Our family enjoyed both the Dancer's Delight walking tour and the Birthplace of Hip Hop bus tour. The Dancer's Delight walking tour was a great way to see not only several important venues and neighbourhoods in the history of hip hop but also a way to explore areas of New York city by subway and on foot. And you will do alot of walking! But our guide, Mighty Mouse, kept it fun and upbeat with his explanations and stories as well as the great music he played along the way. He showed us locations where battles were held, the Graffiti Hall of Fame and taught us some bboy moves. There was lots of time to take pictures and Mouse was very knowledgeable and personable. The next day we did the Birthplace of Hip Hop Bus Tour with Grandmaster Caz and his crew. They were knowledgeable, funny and helpful. The bus was comfortable and air conditioned and they always made sure passengers were safe boarding and exiting the bus on busy streets. We went to the Museum of New York to see the graffiti exhibits and then outside Kid Glyde taught some breaking moves and we participated in a cypher. We saw many landmarks in Harlem and the Bronx and had lots of time to take pictures as well. It was a good experience for our teenagers to hear more about "old school" and the evolution of hip hop culture. We had a lunch stop at a soul food restaurant and it was delicious. You also had time to buy souvenirs then. The bus ride back was filled with videos, insightful stories and guests on the mic. Very interactive tour. My only recommendation would be to email in advance the meeting point and drop off locations so one can plan the rest of their day visiting New York City.
