Jump into the Harlem Jazz world on an unforgettable walking tour through one of New York's most fascinating neighborhoods. Go sightseeing in Harlem's historic jazz district to learn the history of the area as you move from one club to the next, led by your experienced and enjoyable jazz guide with years of training and an insider of the scene. Meet in a conveniently located Harlem location near the subway line. Visit two neighborhood clubs to enjoy great music - a sampling of styles and atmospheres that thrill audiences in Harlem today. Want to have dinner or sample local cuisine? No problem, dinner or appetizers can be arranged at both clubs you visit. Drinks are available for purchase at each venue as well. (If there is an exception, we will let you know ahead of time). The best has been saved for last: If you're a musician or singer, you can actually perform at one of the clubs we visit! There's nothing more exciting for the group than to have a talented member of the audience get up on stage and jam with the band. Let us know ahead of time so we can help make those arrangements. Please note that every night of the week offers a new itinerary, and we may need to update the meeting location and start time. Please look for personalized messages about your tour date from your guide, and confirm with them that you are aware of all updates.


Friendly, knowledgeable, and flexible guide service Transportation costs Cover charges to all clubs The chance to perform (if circumstances permit)

Important Information

  • Formal dress is not required. Dress for comfort as we'll be out in all kinds of weather as well as in hot or cold clubs. There will be some walking, up to 10 city blocks at a time, on this tour. Photography is encouraged, but only of the musicians not the other patrons and neighbors. Of course, friendships arise on this tour and photographs among friends are always fine.
