You’ll board a comfortable bus for a four-hour ride through upper Manhattan’s history-laden streets, where you’ll hear the story of the neighborhood, from its beginnings as a rural community to the astonishing Harlem Renaissance of the 1920s to the urban unrest of the 1960s and 1970s to the new renaissance that’s happening today. Along the way, you’ll see such impressive sites as the Church of St. John the Divine, Strivers Row, the Apollo Theatre, Sugar Hill and so much more. It’s all packed into four fascinating hours of culture, history and architecture. Plus, on the Wednesday tour, you’ll stop to hear the simply amazing sounds of the ARC Gospel Choir at their weekly hour of power church service. The choir is known worldwide for its gorgeous a cappella sound, as well as the moving story of how it came to be. On many tours, you’ll even be invited to join in. Please note: For the church service, proper attire is required, which means no shorts or tank tops. All in all, this tour makes for a captivating, inspiring excursion through a neighborhood most visitors to New York City have never experienced before.
