Fun and Interesting!
Jul 2021
We really enjoyed this unusual activity! We developed an appreciation for the skill and speed of graffiti artists, and with the instructor's help, we were able to produce "professional-looking" results. The studio is located in a factory/warehouse area where virtually every building has been "tagged."

We booked a lesson for my husband’s birthday. There was only one other couple there and we spent the lesson on opposite sides of the room. This is a great pandemic activity for folks who are having trouble finding fun things to do during these turbulent times. Its also important to support cultural creators such as these artists! We had a great time! Our instructor was Gabriel and he was very patient with us- going through the basic terminology, practicing simple techniques, and helping us put together our wonderful tag on canvas that we took home. We had a night time appointment, so I’m not sure what the neighborhood is like during the day- but just take note that it was very quiet, not many places to wander for food/outoor seating or warmth, and the one rooftop bar that is nearby closed it doors literally yesterday. There isn’t a buzzer or doorbell for Graff Tours. We called the contact that was in the booking reservation to be let in.

A MUST!!!!!!!
Jan 2021 • Solo
I had a class yesterday with Gabriel and it was an experience of a lifetime. I had booked a while back and I ended up being the only one scheduled for the day. I was surprised I was the only one, and tht my session wasn't canceled for tht reason. Tht really shows tht they love what they do and it isn't just about the money. I'm from out of town and unfamiliar with transportation and the distances and times, etc. I ended up arriving an hour early to my session. I called and spoke with Gabriel, he was nice enough to accommodate me and take me early🤗. I really enjoyed myself, he was very thorough and encouraging and I didn't feel rushed for time or anything. My project turned out sooo nice and i'll recommend this to any and everyone. Thanks, Gabriel!!!!

Nothing but great things to say... Our instructor was super chill, personable, and helped coach my girlfriend and I to create an amazing piece to take home despite our extreme lack of artistic skills coming into this event. Lol. Graff tours is great for anyone and everyone looking for something laid back, fun, and memorable. We’ll definitely do it again next time we’re in town!

Fun experience
I booked this workshop after the graffiti walking tour so that my niece and nephew could get some hands on practice and make a unique souvenir from their trip. It was a small group with Leaf which meaner helps could really help everyone at their own pace. He was really patient and the kids had a great time!

Tour and Workshop were weekend highlight
Nov 2019
My 9 year old and I (his mom) did the Street Tour and then my son did the Graffiti lesson immediately afterwards. Both were terrific. Despite the cold, the Street Tour was fascinating and completely engaging. Both of us learned so much. As someone who lived in NYC in the 1980s and remembered the subway cars being covered in graffiti I feel like I left the tour with such a better understanding of how graffiti as an artform fits into the larger social and political landscape and also have a much better understanding of the artform and skill of it all. I think it is important to note that most of the graffiti you will see in Brooklyn is sanctioned by the building owners and not just random artists tagging buildings illegally. But of course learning about the illegal graffiti is part of what is discussed. Think of this as a much hipper and cooler art tour that you might get at a museum - but one where a 9 year old will listen raptly and hang on every word. And the graffiti that we saw was really stunning - simply beautiful and complex artwork that as the tour went on you could appreciate so much more with the detailed explanations. For the rest of our weekend in NYC, and since we have been back home, we look at graffiti so much differently and have such a better appreciation of it as artwork.

Taking the tour first was a great set up for the workshop. Now that we had seen all of these fabulous walls, it was time for my son to try his hand at it. The instructor was super patient and in a very methodological way walked through the process of learning how to control the paint cans and apply the color. That made us appreciate what skill and expertise go into each street art piece. The best part is that my son left with a canvas that he made and now it is hanging in his room. He talked about the workshop the entire weekend. We do a lot of cool travel activities and this has to rank up with one of our top activities ever in the world.
