TOO CLASSY BY HALF !

HUGELY wanted to do this as well as the Gospel Tour, but was unable to do so.

I am a cancer patient recently out of hospital, and simply tried to do too much .

They tried very hard to accommodate me - and the they REFUNDED MY MONEY !

Note that they were under no obligation to do so - I did not have travel insurance.

Having been burned far too often by fly-by-nite tour operators, I have only one thing to say : HOW CLASSY !

Still determined to return to the Big Apple and do this.

Incredible fun and great entertainment. Took my 30 year old son on the tour and we all had such a great time.

This tour was one of the highlights of our stay in NYC! Our tour guide Ulrich and driver Marco were entertaining, informative and so accommodating! The experience itself was truly memorable, from the taste of home-style cooking at Sylvia’s to the delights of the Cotton Club and all it had to offer (souls singers, big band, tap artists, dancing girls and a fabulous old school decor - amazing) We had so much fun! A massive thank you to all involved!!

This trip was brill. It's the first time I have been to a typical New York Jazz Club. The food beforehand at Sylvia's was superb and the venue for the jazz night, Red Rooster, was everything you can expect from a night venue. My only criticism is the artiste ' a jazz harpist'. Yes, a female playing a harp!! Her band consisting of a bass, drums and saxaphone were just as expected and were great. It was not what I expected tho which spoilt it but it was still an excellent trip and would certainly recommend it, especially to a 'jazz novice'

This was a fascinating trip. forget about your preconceptions of Harlem and enjoy the truth about this interesting place. Enjoy the wonderful food at Sylvia's and then relax to excellent jazz with good company. The guide on this tour was excellent.

A fun night although the band at the Cotton Club looked disinterested. Peggy was great, the food at Sylvia's was great, and we enjoyed watching the dancers.

An amazing night. Dinner at Sylvia's was great and the music at The Cotton Club was lovely although was a little conservative for our jazz expectations.

Very nice trip- would have never gone there w/o a tour. Guide was very informative and it was small group. Chicken was great at Sylvia's and the jazz club was fun. We actually got off the bus at the Apollo and was able to walk in.

This is a tour you should not miss. The tour of Harlem was very interesting, the Guide very well informed, full of personality and throughout the whole evening made sure we were all well looked after. We dined at Sylvia's Soul Food Restaurant, lovely friendly atmosphere, the food was great and so much of it! The Jazz Club, Showmans, was a real old fashioned Club, quite small but lots of atmoshphere. (possibly the tiniest toilets I have ever visited). We had two complimentary champagne cocktails which were great, then enjoyed a fab selection of reasonably priced cocktails from the menu. The music was excellent, the band were clearly loving every minute of it, we also enjoyed an impromptu performance from an elderly gentleman which was wonderful. At the end of a really enjoyable evening our Driver (Carlos I think) dropped us back at our hotel to save us getting a taxi from the pick up point, and kept us entertained with a hilarious 'guided tour' of his own... we laughed till we cried. What a great end to a fabulous evening. Will repeat this tour again on our next visit. Thank You.
