (only exterior) from where we can admire the beautiful Palisades of New Jersey and the beginning of the Hudson Valley.
2) Washington Heights with the glorious Morris-Jumel Mansion.
3) Sugar Hill (Hamilton Heights) with its elegant Townhouses, the City College of NY, and The Hamilton Grange National Memorial (only exterior).
4) Striver's Row with its unique architectural styles that change block by block.
5) Central Harlem with the iconic Apollo Theater, the main commercial street 125th Street and the former Theresa Hotel.
6) The West Side with the prestigious Columbia University, General Grant National Memorial and Riverside Church.
7) Mount Morris Historic District, another elegant neighborhood famous for its former Synagogues now turned Churches, elegant Tree-lined streets, and the unique Astor Row.
As you can see it's an extensive list of places and attractions
, and there are so many things we can see together in Harlem
, and thanks to this private tour we can make sure we cover the areas that most interest you.
