A must! Energy is infectious - Cayge was a phenomenal tour guide. The tour provided a deep history of jazz and showcased the various versions Jazz can take. The bands we went to see were amazing and the energy was infectious. Cayge even shared with us her Jazz playlist.

Wonderful and educational experience! - We learned so much about the beautiful history of jazz! Our tour guide Çayge clearly knows her stuff! Not only was she able to provide insight about how jazz came to be but was super knowledgeable when answering all the questions we had too. The evening kicked off with a walk through the Louis Armstrong Park where she explained to us the historical figures of jazz. Then, we visited two lively jazz clubs that had bands with different styles. My favorite part was when Çayge pointed out specific musical patterns to listen for. The complimentary drink was also a nice touch! All in all, we learned so much about the colorful history of jazz. Definitely recommend this tour to all music and history lovers!

We Felt Mislead - We did not really get to see much jazz. We felt like we were mislead. We started in the park, and it was interesting, but I think we wanted to get moving from there to see all the jazz places. We kept passing all kinds of music!
