From the moment we met Carolyn and Jonathan they were great. We even had a party in our group who didn’t speak English very well and Jonathan would do quick translations for them. Tour was great very insightful of life in Haarlem The actual service was something else that I will never forget.

The Harlem Gospel Tour with brunch is highly recommended, Carolin tells very interesting, precise and with a lot of joy and heart about Harlem and its history! The gospel mass was a great experience and the final brunch was fantastic! So all in all I can ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND the tour!!!! Thank you for the impressions

Got this trip as a gift and would do it again in a heartbeat. We had an amazing time with Caroline and Jonathan as our tourguides. A lot of people on the street kept telling us that she was the best tourguide and she definitely was. Caroline was very funny and had a lot of knowledge about Harlem. Jonathan was the sweetest. He remembered all of our names immediately and was very helpful with translating, taking pictures and finding lost items. The service was amazing, it was very hard to sit still! Afterwards we had a great brunch and even a little birthday party for one of the children of the group. Like Caroline said, next time, we're staying in Harlem!
