    We enjoyed this tour very much. I thi k that there were a few comments that concerned me such as now they Harlem had coffee shops we could assume everything there was alright. Not sure if coffee shop gentrification is a sign everything g is alright in a neighborhood...

    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.
