    What to Expect
    Discover the people and places of Brooklyn that have shaped the sound of East Coast hip-hop on this tour. Head to central Manhattan to board a comfortable coach and meet your guide, a local hip-hop artist. Cross the East River and into Brooklyn, where you’ll explore unique and historic neighborhoods where some of the world’s greatest hip-hop artists got their start.

    Hear stories from your guide about the musicians who grew up in Brooklyn or have found inspiration among its streets, including hip-hop legends Big Daddy Kane, Busta Rhymes, The Notorious B.I.G., Lil’ Kim, and Jay Z. Drive by some of their childhood homes and former hangouts, plus the site of filming locations for several well-known music videos. You also see the building that houses 40 Acres and a Mule, Spike Lee’s production company.

    Get off the bus at several locations to walk around and take photos. You’ll have a chance to buy CDs and merchandise from up-and-coming artists and enjoy a taste of Brooklyn with a slice of Junior’s famous cheesecake (own expense). At the end of your tour, you’ll be dropped off back in Manhattan to continue your urban exploration.
