Amazing guide!!!!

September 27, 2021

A great way to see the area and attend a rousing service- rounded off by some great soul food- well looked after, informative and glad we chose this- if in New York on a Sunday- definitely worth considering!

The gospel experience was amazing - the guide less amazing

It was a great experience to attend a gospel worship service and the trip to Harlem was good. The guide (never got hold of her name and do not know if she told it) seemed at first impression very lively and told many exciting things about Harlem, but she also seemed very busy. She was not so aware of whether she had everyone with her on the way to the brunch place and there was a lack of information about the low-practice, eg around the brunch.
