Owner description: 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.

“Must Do while in NY”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Very fun for all ages. It was myself and 12 year old son. Doesn't matter if you don't listen to hip hop or rap, the tour embraces the culture of music in so many ways! Very great guides also!

“Fun and Informative”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Highly recommend the Hip Hop tour if you're in New York. Guided around the birthplace of hip hop by one of its founding members (Grandmaster Caz) is both educational and a ton of fun. Caz does a fantastic job of bringing everything to life; even if you didn't know you were into hip hop, you will be by the end of the tour.

“Amazing way to expore the City & learn about Hip Hop culture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

My co-workers and I went on the Birthplace of Hip Hop tour as a team-building outing on March 5 and we had a ball! Many of us are from NYC while many others are fairly new to NYC, however we all learned something and enjoyed the entire experience which was helmed by legendary and founding MC, Grandmaster Caz. We learned a bit about B-Boying history and took part in a demonstration, learning some basic B-Boy dance moves.
Hope our team can do another one of the Hush tours in the future!

“best tour EVER”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

We took the birth of hip hop tour and didn't regret it at all...Hosted by the hilarious Grand Master Caz, we went through Harlem and The Bronx to discover Hip Hop (and I mean real hip hop).
Listening to the stories from one of the pioneer of hip hop is an experience you can't get anywhere else, and believe me when the MC talks, all shall listen closely, his knowledge of hip hop is as huge as the ocean.
You'll also get a pretty cool lesson about and of b-boying which is one of the pillars of hip hop.
It was a very informative and entertaining tour, I wouldn't hesitate to do it again, and I hope I'll be able to do one of the other hush tours when I'm back in NYC
