We were part of a small party, there was just one other couple. Our guide was excellent and we heard some of the history of Harlem as we walked between venues. The music was excellent at the first venue and another large party arrived with another tour guide. The 2nd venue was in the basement of a Brownstone. The music here was not as good as the first venue. However, there was a sense that the music was just stayed for the tour groups. Both bands were waiting our arrival and it seems they finish when we depart. The makeshift car in the 2nd location was staffed by a rude woman and this location was a very average experience. It was good to see Harlem and the music at the first venue was excellent. However, the overall feel was that everything was a bit contrived.

Very nice music. We did expect to see some more of Harlem but maybe we have to do another kind of tour for this.

Our guide was a wonderful, warm woman who was very professional. She made sure each of us were happy, where we wanted to be and knew when we could get food, drink or just listen to the music.

The two locations she took us to were very local and were places we were unlikely to have stumbled across. The first place was great and we really enjoyed it but as we started the evening at 6pm in summer it was still full daylight and felt like a Sunday afternoon jazz bar.

The second place was busy and really pumping. We saw about 5 people sit in and apparently there were many more lined up. With the diversity of talent and the ability to play of each other the energy kept getting higher. Was sad to leave, and in all honesty we could of stayed, but we all (there were only 3 in the group) had early morning commitments.

In between the clubs we got some fantastic oral history of Harlem and the local music, theatre and civil rights scene along with a concise history of the churches we passed. They all seemed to be very intertwined.

Highly recommend this evening and apparently the Thursday evening is different again so worth doing both

We were greeted very warmly by our guide and given a first rate tour of Harlem by longtime resident Cheryl. She gave us a great historical perspective and information about Harlem. She took us to a couple of jazz clubs that were off the beaten path and both were terrific and loads of fun. Overall a great experience.

Very intimate group allowed for a more casual atmosphere. We toured areas of Harlem on way to jazz club and was enriched by knowledge regarding architecture and historic figures. Guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and down-to-earth. Jazz was also genuine with very talented performers at venue. People were also welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would recommend.
