My boyfriend and I went on this trip last week and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were lucky enough to have Grandmaster Caz as our host who was so knowledgeable and entertaining. I loved seeing the graffiti in the different boroughs and the food at the Soul Food cafe was amazing! I would definitely recommend this tour, it was brilliant fun!

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
