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.

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.

It`s a special experience. The Guides are funny Guys. I recommend this Tour! Sometimes It had been cool If we were more outside of the Tourbus and they had more talked about the area & other rappers than about themselves. But Still I recommend this Tour:)

It was an intresting and insightful tour of the Hip-hop landmarks in NYC. Grandmaster Caz wa an eminent host and it made the tour feel very autentic. I really recommend it if you want to see something you probably could't find on your own.

As a huge fan of hip hop I had a brilliant time but this tour would have been suitable for anyone with limited knowledge about hip hop. It was fun, knowledgeable and engaging. Very well organised and very welcoming and friendly hosts!! Open to any questions and trying to get everyone involved having a good time. I was really happy... More

Hands down, one of the best tours I have ever been on. Fun for the whole family, engaging, organized, interesting, and clearly well thought through and coordinated. The hosts were talented and professional. An all around great experience that is well worth the money and time.

Joined the tour with two friends not knowing what to expect - but don't let that put you off. Everything from the moment of booking through to delivery back to the drop off point was done with professionalism. The tour is interactive and great fun with crowd participation adding to the overall experience. If anyone has seen hip hop evolution... 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.
