This tour was one of the highlights of my holiday, what a wonderful night and great tour guide. The food was fabulous and the jazz club, well I never thought that with my 2 left feet that I would ever get up and dance, but so glad I did it was so much fun it still brings a smile to my face whenever I think about it.
This was with out doubt the highlight of our trip to New York . We made our way to pickup point we're we did a ride to Harlem looking at the area. Quite nice ,some interesting places to see .Then we went for original soul food at a restaurant which was yummy.everyone enjoyed the meal . Then on to the Cotton Club we're we had a fabulous time .great entertainment dancing and singing all night . The gentlemen got everyone involved ,we loved it .There were single ladies on the tour too and they were up dancing all night. Can,t praise it enough .If you like a good evening singing and being entertained it,s the tour for you .
Guided bustrip from Midtown to Harlem with a great guide imforming us what is to know in the area we passed by. Stop at at Sylvia's in Harlem serving great soul food- chicken - ribs - fish and a delicious banana dessert. Stop at Apollo Theatre and finishing off in Cotton Club to listen to great jazz music and watchng a fantastic tap dance show. Highly recommended trip- good value!
This tour is a HUGE disappointment. The restaurant we went to gave us very little food, we had trouble sharing the portion between 12 people. The jazz bar they took us to had no cover charge. The music was not that good at all. Anybody off the street could have come in and sit down for free. We ended up leaving early because it was so boring. We just can't justify paying 175 per person for the evening.
