Fun experience
Terri_H, Apr 2024
Very fun experience. And you get a unique piece of art that you made to take home as well! The teacher was fun and helped us out when needed but also let us make some creative decisions.
Great for all! Teens and adults!
Laura_S, Mar 2024
Definitely with the trip we lived this activity! We have two teens and this was fun for all of us teens and adults.
Excellent experience - highly recommended

Excellent experience for visitors and locals! I went with my husband and our two children - ages 10 and 13. Everyone loved the lesson! Will have to come back again in the future and add on the neighborhood tour. Will never look at graffiti again in the same way! This is such a unique experience, highly recommended! We were so pleased with our final canvas, thank you, Graff Tours and Ghost Face Mims.
Amazing experience
Jennifer_M, Feb 2024
This was one of the best experiences. We had so much fun, our expert Mims was so talented, kind, and made the experience wonderful. Before leaving, my friends and I already wanted to return!! Definitely recommend and will be back 🎉💕
A birthday activity
Annabel_W, Jan 2024
I booked this as a suprise gift for my partners 50th birthday. It was a great way to spend an afternoon, get creative and we enjoyed wandering around the local area looking at the grafitti and wall murals. As someones whos not particularly creative it was something we'd never tried before, but we worked together under the guidance of our friendly grafitti artist instructor and have created a canvas to take home and be proud of!
Leaf is the Man!!!
Pauline_H, Dec 2023
Brilliant experience. Would defo do this again, theres so much to learn and being able to come away with your own piece makes this very worthwhile. Had "Leaf" as our instructor - real life graffiti artist. So incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about this, his art peices were very inspiring and real. Lovely guy
Fun Break from the usual tourist attractions in New York
Krisha_S, Dec 2023
This was really fun. Ghost did a great job of teaching us the techniques of painting with spray paint. He makes it look so much easier than it is! You get to take home your final canvas, and fortunately, he will put the finishing touches on it in case you are an armature like we are. Very enjoyable class!
Excellent alternative thing to do in NYC
Robert_B, Nov 2023
Our teacher Ghostface Mims was awesome, gave us some excellent graffiti tips, and helped us produce a piece which we got to keep and we will treasure forever It was an hour of great fun.
Fun Date Activity
AJandValerie_D, Nov 2023
Had an absolute blast learning with ghost today. This activity is a must try and definitely on a first date. I highly recommend!
Great Experience
ming1945, Aug 2023
Wonderful and different kind of experience. Learned about the history of Graffiti and techniques. Fun practicing with spray cans and experimenting with application. Eddie, our instructor, was extremely helpful. We are not ready for our brick wall yet, but activity did expand our perception and appreciation of graffiti art.
Sooo unique and incredible
Jennifer_K, Aug 2023
Ghost was the best! He was so funny & knowledgeable and we had the absolute best time. We got to make a cool family graffiti canvas to take home. Def 5 stars!!
Great class for Families
Lauren_N, Jul 2023
What a fantastic class - our only complaint was that it wasn't longer! We were a family of four - two adults and two kids (10 and 8). All of us had a great time and loved the final product, which was a combination of our efforts and our teacher's finishing touches. Would 100% recommend this tour (and already have to friends!).
Awesome experience
Tina_K, Jul 2023
Super fun and highly recommendable 🤩🤩🤩 Everyone got to do some grafitti and the Ghost added magic so it looked like real grafitti 🥰
This was a fun experience...
Kai_D, Jun 2023
This was a fun experience and something different! Highly recommend! Only wish we got to do our own instead a group canvas. You may request to do your own from the start of the class.
It was a great family...
Parwathi_S, Jun 2023
It was a great family activity creating a family art piece ! We are thrilled to display the art at home as a memory of our vacation!
Easy way to discover graffiti painting
Eric_J, Jun 2023
That was a fun activity and also an easy way to discover graffiti painting. Organisers are cool people and that was for us really a great NYC experience. Would advice to plan extra time before or after to visit the neighbourhood and all the real graffitis there !
experience did not meet...
Tija_S, Jun 2023
experience did not meet description. Additional unregistered participants were allowed in at the last minute which made the space too small to accomodate us, we signed up months in sdvance. Think twice before booking.
Don’t skip this while in NYC!
Amber_W, Apr 2023
Envy is a fantastic teacher and an amazing artist! She made the class really chill and fun. She made sure we left with a personalized souvenir that looked great! Highly recommend!
Tim_E, Apr 2023
The most memorable part was the final product because it turned out much better than I expected because I thought it would look like blobs
Very fun and a great experience
Cindy_K, Mar 2023
