Come with walking shoes and ready to learn! You can tell the guide was really passionate about the arts and was really informative in a laid back way.

The graffitis are gorgeous. The tour was nice but I don't feel I've learned more than if I had just been walking by myself in the Arts District. It might be because I'm not familiar with names of graffiti artists. It seems that people who were already knowledgeable liked it very much. Also, the tour took place in the early afternoon. So it was really hot as we stayed out without any shade for 1h30 (bring a hat and buy a bottle of water); plus, the light was a problem for pictures as it was hard to take a shot without having crude light. The weirdest: the guide made a point of telling us it was established artists and commissioned art: not exactly the type of graffiti artists I was expecting.

Sunscreen and sunglasses and something to take photos with :) Pretty cool if you like or dont usually like graff, has a lot of different styles of graff from murals to small tags and you might catch an artist live

From Our Editors

A city's identity encompasses many elements, from its history and architecture to its art and culture. With Graff Tours, groups peek into each of those realms through a single lens: graffiti. During tours, guides and graffiti experts lead groups through the streets of major cities, including the birthplace of graffiti, Philadelphia. They showcase various types of art along the way—classic graffiti, wheat paste, stencil art, yarn bombing, and more—while explaining the content and importance of each piece. Much like blaring an Alexander the Great speech on your car speakers, tours are a mix of old and new, simultaneously highlighting the history of graffiti and demonstrating where the art is headed today. In addition to its group treks, Graff Tours also offers self-guided maps designed for specific neighborhoods for DIY excursions.
