Spend a morning immersed in the rich and eclectic culture of Harlem. Meet your guide near Times Square in the morning and board a comfortable coach for the drive north to Harlem. Admire the stately homes and historic buildings of Strivers Row and Sylvan Terrace, and cruise by musical landmarks like the Apollo Theater, which has hosted some of the hottest names in jazz and R&B throughout the decades.
Continue on to a local church to take part in an inspiring morning service featuring the soul-stirring vocals of the ARC gospel choir. This community choir helps support the drug treatment services of the Addicts Rehabilitation Center, New York State’s oldest drug-free recovery program.
If you select the lunch upgrade, enjoy a delicious meal after the gospel service at Sylvia’s restaurant. Founded by the ‘queen of soul food,’ this Harlem institution dishes up beloved southern-inspired specialties like fried chicken, spicy ribs, collard greens and cornbread.
At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off back at the original departure point in the afternoon.
