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.

I took my sister (the bride) and 8 of her friends on a private Hush tour on Friday night. Debra from Hush brilliantly arranged the whole thing, including a hip hop dance class at the end of the tour that got the ladies' all energized for the rest of the night. We had our private, high end limo, and the tour was MC'd by Grandmaster Caz, who was on top form. The whole experience was terrific and a perfect way to entertain some pretty city-savvy girls without tiaras, strippers and other generic bachelorette stuff. But I guess if that's what you're after, Debra did offer an option of an exotic dance lesson instead!"

The best NYC hip hop tour ever!

Grandmaster Caz & JDL Wilson took us to the heart of the Hip-Hop homelands. Informing us of the true history of hip-hop and its many aspects. Live renditions of hip-hop classics and informative history really gave a good understanding of the birth of hip-hop. These guys are hip-hop legends i kid you not!

The tour operators have a great sense of humour and thoroughly entertained the group. I even got to try out some breakdancing in Harlem!

Awesome! Go to NYC hook up with Hushtours.com and enjoy!

This tour was amazing! Not only was it informative and fun for people who know almost nothing about hip hop, but also for those who do because you can recognize and see many places that are so important to hip hop culture. From 106th & park to the Apollo theater, it was an all around great experience. And a shout out to our guide JDL, knew soooo much about the people, area and history. And was a great guy to top it all off.

The Hush HipHop is the thing to do for two groups of people those who know something about HipHop and those who don't.
Why? Because the tour contains one part of HipHop cultural basics and an other in which you visit important places in HipHp history, for example the place were 50 got shot, were Nas grew up or the Building where the first HipHop Jam happened and the culture was born.
The is guided by no one else than Grandmaster Caz and JDL from the legendary Cold Crush Brothers, two HipHop pioneers who lived and live the story they tell.

I live in NYC and my roommate found this tour and signed up for it. I learned so much about hip hop culture and appreciate the Bronx more than ever (I teach in the Bronx). It was fun and exciting.
