Thank you for stopping by Big Apple Jazz Tours! 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
backstreet basements where LIVE JAZZ still thrives in hidden nightclubs from Harlem to Greenwich Village.  Hit Tour Info to read all about our legendary jazz tours. ~ Gordon Polatnick, Top Cat.

"Awsome NYC Jazz Experience”

Jazz host and Top Cat, Gordon Polatnick, Big Apple Jazz Tours"Gordon is a true Jazz expert and enthusiast and when you book a tour with him, an unforgettable NYC Jazz experience is guaranteed. I booked the Harlem Juke Joints Tour which will give you a chance to see the variety of Harlem's Jazz clubs and to experience the rebirth of Harlem's jazz scene. You don't need to be a jazz expert - Gordon will give you expert guideance. The tour is for everyone who likes jazz and likes to explore new neighborhoods. I look forward to visit NYC again and explore the Greenwich Village jazz clubs with Gordon. Highly recommended!"   ~ pepe1569

Amanda Humes - Big Apple Jazz Tour

“One of the Best Tours Ever”

"I never would have thought that I would enjoy a tour in which jazz is centralized. We went on this tour for my stepfather, since he is a great fan of jazz music. We did not expect a tour guide like Amanda whom clearly loves what she does and knows a great deal about not only the jazz scene, but also about Harlem itself. She has a great personality and it is impossible not to love her... Amanda sings as well and if you're lucky she'll sing a little bit during the tour itself. It's also great to experience the community that lives in Harlem. The tour will bring you to some great "clubs" (as in small, cozy establishments) where people love to play music and share each others hobbies and interests. Everyone is very amicable and I promise you that you will leave this tour with a big smile and an awesome memory. Another fun fact is that, due to Amanda's enthusiasm, the tour will probably take a bit longer than the stated 4 hours which results in the fact that you can say you were in Harlem in the middle of the night! Must-see tour in NYC." ~ Dwayne D.
