Dinner not included. Overnight.

2nd Day: Sunday
After an American breakfast at the hotel, meet at 8:00 am Riu Plaza Time Square, 8:15 am Paramount with the Guide and Tour Harlem Gospel Our Harlem Gospel Tour is special. We visit the northern part of Manhattan, to learn about the history, cultural heritage and soul of Harlem, the legendary neighborhood known throughout the world as the black Mecca of the world. This explosion of cultural pride, defined as "Harlem Renaissance" has its roots in the late 1800s, when a considerable number of African Americans, freed from centuries of slavery, migrate from the rural South to the urban north of the United States. We visit the huge St John the Divine Cathedral, the prestigious Columbia University where Barack Obama studied, the Apollo Theater which baptized sacred music monsters like Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Jackson, Aretha Franklyn and at the end we will participate in a Baptist Mass with the traditional Gospel Choir, clapping hands with the joyful sounds of the Gospel songs, reliving the original spiritual environment of the Gospel Mass, a tradition matured since the days of slavery, when blacks were unable to read and were not allowed to participate in the white cult. The current Mass traces the history of the appreligious slave of the slaves through the vivacity of the choirs and the movements of the ceremony. Originally defined as strictly religious, the "Gospel" has become a trend genre and has given its imprint to all other types of music and popular culture.

What to remember

Transfers:

Included in the program are JFK arrivals and departures from JFK, EWR, LGA.

Arrivals from:

Newark Airport (EWR) $ 109 per service

La Guardia Airport (LGA) $ 60 per service.

 

Tips and taxes:

In Italian culture tips are a plus that can be left in certain circumstances and at your own discretion.

In the United States things are different and tips are a real part of the service that must be considered.

Waiters, taxi drivers, porters, drivers and guides who will do a service for you if they wait for you and don't leave them is considered pretty bad. Also difficult to quantify, in general in a taxi at the end of the journey you will be automatically asked how much you want to leave from the electronic device, 20%, 25% or 30%. In general 20% is what is normally left.

In restaurants, the cost of taxes is doubled, so around 17-18% of the bill.

For Drivers and Guides the custom is $ 4-5 Driver and $ 8-10 per Guide per person per day.

 

Difficulty level:

These routes have been designed for all ages. However, participants must be able to walk during bus and longer tour stops during the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island Immigration walking tours, during the Meatpacking District and Highline tour and the subway return in which will need to go up / down the access stairs.

We suggest arriving to the tour with comfortable clothing and shoes.
