Hush Hip Hop Tours is the premiere New York City sightseeing tour that educates tourists, and locals alike. NY Tours should be larger than life, just like the city itself.

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. Our decade long existence has allowed us to master the craft of tourism, providing an experience so unique it should be done in repetition. More than just a tour- one official experience.

We are a couple in our early sixties and came to New York with our youngest boy, now a young man of 20. The last time we were in New York was in the early 70's when going to Harlem and being in Central Park at any time were considered a big no no. When we asked about the Hip... More

First of all I have to start out saying Hush Tours does a great job encouraging its customers to write reviews of the tour and this one reason why most reviewers on this site only have written several reviews on TripAdvisor.

I recently visited New York City with my family on vacation. We were staying in Times Square, and I was tired of the more "touristy" spots that we had been exploring. I am also a lifelong rap fan and knew that while I was in the city I wanted to find a few notable hip hop spots. This tour fulfilled... More

Husband and I took this tour as avid and lifelong fans of hip hop music. Having one of the old school legends as our tour guide was definitely awesome. Hearing stories from a guy who was there from the beginning was amazing. The tour makes various stops and is very entertaining. The museum stop showcasing the hip hop photography exhibit... More

KLM7602, Thank you for the honest review. Although it is The Birthplace of Hip Hop Tour, we do like to highlight other Harlem and Bronx landmarks for many of our customers who may not make it up to these locations otherwise. Still, completely understand if certain things felt out of place. Glad to hear it was an enjoyable experience overall... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the Birthplace of Hip Hop Tour with Hush Tours. It was a fun and interactive tour and as old school hip hop fanatics we enjoyed learning and seeing where it all started in the “Boogie Down Bronx”.

The Birthplace of Hip Hop tour was one of the highlights of our vacation. This tour was professional, educational, interesting, engaging and interactive. Grandmaster Caz is an open book. He willingly shares an invaluable first-hand account of a loved art-form. In additon, he exposes tourists to parts of Harlem and the Bronx. If you're looking to experience more than just... More

This Tour was a must do experience when coming to NYC. So much knowledge by an amazing legend, Grandmaster CAZ! This tour was not only interactive, educational, but also a once in a lifetime experience that exceeded all expectations, oh and great for the kids too. I can't wait to do the other tours.

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.
