This is a deep dive walking tour into Harlem culture and living history with someone steeped in knowledge and experience of the local scene. Meet your friendly guide Amanda or Gordon at the world famous Apollo Theater, conveniently close to the subways.

As we walk around Harlem’s beautiful tree-lined streets of brownstone homes, you’ll stop to greet neighbors and linger to take in the spontaneous moments that epitomize Harlem today: It may be a street fair off Malcolm X Blvd.; an hypnotic West African drumming circle on Adam Clayton Powell Plaza; a sidewalk poetry recital or passionate political speech; or it may be a street art exhibit that will capture your attention for a while. This tour is designed to live in the spontaneous moments that make any meaningful Experience memorable and special.

Walking to the beat of the streets, our route starts at The Apollo Theater to learn about how Ella Fitzgerald, James Brown, and Michael Jackson all became legends there. The 1920’s Prohibition Era comes alive walking in footsteps of Billie Holiday down the original Swing Street and Blvd. of Dreams to see the legendary "Tree of Hope. " You’ll visit 60 ft murals of Dizzy Gillespie while strolling along the Walk of Fame, and get a great photo with Deo's amazing Harlem World mural.

Hi, I'm Gordon, a 3rd generation New Yorker. My co-host, Amanda, and I are in love with Harlem. Personally, I’ve owned and operated a unique Harlem jazz club, EZ's Woodshed, and have been designing and leading immersive tours through NY's underground jazz scene since 1997. I'm a domestic / international tour guide and world traveler with extended stays in Nigeria, Ecuador, Asia and Israel. As a political activist, I walked across America in 1986 for nuclear disarmament on the Great Peace March.

Amanda is a 20-year Harlem resident, Columbia University graduate, and Jazz Diva Supreme who shows you Harlem's hidden secrets and iconic landmarks. Amanda knows everyone and no one could ever forget Amanda.

Our nightly Big Apple Jazz tours are ranked #1 in NYC on TripAdvisor.

We'll meet at world famous Apollo Theater to begin our exploration of Harlem.

It’s also the other historic markers and current street art and street life - the intrinsic treasures - we value the most and can't wait to share on this Experience.

We'll see and discuss The Jazz Walk of Fame, 60 foot murals of Dizzy Gillespie, Deo's Planet Harlem, and Billie Holiday's 1933 plaque. And of course, The Apollo Theater.

This was a great way to see a side of Harlem I would have never known existed! Without Gordon, we would have never experienced such amazing food, and hear about incredible history. My husband and I have a blast!

This has been one of the best tours we have ever been to. Gordon knows so much about the Harlem jazz scene and is so passionate about it. He tailored the experience to us by having a pre-tour discussion on the phone to see what we wanted to get out of it and what kinds of things we wanted to see and learn. I highly recommend combining this tour with his Harlem Jazz bar crawl, which we did as well.

Harlem is big part of the history of America. From George Washington to prohibition to The Apollo Theater. This was great! I highly recommend this tour.

Unfortunately, my family and I were very disappointed with this tour. Gordon is a lovely person, but he didn't have any enthusiasm so the tour wasn't engaging at all. The pace was also very slow and for the price, we were expecting to see & learn so much more.

This is a tour you do not want to miss! This isn't your run of the mill tour. Gordon has a wealth of knowledge and connections around the areas you'll visit. I would bet that if we took the tour again, we'd uncover even more about Harlem that we didn't the first time. It felt like he personally contoured the tour to my wife and I. We saw so much of Harlem and really got a full fledge history and appreciation of the neighborhood and it's arts and culture. We both felt like we made a true life long friend in hanging out with Gordon. Two of the best moments were when we saw an African drumming circle outside a building inviting us in, and then towards the end of the tour seeing an outdoor Jazz group performing in a park. They made us feel more welcome than ever before. This really was a perfect capstone on an amazing anniversary trip!! We can not recommend this tour enough!! If you love music and the history around jazz, funk, hip-hop and really Harlem itself and the art scene that exists there, you won't be able to find a better tour than this!! Thanks Gordon!!
