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.

It was fun and informative. It was great to be able to ask our guide, an artist himself, about the history through his first hand knowledge.

Full disclosures, this review comes from a 50 YO suburban, West Coast dad who grew up as a HUGE fan of early hip hop, right from the start. I HIGHLY recommend this tour if you are a fan of hip hop. I was a teenager in the early/mid-80's when hip hop started to rise. At the time, we had to... More

So glad we went on this tour. Not only were the people involved friendly, informative and professional but they also gave a real NY hip hop blast of energy to the whole day. Got to see many uptown place that you may not visit on a typical NY break. Going to the Bronx was fascinating and the crew had a... More

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

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.
