We had an awesome time on this tour - a bit pricey but still worthwhile. Very informative, we learnt alot. The tour was very interactive and we got to see quite a bit of New York which we would not have done by ourselves. Five stars xxxxx

Best tour I have ever been on. This is a must for any Hip Hop lover, young or old. It gives you a history of the culture of Hip Hop and is all hosted by none other than the legend that is Grandmaster Caz. He is a true artist from Old Skool Hip Hop generation and his local knowledge and enthusiaum makes this trip captivating!
