From murals and graffiti art to rhymes and dance-offs, our tours include an interactive off-the-wall look into New York's hip hop culture. Hush Hip Hop Tours provides a one of a kind experience, connecting guests with those who spawned and the art form. Who better to tell the stories of its emergence within the Boroughs of New York City, than the legends themselves? Join artists such as Grandmaster Caz. Kurtis Blow, Ralph McDaniels, Kool DJ Red Alert, Rahiem, Reggie Reg, Johnny Famous on a unique excursion crediting the essence of Hip Hop. Recognized by major media outlets such as, BET, MTV, Vh-1, Hush Tours perpetuates the origin of Hip Hop culture by offering customers the opportunity to revisit past and present day history.

During a recent trip to the US (Baltimore), I decided to take a day trip to NYC so I could attend this tour I have been wanting to go on for years. If I'm honest, one reason I wanted to go on it was to meet Grandmaster Caz, however being a hip-hop fan from the early 80s I wanted to... More

We had the honour of experiencing the hiphop tour 'Birthplace of hiphop' with Grandmaster Caz and really just loved it from beginning 'till end.

This tour was above and beyond our expectations. We loved hearing the story of hip hop from the personal perspective of Grandmaster Caz, who was there from its inception. My husband and I took our 13 year old son, and we will never forget the story of hip hop we learned about. My husband and I saw historical icons like... More

I like things free-and-easy and was initially hesitant to spend four hours on a tour but it went by so quickly and I enjoyed every minute of it! I went on the Hip-Hop tour with Grandmaster Caz. You get onto a bus and Grandmaster Caz takes you through a drive-through tour of Manhattan/Harlem/Brooklyn with stops along the way to visit... More

Brilliant hosts, lovely mini bus, driving around Harlem and Bronx listening to some old time classics. Initially I thought I could visit the main sites on my own, but they showed areas that I would never have picked out and while you're there you can feel the benefit of being part of Grandmaster Caz's tour. Be warned, if you book... More

Grandmaster Caz is the real deal. He is charismatic, witty, full of heart, organized, focused, and true to his passion. As an OG (original Gangster), he takes you from birth to present time of Hip Hop. Our sons are deeply in grained in Phoenix's Hip Hop scene. We have lived the art of Hip Hop for a few years, from...

I got to meet Grandmaster Caz, one of the living legends of Hip Hop, as he led our tour. You should know that there are others leading the tours, since they are overlapping.

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.
