The best word to describe this trip is: OMG I LOVED IT! We got more then our expectations would ever dream of! And our guide, Deborah - WE LOVED HER! A truly amazing woman who knows her history and keeps the “life” up in the tour group. We loved the church and the community and they were so welcoming to us. A true gospel service with “hallelujah” and singing and music. Worth every dollar!

Gospel Moment

We were delighted to have a van and tour guide to ourselves. Myself and my two friends enjoyed the tour with the personal attention we received. The Gospel Service that we sat in on was very moving and we appreciated the congregation letting us join them. We met a few locals in Harlem and were welcomed and entertained by them. Thank you to Stefania and Roberto
