This tour focused more on the history and sites of Harlem, more so than Harlem's connection to Hip Hop. The guide was friendly and accommodating, and managed to answer most of the questions from the group, however the information given lent more towards responses from questions about hip hop from the group, rather than an informed tour of Harlem and its specific relations to Hip Hop the only thing relevant on the tour was some graffiti art I gave this tour a 3, as despite it not being relevant to Hip Hop, the guide did give the group a guide to Harlem itself and its history, so for this it was worth it, as I had an interest in Harlem.

Great, Reggie was amazing with lots of charisma and energy. Think it could have been a bit cheaper but overall was still great and I learnt lots about the New York Hip-Hop and African American scene.

The tour was fun and informative. Reggie Reg guided us around Harlem and shared his personal knowledge and experiences with us. He showed us photos, played us music and even sang for us. He was friendly and engaging throughout the tour and happy to answer all of our questions. There was plenty of time to stop and take photos and talk about what we were seeing. In the high heat and humidity, this relaxed pace was welcome. I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am eager to return to Harlem on my next visit to NYC.

Great hustle; paying to walk around Harlem and talk about old and new rappers. We did get free entrance into the Museum of the City of New York. My boyfriend enjoyed it; I didn't.
