We took the Jammin Jazz Tour through Welcome to Harlem. It was an enjoyable, great tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and efficient. He told us the history of the buildings and of the area, then we spent about an hour listening to some jazz. I look forward to new tours.

Our Jazz Walking Tour of Harlem began about 20 minutes late because my walking compatriot and I were late showing up. The staff waited for us, however, and began the walking tour immediately. Our guide, Cheryl, was incredibly knowledgeable of Harlem and its history and was able to answer questions unrelated to this particular tour. In addition to focusing on the history of Harlem, Cheryl also gave an overview of the social aspects of living in Harlem. I found this to be incredibly informative and it was wonderful to know that I was supporting a local, minority-owned and run business.
