True, I may be completely biased by my background as a Hip Hop promoter/manager/educator. But this was one of the BEST tours I have ever been on. Grandmaster Caz is what sold me to take this tour, and he was completely worth every penny. The points are interesting, the tour is highly engaging and for a true Hip Hop head it was like traveling to a time and space the exists with each of us. I also brought along my 69 year old mother, and she said the tour was so interesting and informative. I will warn you there is a lot of getting gone and off the bus, and the bathroom break doesn't come into nearly the end of the 4 hours (so plan accordingly). But the bus was really comfortable. I don't know what else I can say to convince you to take this tour...but everyone should do it (btw, it seems really family friendly as on our tour there were kids to folks my mother's age).
It was not as fun as I thought it would be. First off the bus was not a luxury coach as it states on the description of the tour. It was a small bus that did have cloth seats but in no way a luxury coach. There were equipment problems with the microphone and the TV. It was definitely not worth the money. I was really disappointed as were my 2 kids. The tour guide did a good job but he talked about himself and his career too much. I also thought that he was too old school. I think they need someone a little younger that could relate better to the younger generation on the bus. My 2 teenagers didn't know half of the people he spoke about. The best part was going to the NY museum and seeing the break dancer perform, he was very engaging in the group and alot of fun. Unfortunately this is not something I would do again or recommend to anyone. Way overpriced for what we got.
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!
