NY Tours should be larger than life, just like the city itself. Led by celebrity emcees, graffiti artists, DJs, and b-boys each of our bus and walking tours explore hip hop in neighborhoods like Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn. 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. « less

Went on the tour through Harlem and the Bronx for my 42 birthday. Hip Hop is a way of life and to touch base with the essence of its genesis as told by Cas is a tribute to the lasting effect it has on the human spirit. Seeing the sites and hearing the actual factuals from a legend in Hip... More

NYC has changed a lot over the past few decades to say the least. Natives and tourists alike are constantly in search of an attraction or an experience that truly captures the essence of the city. No form of expression has a more essential feel than music and no form of music has a more authentic feel than Hip Hop.... More

I will start off by saying that we booked this tour originally as my wife and I were interested in visiting Harlem and this tour was the only one available that matched the dates we had available. However, we realised immediately that we had been extremely fortunate to pick Hush Tours as soon as the legendary tour guide Grandmaster Caz... More

I booked the "History of Hip Hop" tour as a gift to my husband, a former New Yorker who grew up in the 70s right along with the culture. While we were the only Americans on the tour (aside from the guides), it quickly became apparent how Hip Hop has grown and touched other parts of the world as evidenced... More

The bomb! Caz and his folks were great and are the real deal. If you love hip hop you'll love it more after you get the real history. Highly recommend.

What can i say about Hush Tours other than WOW! My wife and i went on the Birthplace of Hip Hop tour on Sept 10th and had a fantastic time. Was an honour to have a living legend Grandmaster Caz as our tour guide, what that guy doesn't know about hip hop culture isn't worth knowing. The tour took us... More
