Owner description: There is nowhere else you can rub shoulders with and listen to real insider stories from hip hop heavyweights and living legends like Grandmaster Caz, Kurtis Blow, Raheim of the Furious Five and Reggie Reg. …and what other experience gives you access to the secret sites that have played a critical role in shaping the hip hop culture? So, roll out with us. Other tour companies only show you the typical tourist-y spots and blindly pass over the rich, vibrant landmarks that give NYC its character. Our hip-hop tours are the best way for art and music lovers to visit sites you probably would have never visited on your own and experience sights, sounds and stories you won’t forget. Kick it with our crew and you won’t be disappointed. We’re all about preserving the roots of hip hop culture and that means sharing it with the world – and with people like you. For over a decade, we have been the leader in providing authentic insight into New York City and its impact on musical innovation. New York City is the undisputed Birthplace of Hip Hop culture and our tour guides are the originators! Let us show you the city’s hidden gems through the hip-hop lens.

Myself and my hubbie went on the hush hip hop tour in NYC in 2010. It was a stand out moment of our trip and we absolutely loved it. Most innovative tour guide I have ever been on, fast paced, interesting, moving and FUN! We were lucky enough to get Grand Master Kaz as our tour guide, which was epic in every way. We have recommended this to everyone since we got back and will continue to do so. Book yourselves on it - totally unmissable.

“Droppin' science”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

This trip was brilliant, it covers the main elements of hip hop, b boying, breaking, graffiti, MCing... Grandmaster Caz is an amazing guide and is so full of energy and love for all things hip hop. You get a real sense of how much creativity was coming out of tne Bronx and Harlem back in the late 70's and early 80's.
Caz has been there since day one and gives you first hand knowledge of how hip hop developed, through his own story of growing up in the boogie down bronx.
He also raps live in the coach over some of the all time classic cuts whilst you drive through Harlem and the Bronx, which for me was one of the highlights.
If you love hip hop and the culture yo have to go on this tour, it's pure dope!!!!!!
Grandmaster Caz and hush tours, thankyou for an unforgatable hip hop experience. Old school rules! Peace!
