Wow, what a day. Mega mega thanks to the congregation of the Greater Highway Deliverance Temple in Harlem New York for welcoming us into their church. This is how everybody should be in church, what a celebration of God and Jesus. A must for everyone. Very kind and passionate people. The singing,dancing and the sermon, very inspirational. Thanks again.

Did not know what to expect. Pleasantly surprised. Perfect day weather wise the church we went to was so welcoming. It was so great to witness how another faith celebrates their religion. Our guide was very informative about the various sites and history attached to the area. Worth the ticket!!

The singing and the service was not very professional, but the sincerity of the people made up for it. Totally enjoyed the service and being with such beautiful people that were so sincere in their faith.

Great tour - I thought it was just a church service but was pleasantly surprised to get an informative funny quirky tour of New York and an incredible 1 hour spectacular- the pastor , the congregation and the choir was straight out of “COMING TO AMERICA “ - you have got to see it to believe it.

This tour was very interesting and the church service was very enjoyable and a lot of fun! Tour guide and driver let us get off the bus at Yankee Stadium on our way back which was very kind and saved us making another trip out. We had a lovely time on this tour!

I really enjoyed the tour. The Gospel Service was very warm, energetic and welcoming! A very special experience. The guides from Harlem Spirituals were very knowledgeable. The also helped me to catch a taxi after the tour, as I wanted to see the Brooklyn bridge afterwards and still catch my flight on the same day. Many thanks!

Amazing experience, what a privilege to attend this beautiful community church. I think the tour directors need to make it very clear this is a real church service and remind people NOT to take photos. I was slightly embarrassed to see people taking photos. There are signs asking people not to take photos. Relax and enjoy the service it was a wonderful experience, well worth it.

This was a great tour and well worth the money. We drove round Harlem, met The Great Franco artist who sells his work and paints all Harlem's shop fronts whilst stopping at the Apollo and also did some walking. The highlight, however, was the church visit. It was like being in Sister Act! Quite a surreal experience and the congregation were welcoming. Ellen, our host, was fabulous and very knowledgeable. I would urge anyone to do this tour.
