Excellent! Sam, our tour guide was very knowledgeable, dramatic in much of her presentation, answered relevant and random questions, and just delightful to have as a guide. We would use Sam again if we could choose.

Would give Daniel 10- stars if that were an option. Professional, knowledgeable, flexible; think of any positive superlative and it would apply.

James was great! We’ve done other tours, and he showed us new places. The tour is both a great overview of the Village and lots of specific stories. James was very knowledgeable and was able to tailor his tour to our interests.

Patrick was a wonderful tour guide! I live in Greenwich Village but wanted to learn more about the history while my parents were in town. Patrick was friendly, knowledgeable, energetic, and had a good sense of humor. I enjoyed the stops we made and the interesting stories. I would recommend this tour with Patrick!

My tour guide, Ricky, was wonderful. He enjoyed sharing the stories of every place we visited. He was enthusiastic and passionate. I got immersed in the tales. He took the time to make sure I had a great experience and covered everything mentioned in the overview of the tour. I highly recommend him. :)

Liz was wonderful! She was so knowledgeable about the places she showed us and was great about letting us stop in a shop for the best cappuccino we have ever had! My daughter and I both agree our walking tour of Greenwich Village was one of our favorite things about our NYC trip! We highly recommend Liz!

Excellent Experience

My husband and I did a walking tour of Greenwich Village. The booking process was great. Very easy to navigate and your provided a lot of information and details so you know what to expect. Our tour guide was Patrick who was amazing. So much energy and character and genuine enthusiasm for his job even on the very very cold day we went. Being a Floridian single digits with the wind made us miserable but listening to Patrick helped take our mind off the cold. He had so many fun and interesting stories and we learned so much. Next time we go back to New York we will definitely be booking another tour.

Although I have lived and worked in NYC, there's nothing quite like a guided walking tour. James had us fascinated with the history of the many blocks that create Greenwich Village. Want to know about the 1911 Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire? Did you know early villagers buried the dead in Washington Square Park? And, how about the writers and musicians of the Beat Generation who hung out there? Our tour reflected on that special era. Thank you, James.
