Full description
This Hip-Hop Tour aims to educate and entertain guests in the history of hip-hop, showing the evolution of a truly New York art-form through the eyes of actual artists.

Each jam-filled bus journey is led by pioneers, including but not limited to GrandMaster Caz (Cold Crush Brothers), Kurtis Blow, Rahiem (Furious Five), and Reggie Reg (Crash Crew).

These artists take you through their old stomping grounds while sharing personal stories and anecdotes as only a pre-"old-school" rhyme master could. Follow in their footsteps with photo-friendly pit stops at the legendary Apollo Theater and an array of clubs. This 4-hour tour cruises through Manhattan and the Bronx, explaining the movement in its formative years and showing how it took its baby steps.

Join the musical journey through the birthplace of hip-hop and explore over 3 decades of history.
