Tour Description 
  • Discover the reach of African American culture in Paris, the City of Light, and walk in the footsteps of luminaries such as Josephine Baker, Langston Hughes, Eugene Bullard, Miles Davis and many more.
  • From jazz musicians and club owners to writers and scholars, many African Americans felt welcome and accepted here in Paris, thousands of miles from home, in the years following World War I.
  • During this seven-night journey, trace the rich history of the city’s African-American community on specially designed walking tours and talks, watch a documentary about the African-American influence in 1920s’ and 1930s’ Paris and meet the filmmakers for a Q&A session, and listen to the music that entranced the city at a jazz concert.
  • Enjoy quintessential Parisian experiences: the cuisine, a Seine cruise 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.
