Over from London for 7 days and came across this tour last minute. Absolutely fantastic! Interactive, educational and great fun.Music along the way. The bus was incredibly comfortable and lunch at a soul food restaurant was wonderful. Our celebrity was Raqueem from Grandmaster Flash and the Furious 5 and he, along with "mouse" and John the driver all contributed to... More

You're riding through the actual hoods where the art form was born, and with a Hip Hop legend. There was a lot of really fun engagement in fact pretty much the entire tour, our guide was... More

The Birthplace of Hip Hop tour was a great insight into the origins of hip hop and the culture that underpins it. We were lucky enough to have Grand Master Caz as our tour guide who gave us his own unique and incredibly interesting insight into the history of hiphop. Whether you are a hip hop fanatic or just interested... More

I've taken tours all over the world and never had a guide as good as Grandmaster Caz. He knows how to talk and he knows what he's talking about. I booked the tour because my great-nephew, who's into hip-hop, came to visit from Portland, Oregon. Me, I knew nothing, but I definitely learned a lot. This is such a great... More

travelmonkey2006, Wow! We really appreciate the kind words. So glad to hear that your wife and son really enjoyed the experience after having to be dragged along in the beginning. We love to connect with the nostalgic/emotional side of true hip-hop heads, and also bridging that gap for those who aren't as big into the genre. Would love to have... More

If your a hip hop head this is the only tour to do. Grandmaster Caz is a legend and a true gentleman. Plus the soul food we ate in the bronx was probably the best food i ate all vacation ;) much love and respect to Grandmaster Caz Ray and Tyski valley from Mr welcome to the darkside. (uk)

Had a great day with Grandmaster Caz and his team. Very informative tour lead by a charismatic man. It's a shame if you go to NYC and don't get to see this part of music history. It was easy to book and professional. Keep doing the tours Hush!

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
