  • Rencontre dans le monde du Jazz et de Harlem.

  • Soirée très sympathique avec un très bon band de jazz, une guide américaine amicale et parfaitement francophone, un groupe de touriste de 13 américains et 8 français pour une ambiance conviviale, une soirée à refaire sans aucun doute.

  • En fait de soirée autour du jazz , nous avons eu une présentation rapide de Harlem , le repas chez Sylvia's et la soirée dans un pub où un groupe jazz/blues jouait en live . La soirée a été très agréable , le guide très sympathique (nous étions juste notre famille de quatre personnes et lui) . J'avais choisi cette "excursion" pour mon père fan de jazz et j'ai été un peu déçue de ne pas aller ou passer devant certains endroit mythiques comme énoncés dans le descriptif !
