Response from Host, Feb 2024
Hi Donte, We are glad that you enjoyed the Evening Harlem Jammin Jazz Tour. There was a nice mixture of people on the tour and Doris is a wonderful tour guide. The American Legion Post always exceeds expectations. Thank you for choosing Welcome to Harlem.
Ok but not great

Tour guide was lovely but we only saw one jazz club with music . When we got to the 2nd place to eat & see the band they were packing up & only did one song for us .
It wasn't really a jazz...

It wasn't really a jazz tour we walked around for the first 50 mins with Harlems history that was fantastic. End at a bar for the next 2 hours
A Jazz tour with hardly any jazz

Harlem tour
Patrice_P, Oct 2022
What wonderful excursion! My friend and I started off running late (ugh). Carolyn was so helpful in helping us connect with the group! Natalie was a wonderful tour guide.. very engaging and knowledgeable of the history of Harlem. The bonus.. we met some amazing new friends. We all met afterwards at the local jazz club and had a blast! This tour is highly recommended!!
A Haarlem slice of history, then and now!
Shelley_B, Oct 2022
Meeting at Carolyn’s home in a Harlem brownstone, Nathalie as our tour guide, jazz club, great group of people and only six!
All Jazzed UP!!!
Doug_W, Sep 2022
Felt comfortable with the guide from the very start! She was personable, informative, and helpful. I am going to Hamilton tonight based on her discounted app suggestion! You can tell she really enjoys what she does.
Response from Host, Sep 2022

A great experience!

We arrived at our starting point on a cool and rainy evening. Carolyn made us feel right at home, even provided an umbrella. We strolled through Harlem, forgetting about the rain. Carolyn was knowledgeable about the history of Harlem, and we learned a lot. She took our photo in front of the famous Apollo Theater. Then we spent some time in a couple of jazz clubs, taking in the music and atmosphere. Carolyn even took us to a third, unscheduled club for us to enjoy. At the end of the evening, she helped us to navigate the NYC subway system in order for us to return to our hotel. Thanks Carolyn, for a fun and unique evening!

This was the highlight of my holiday to Washington and New York. The music was wonderful. Sheryl our guide was very informative and helpful. We would have eaten in Lenox Saphire had we realised this was possible. Would love togo again if we ever return to New york.
Harlem History and Jazz

Loved the experience. Went on a short walk around close by with Cheryl. She was lovely and clearly a true local historian. Ended with an intimate show. Quartet was fantastic- will be back! Definitely recommend.
This was a lovely way to see parts...
Tonya K, Apr 2018
This was a lovely way to see parts of Harlem and experience the local flare and community. The 2 jazz bars we went to had great music but I will say the price of the drinks jack daniels and coke were surprisingly high at 12 per drink at the first place but then only 6 for the same drink at the second bar. I wouldn't have expected period but especially since the cost for the tour was roughly 60pp. I would also say I wish there had been more exposure actually seeing Harlem in the daylight but our tour was at least 40 minutes late tour guide was late arriving in getting started so that cut into our precious daylight time.
Another Viator must do. We were met...
Christine_B, Jan 2017
Another Viator must do. We were met by our lovely guide on a very wet and windy evening but it didn't stop the enjoyment, walking around the brownstone buildings and then into the jazz club. The jazz was good the surroundings excellent had a couple of cocktails and something to eat and then our guide braved the weather and got us a taxi and negotiated a good price. what a good way to spend an evening.
Excellent tour ! Great knowlegable...
Matthias T, Oct 2016
Excellent tour ! Great knowlegable guide...Great Jazz at an American Legion Club Post 368 ...memorable evening !
Lovely and very informative leader...
Linda B, Jun 2016
Lovely and very informative leader. We went to three venues. Only one was playing jazz. It got expensive. We bought drinks and were asked to tip the musicians at each. One of the venues had a cover charge which was subsequently refunded by the tour company which I appreciated.
We took this tour as we were hoping...
M C, Apr 2016
We took this tour as we were hoping to be introduced to some of the jazz and music venues in harlem, a district we hadn't ever been to on our travels to New York before. We were not disappointed. There was only my husband and I on the tour but the tour guide took us along anyway. We had a walking tour of Harlem itself and then snook into a small local bar actually looked like a house where we were treated to an hour or so of Jazz music. We would never have found that venue if we weren't on the tour so I would definitely recommend this tour to others that are after experiencing a more 'local' time in the city.
Serata autentica!
Luc1778, Aug 2019
Grande serata, atmosfera e luoghi da ricordare in un’autentica esperienza newyorkese! Sia la nostra guida che i musicisti ascoltati sono stati all’altezza della serata, forse la più bella vissuta nei 9 giorni passati a NY!
