Tour Description 

  • Discover how African American culture shaped Paris in the Jazz Age and beyond on this seven-night trip to the City of Light. In the years following World War I, many African-Americans — including luminaries such as Josephine Baker, Langston Hughes and Eugene Bullard — felt accepted in Paris, thousands of miles from the States.
  • Trace the rich history of the city’s African-American community on specially designed walking tours and talks, and watch a documentary about the African-American influence in 1920s’ and 1930s’ Paris.
  • After, meet the filmmakers for a Q&A session.
  • Learn how jazz enchanted the city, and feel the rhythms for yourself with dinner and a concert at a local club.
  • Along the way, enjoy quintessential Parisian experiences: the cuisine, a Seine cruise, a Louvre tour, and traveling on the Métro.
  • This small-group program, ideal for active travelers, features first-class accommodations and an extensive meal plan, including wine with dinner.
