2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better
January 2010

Food was nice and jazz was good, but overall probably not worth that much money. Tour guide was OK, not great as he was distracted by talking to one tour participant in a language she was studying. We were the only people at the club, which was a shame as it lacked atmosphere. Also we did not go to the Cotton Club, which was disapointing.

The evening was good, but it was spoilt by the meal that did not live up to our expectations. If you like lots of overcooked chicken and fish then fine, but frankly given it was supposed to be the home of soul food in Harlem it would have been more fresh from KFC! The tour was OK, but no one could see out of the front of the bus, so much of what was described could not be seen. Finally, I think only about 20 of the group were actually dropped at the point they requested on Broadway as the guide and driver seemed more intent on getting rid of us and squeezing us for a tip.

Not impressed - at all. It started out that the tour company did not have all of our paid party on their roster, they tried to blame Viator, luckily I still had the confirmation email on my phone to prove that I had paid for the four of us. Bus driver was MIA, we had to walk a couple blocks to get to the bus. The soul food restaurant was lousy, I'm from the south and this is not soul food, very meager portions. Cotton Club was great but only a dozen people were there on a Saturday night, it was kind of sad. While I appreciated that the guide spoke French and that was helpful to some of the guests, he seemed to have forgotten that some of us poke English. No big deal to us as we knew more about the city than he did. Don't waste your money or your time. Go to the Cotton Club on your own, it is worth the experience.
