Interesting and set so much of the scene. Informative tour guide and provided helpful answers to questions. If you wrap up warm in January you will be fine.

"New York Gospel Tour/High Line, Chelsea and Meetpacking District Tour/SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown Tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

We did the Brooklyn Gospel Tour, the High Line & Chelsea Tour and the SoHo, Little Italy & Chinatown with three different guides. For the Gospel Tour, our guide was Alessia. She really knew a lot of the history of the Gospel and had always an answer to all of our questions. Alessia was also very entertaining! She took us through different important spots in the history of Gospel, and despite the cold weather we really had fun. At the end of the tour, we went to the Brooklyn Tabernacle to hear a Gospel Choir and to witness a service. It was one of the most emotional experiences I had in my life. For the High Line & Chelsea Tour, our guide was Andrew. He was a very funny, entertaining and informative guide. He took us across the Chelsea Market, giving us very useful information where to eat after the tour. Then he took us to different spots in the High Line and informed us about the history of the Meatpacking district and the creation of the High Line. It was a very interesting and funny way of getting to know a district of Manhattan that it's not as popular as Time Square! For the SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown, our guide was Remy. He took us across these three neighborhoods showing us historical sites, famous buildings and telling us about the pop culture. Besides, he always had tips to show you where to eat. Remy was really funny and really knew about the history of these places. Thank you Alessia, Andrew and Remy for the tours, you where amazing and very helpful!!!

Katherine was an incredible tour guide. It is evident that she is passionate about the Brooklyn community and has a love for history. She connected well with us and was a wealth of knowledge. This is a MUST if you plan on visiting the Brooklyn Bridge or Dumbo neighborhood!

"Great Harlem Gospel Tour"

This past Sunday morning I was on the Harlem Gospel Tour with Galit, the best tour guide in the City! Despite the freezing cold, which could have definitely potentially ruined the tour, I was entranced and engaged the whole time. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who is looking for something really special to do in New York City.
