Overview

Get to know the history, heritage and soul of Harlem, the legendary neighborhood known internationally as the Black Mecca of the world. This explosion of cultural pride, defined as Harlem Renaissance derives its roots in 1890, when African Americans after enduring centuries of slavery and the struggle for abolition - migrated to the North in great numbers, and relocated from the rural South to the urban North.

    Anche per questo giro, come per quello di Bronx e Queens, avevamo come guida il simpatico e preparatissimo Andrea, che ci ha portato alla scoperta di altri aspetti di una N.Y. autentica e singolare, vista da noi solo nei film. Il tour seppure concentrato in una mattinata è stato pregno e interessantissimo. La bellissima cattedrale the Divine, vista purtroppo solo dall’esterno, con la caratteristica di avere una sola torre. La Columbus University, un complesso grandissimo e curato che profuma di storia; il teatro Apollo, trampolino di lancio per tanti artisti, divenuti poi famosissimi, poi la messa gospel, ad Harlem, un pezzo autentico e colorato del ns. tour. Abbiamo partecipato alla funzione fra canti ed emozionanti momenti, che ci hanno reso partecipi di un frammento di normale vita quotidiana, come se fossimo parte del contesto. Bellissimo! Un'esperienza indimenticabile, da provare.

    guida Enrico bravissimo che ci ha raccontato molti aneddoti della vita dei grandi della musica rock americana. ci ha condotti nella chiesa in Harlem e chi ha consigliato come comportarci per evitare di infastidire la comunità. bellissima esperienza che ti prende in pieno; da non perdere. il martedì successivo abbiamo effettuato il tour da nord a sud di Manahattan con la guida Sergio anche lui molto in gamba e professionale. Esperto della città e molto disponibile.

    We had our Harlem Gospel Sunday Tour in German with guide Ulli. She was very competent and polite she explained the attractions in an interesting way. Her knowledge about New York beside the sightseeing attractions was also very revealing. The participatopn in the service was an experience that we had not yet known in this form, We recommend this tour without restrictions.

    Enjoyable tour, well led by John, topped off with a joyous service at the Friendly Baptist Church. Visited St John the Divine church, Columbia University, Sylvan Terrace (20 three story historic wooden houses), Morris Jumel mansion and Apollo Theatre. Highlight was the gospel service with some great singing and uplifting music.

    Busstur genom Harlem med en mycket bra guidning av Anthony. Han var mycket kunnig om Manhattan och the Bronx och berättade med stor inlevelse. Vi fick se många spännande platser. Kyrkan vi besökte låg i the Bronx och det var en häftig upplevelse att få komma dit. Vi blev mycket varmt mottagna av alla härliga människor där. Tyvärr skulle bussen vidare innan mässan var slut. Vi hade gärna stannat längre. Vi kan verkligen rekommendera en sån här gospeltur. Det var en upplevelse!

    A wonderful and moving trip. Our guide, a former concert pianist, knew the Area and its characters very well (she lives there!) We enjoyed the short bible readings and the choristers singing and rocking. As mentioned our guide on the coach was a delight and so informative. Excellent driver too. So much history associated with the Area and of course the music story of The Appollo. Importantly, please save time by exchanging your voucher for this tour prior to your day of travel.

    Really interesting trip around Harlem and the Bronx as well as the Gospel visit. It was great to see other parts of New York City.
