Harlem Hip-Hop Walking Tour
Well before the Globetrotters and the “Harlem Shake” appeared, there was Harlem, the neighborhood that is the birthplace of hip-hop. Harlem’s contributions to hip-hop art and culture are unmatched. On this guided, 2-hour walking tour, led by a hip-hop historian, check out important landmarks like the Apollo Theater, the Graffiti Wall of Fame, Lenox Lounge, historic Harlem jazz clubs and more. See popular locations for hip-hop music videos and hear exclusive stories. Admission to the Museum of the City of New York is included.
What to Expect
Take an unforgettable journey through the history and evolution of hip-hop culture on this 2-hour walking tour in Harlem. Expect to meet, greet and be guided by hip-hop legends.

Learn about the history of New York City, and then visit important landmark locations like the Apollo Theater, the epicenter of African-American culture and a driving force in shaping America’s musical landscape. Lenox Lounge is a bar that has hosted classic performances by many great jazz artists. See some of Harlem’s oldest record stores and clubs

This Harlem hip-hop walking tour is family friendly and suitable for fans of all ages. It’s a unique musical and cultural experience that can only be presented by the city’s legends of hip-hop themselves — offering guests a rare, interactive, off-the-wall look into New York’s legendary hip-hop culture.
