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.

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 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!

J.D.L. was the best. It was a really special tour. My 17 year old granddaughter loved it as well and I highly recommend it to everyone. Rosalie

It was excellent to have our own guide and this made it a very personal experience. Our guide was not only knowledgeable, he had first-hand experience of the real roots of hip-hop, was funny and friendly. The places we visited were interesting - the Graffiti Hall of Fame, community gardens etc - and not touristy. We got to see some of the streets and sites of everyday Harlem with an entertaining guide. Two hours was perhaps a little long, but that may have been because it was 90 degrees !

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.

Loved the tour. Very entertaining and a personal approach. The trip I went on there were only two others and it was still very enjoyable. Tour guide was fantastic and very enthusiastic.

This was excellent although the time that Viator gave us for the Walk was wrong, we were told 11.00am on Wednesday but when they didn't show up I rang to be told that the Tour wasn't until 1.00pm couldn't hang around so organised it for the next day which was 1.30pm. We met our guide "Reggie" and he gave us a great walk and showed us all around Harlem and gave us a good insight to Harlem, took us to Apollo Theatre and had a brief look around and then was very helpful in getting us back to our hotel. Very enjoyable except for the mixup with times as we had to get a taxi to the meeting point as didn't quite know where to go and this was a little costly but it worked out in the end and we were told we could get there by bus the next day

Note from Viator: Thanks for your feedback. We appreciate your feedback and are following up with our local supplier.

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 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.
