Tour Type
A private tour to spend our Sunday Morning exploring the unique and historic neighborhood of Harlem. We will walk around admiring the enchanting and elegant corners of Sugar Hill, the legendary Apollo Theater, and the oldest public college in NYC. We will conclude our time together with one of the most moving experiences that New York City has to offer - The Gospel Choir during an authentic Sunday Service.

The Gospel Song – Where does this tradition come from?

We will have the chance to testify to the true, sheer power of the Gospel song while attending Sunday Service in a local Church in Harlem. The Gospels are hymns and Christian songs about God, Jesus, and the Good News sung by the Church Choir. The Gospel characterizes Mass Service, especially in Baptist Churches, and it's often associated with the African-American culture. The size of the choir may vary from a few singers to a few dozens, the sheer power will mesmerize you nonetheless.

Depending on Service Schedule, we will enjoy our walking tour of Harlem before or after service. Be ready to spend your morning in Harlem with your local Tour Guide discovering the incredible history of the iconic neighborhood.

Attending a Harlem Gospel Church

Attending a Sunday Gospel Service in a local Harlem Church means attending a religious function. Please remember that these local churches are the place of worship of devoted congregations. Visitors should keep in mind that Sunday Service is a Holy Mass and it is not "a musical show"
  • please note that the Sunday Service can last approx 2 hour. Only half of it (or less) will be sung by the Choir
  • please note that adequate attire is required to attend Church (no shorts, tank tops, or flip-flops)
  • please be respectful to others; this is a live Mass (this is not a show)

Harlem and its history

Did you know that Harlem was first established as a village by the Dutch in 1658? Yes, It was a small Dutch county town named after the city of Haarlem in the Netherlands. We will learn the history of this neighborhood going back in time to those first Dutch years to today.

Harlem is considered as one of the most important neighborhoods in the preservation of African-American culture and history. Many civil rights movements were born in the streets of Harlem, and we will revisit some of the most iconic moments in time. Depending on the Itinerary the guide will create for you, you will have the chance to visit the historic district of Mount Morris or Sugar Hill with some of the most beautiful and elegant townhouses in NYC, walk along Astor Row or Strivers' Row, admire iconic landmarks like the Apollo Theater and the former Theresa Hotel, and more.

Tailoring your Harlem Tour Itinerary

Please note that there is so much to do and see in Harlem and the neighborhood is quite spread out that we won't be able to do everything in just one morning. Especially considering that at least couple of hours are required to reach the Church and assist at the Sunday Service. Your Tour Guide will suggest some of the most important landmarks and places you can visit before or after Service also based on your Hotel location and/or agreed upon departure point. Together, you will create a unique itinerary around Harlem that works for you.
