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.
