It was nice
My tour was outstanding. the tour was given by Grand Master Caz who was the best. As an member of the Cold Crush Brothers an original Hip Hop group he was extremely knowledgeable. We had teenagers with who are still talking to the friends about the tour. As an adult who comes to Harlem frequently, I learned so much.
This tour was amazing. We were lead around Harlem by a veritable hip hop pioneer . He had lots of stories and insights into hip hop and the Harlem neighbourhood. Really amazing. Great guide and nice guy too. Went out of his way to show us even more to Harlem . Highly recommend thisctour
This was a great tour both in terms of HipHop and seeing Harlem. It was especially great to have the tour hosted by a genuine Hiphop artist.

JDL, our tour guide is excellent. He is so friendly and knows the area really well. I learnt a lot about the hip hop culture and it was great to get to know more about the Harlem area.
This was a stellar tour. Nelson was knowledgable and very passionate about his subject. I learned so much about the hip hop culture I can't pass by graffiti art now without feeling a new respect for it. My only criticism was the weather ; it poured rain.

Despite the cold, rainy day, the tour was great. The tour guide, JDL Wilson was the real deal. He was extremely knowledgeable, and was happy to answer any and all questions, making the tour interactive and fun!
