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 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!
