This was my 2nd Hush Tour - did the bus one with Grandmaster Caz up around Harlem and the Bronx 2 years ago. As a hip-hop head since 1986, it's a true honor to have some of hip-hop's pioneers giving a tour of important locations that includes their own lived experiences of the earliest days of the culture. Reggie Reg of the Crash Crew was our guide, and knows almost everyone in the neighborhoods we walked through! Of course, he knows the hip-hop history too because he helped make it!! Highly recommended, and honestly it needs to be an essential part of any hip-hop fan's trip to New York! Salute, Reggie Reg! Respect due

Rayz was an awesome and entertaining guide. It was great to learn about the history of the neighborhood in addition to hip hop which makes it a good tour for hip hop lovers and their friends/family. We loved our tour with Hush and so far it is one of our favorite parts of our trip!

Just 2 days before this tour - I was told the Monday 9/16 tour was cancelled due to "unforeseen circumstances." Was asked if I could attend Sunday (we could not). Refund was given, but that really messed up our one and only day in NYC, and I had spent a lot of time researching and planning our visit around this tour, so it was very disappointing. Not even a good explanation given or even some additional compensation beyond the refund for our troubles. Disappointing.
