Highly recommend this tour! Guides were legit, one a current rapper and the other was a pioneer. Both were enthusiastic and genuinely loved telling the hip hop story. Starting off to pay tribute to a few no longer with us like Aaliyah and Biggie to partying on the bus listening to NY's finest. Every aspect of hip hop covered.

True, I may be completely biased by my background as a Hip Hop promoter/manager/educator. But this was one of the BEST tours I have ever been on. Grandmaster Caz is what sold me to take this tour, and he was completely worth every penny. The points are interesting, the tour is highly engaging and for a true Hip Hop head it was like traveling to a time and space the exists with each of us. I also brought along my 69 year old mother, and she said the tour was so interesting and informative. I will warn you there is a lot of getting gone and off the bus, and the bathroom break doesn't come into nearly the end of the 4 hours (so plan accordingly). But the bus was really comfortable. I don't know what else I can say to convince you to take this tour...but everyone should do it (btw, it seems really family friendly as on our tour there were kids to folks my mother's age).

My boyfriend and I went on this trip last week and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We were lucky enough to have Grandmaster Caz as our host who was so knowledgeable and entertaining. I loved seeing the graffiti in the different boroughs and the food at the Soul Food cafe was amazing! I would definitely recommend this tour, it was brilliant fun!

We had an awesome time on this tour - a bit pricey but still worthwhile. Very informative, we learnt alot. The tour was very interactive and we got to see quite a bit of New York which we would not have done by ourselves. Five stars xxxxx

Best tour I have ever been on. This is a must for any Hip Hop lover, young or old. It gives you a history of the culture of Hip Hop and is all hosted by none other than the legend that is Grandmaster Caz. He is a true artist from Old Skool Hip Hop generation and his local knowledge and enthusiaum makes this trip captivating!

Absolutely tremendous tour. Great tour guide (Grandmaster Caz is a legend) who tells the history of hip hop with enthusiasm. Some great stop offs, including the Graffiti exhibition and breakdancing demo. A highly recommended tour suitable for all ages.

I was very pleased with the tour, the information and knowledge shared about the evolution of hip hop but Cas was the heartbeat. He was engaging and approachable and his love for hiphop and the city was on full display. He is a legend and a real treasure. Thank you Cas!

What a great tour with Hush Tours! I have been involved with Hip-Hop since 1981 and have always been inspired during various times in my life by the entire Hip-Hop culture and was looking forward to checking this one out... This is THE TOUR for the definitive narration on the roots and culture of Hip-Hop and eloquently delivered by the host Casanova Fly a.k.a. Grandmaster Caz. The pace and timing were spot on as were the off the bus moments. Suitable for B-Boys/Girls, M.C's, D.J's, and Graffiti artists, Old School, New School, and Future School. Don't sleep on this....
