Great tour! Caz and the Hush crew are dope! Very accommodating and personable. The spots we visited were on point. The insights and knowledge from Caz was even better. Very interactive. Impossible not to have a good time.

If you are a Hip Hop head, or just wanting to learn more about the culture, this is the place to be! Great info, legit landmarks, and all hosted by a true OG in the game. New York IS the birthplace of Hip Hop, and this tour will show you where it all began.

All Love,

Well thought out and executed, great tour of Harlem and the Bronx taking in key hip hop places of interest. We did stop at plenty of places but if I'm being picky I would probably would have liked to have got out at 1 or 2 that I thought were quite important.

Overall really good fun though and would certainly recommend. On the lunch version we went for the lunch comes at the end, which is a bit strange. Not because the tour is too long (perfect duration I'd say) but because why have a lunch if it's the end of the tour anyway? It does provide a central point to eat in Harlem for those who might not otherwise venture there. Very minor point though.

If you're in New York and have even a passing interest in hip hop I would certainly advise going on the tour.

Tip: sit on the right hand side of the bus - a few more of the places you don't get out for are more easily visible on that side.
