Description:

There is nowhere else you can rub shoulders with and listen to real insider...

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.

Our private tour made our visit to NYC, to celebrate a friend's wedding, perfect. We're all great fans of Hip Hop and the groom even more so. So being able to experience the birthplace of Hip Hop in the company of (the one and only) Grandmaster Caz was amazing for us. Touring with Hush was one of the great highlights... More

Was hoping for more highlights of hip hop history. Was more a walk around Harlem with a few facts thrown in here and there. Not great value for money.

I'm glad I went, even though it rained the whole time. But since it was a bus tour, we spent very little time outside (gotta get the photo ops in!). I would recommend it.

I attended the hip hop tour with my parents who are both in their 50-60's and not really hip hop fans. They absolutely loved it!! My Dad is still talking about it now. Grandmaster Caz made everyone feel so relaxed and welcome, answering questions and dropping so much knowledge it's impossible not to leave feeling inspired.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
