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. 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.

My music taste is more of the recent rap/rnb etc, and my boyfriend is more into bands... so I was a bit apprehensive that I/we maybe wouldn’t know any of the people that were mentioned. However, we both really, really enjoyed it. Grandmaster... More

After my wife and I had the pleasure of going on the Where's Brooklyn At? Tour last summer no trip to New York would be complete without some more hip hop schooling. This time it was February, freezing and I was spending a week in NYC with my brother. We went on the birthplace tour with Caz and Rayza. Once... More

Great tour. Excellent guide. Funny and educational. Did both the Brooklyn Tour and the "Uptown Harlem Bronx Queens Tour." It was definitely well worth the money and two of our best days spent in NYC. I absolutely recommend this trip for anyone visiting NYC.

If you're a hip hop head or interested in music history then you will love this. The birthplace of real hip hop. Learn the history of all 4 elements. Dj, breakdance, graffiti and Mc'ing. Grandmaster Caz is a real hip hop legend and an awesome tour guide. Same with Mouse, who taught us some breaking, and the whole crew. Grandmaster... More

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.
