Visitors of New York City shouldn’t miss Harlem’s Sunday morning gospel culture. However, if you’re not from the area, chances are you don’t know where to go to get the full experience. This guided tour takes you in a comfortable coach bus through Harlem to see top attractions, such as the Apollo Theater, and then lets you get out to stroll the neighborhoods. Plus, you’ll go to a traditional Sunday gospel service.
What to Expect
Meet for this Harlem tour near Times Square on Seventh Avenue. Once you greet your guide, hop aboard your comfortable coach bus and head north toward Harlem.

From the bus, pass important attractions, such as the Apollo Theater, the Cotton Club, and the former home of Duke Ellington. When you arrive in the neighborhoods, your guide parks, so you can get out and walk around. Your guide fills you in on details about the history and culture of these Harlem neighborhoods.

Next, it’s off to enjoy a traditional Sunday gospel service, complete with a soulful choir. Afterward, if you’ve upgraded, a Sunday brunch at a local restaurant is on the agenda.

Your Harlem gospel tour ends back at the original starting point near Times Square.
