New York Harlem Half-Day Wednesday Tour and Gospel Mass

Explore the streets of Harlem on a Wednesday afternoon on a half-day tour with gospel mass. Founded in the 2nd half of 1600 as a Dutch farming community, Harlem grew enormously during the first great wave of migration at the turn of the 19th century. Between 1880 and 1920 large numbers of immigrants, especially Italians and Jewish Russians, arrived at Ellis Island and settled in New York. As you explore the fabled streets of Harlem, learn about significant moments in history, such as the abolition of slavery by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863. Hear about the row of tenements on 133rd Street, purchased by the Afro-American, real estate entrepreneur, Philip Peyton through his Afro-American Realty Co, and learn how he rented them to the newly emancipated black population with enormous success. By 1913 there were over 60,000 African-Americans living in Harlem, and more came to create the spiritual home of black America. Your guide will take you through the Prohibition years, tell you about the Harlem Renaissance, and the degradation of the 1970s. Hear about Harlem’s recent recovery in the ‘90s. Explore the historic district of Sugar Hill, Convent Avenue, Hamilton Grange, and Sylvan Terrace. See the Apollo Theatre, Hotel Theresa on 125th Street, and President Bill Clinton’s office. Then go to a Baptist Church to attend a true Gospel Mass.

Additional Information

The Wednesday Mass may include a short sung portion and a multilingual sermon that some people may find lengthy at times. Wednesday functions are perhaps less ‘entertaining’ compared to Sunday versions, but the tour operator would like to remind you that it is a religious Function, not a musical show. The tour itinerary is subject to traffic conditions, it can be modified during special events such as parades and the New York City Marathon and can be offered in vans or buses depending on the number of passengers.

No se le puede llamar misa al encuentro de los feligreses de los Miercoles; aunque todos ellos muy amables y cordiales, mo eran más de 20. No cumple la expectativa creada.

Fantastisk engageret guide. Lille gruppe. Stor oplevelse med alt det guiden fortalte om Harlem og naturligvis selve gudstjenesten.

The guide really brought the tour alive with her knowledge of Harlem and it’s history. The tour went very quickly .Wednesday services have a small congregation but they were very passionate and so the church felt far busier than it was. It was disappointing to see so many tourists videoing the service like it was a show. Also not everyone participated , clapping felt like the bare minimum and yet most tourists didn’t. It felt disrespectful .

Empezamos con lluvia y acabamos con lluvia, nos hicieron el 50% de descuento pues nos comimos la excursión en italiano pero no íbamos a buscar otra cosa pues lo importante era la misa y lo cierto que a pesar de que eran poca gente estuvo bastante interesante

Der Ausflug war relativ enttäuschend,il schlecht geplant. die verke
Der verspätete Beginn hätte durch bessere Planung vermieden werden können, da die Verkehrssituation bereits Tage vorher bekannt war. Die Führung in Haarlem war informativ. Das Gospelkonzert bestand aus 2 Liedern zwischen endlosen Gebeten von bis zu 20 Minuten.

GRAN DECEPCION
A pesar de que nos han devuelto la mitad de lo que pagamos, nos han dejado sin dusfrutar de uno de los tours que mas ilusion nos hacia al grupo de amigas que fuimos a NY. El guia no hablaba castellano, el tour lo tuvimos que hacer en italiano.No nos enteramos de nada. La afamada misa, no fue mas que un ensayo de media hora,con dos canciones y un sermon. La decena de participantes en el coro, iban vestidos de calle,....vamos... un chollo!!!

Obwohl wir nur zu zweit waren, hat die Tour stattgefunden. Das muss hier sehr löblich erwähnt werden und war dank der sehr netten Führung auch wirklich super klasse und exklusiv. Die Gemeinde, an deren Messe wir teilnehmen durften war sehr herzlich. Einzig und alleine soll hier ein kleiner Punkt dafür abgezogen werden, das die Kirche mit ca. 20 Gemeindemitgliedern und uns drei Besuchern wirklich leer war. Für uns einerseits wirklich rührend die einzig „Fremden“ zu sein, die so etwas Persönliches miterleben durften, andererseits auch etwas unangenehm. Ein richtiger Chor trat hier (Mittwoch Abend) nicht auf. Die Gemeindemitglieder sangen nacheinander die Gospel, was wirklich toll war, wir hatten evtl. einfach nur etwas Anderes erwartet?! Vielleicht sollte man sich einfach überlegen den Sonntag für einen solchen Besuch zu wählen. Alles in allem aber eine tolle Erfahrung!!
