Thanks for visiting Big Apple Tours!  Authentic Experiences, Big and Small:  Since 1997 we have been on the front lines of the underground New York City jazz scene - taking small groups of visitors down into the basements and alleyways where live jazz still thrives in neighborhood nightclubs from Harlem to Greenwich Village.  Hit the BOOK NOW button to read about our legendary tours.  We are equally excited to show you ALL of NEW YORK CITY.  Email us to hire your private guide in any language / on any subject. ~ Gordon Polatnick, Top Cat.

5 out of 5 Stars.

Recommended by a friend, this way-uptown tour way exceeded any expectations we had: Gordon is a mine of fascinating jazz info and knows the haunts - and the haunts know him, to the extent that, as part of his small party, we were welcomed almost as friends into three very special clubs. Musically these were varied but all classy and original; the atmospheres in each enabled us to begin to catch a glimpse of this magical tradition - the people, the families, the music, cultures, neighborhood, etc. Being a part of this for just a few hours was an extraordinary privilege. It was our NYC highlight for sure. Many thanks! A must-do option if visiting NYC, for however short a time, with or without any jazz know-how! We'll be back. (Thursdays are amazing!) ~ Rachel-Budapest

Your Host: Gordon Polatnick

"Greg recommends you consider a "Jazz Tour" if you're not really familiar with the jazz scene in NYC. Go to: http://www.bigapplejazz.com/testimonials.html  and read testimonials from people who have used Gordon Polatnick's custom tours. Seems that people from all around the world look to this guy's advice and services when they are in town. And his customers range from novices to jazz junkies - from typical tourists to UN ambassadors, high-society members and glitterati just passing through town.

Check it out; looks like a fun way to explore the jazz scene AND maybe meet some interesting people in the process."
