Greenwich Village 2 hour Walking Tour
LOVED it! Ashley, the guide, was amazing! She had great knowledge and energy and totally made the tour. I am telling my friends to take this tour. There is so much to learn and see in GV.

Greenwich Village Walking History
A fantastic two hour walking tour, in a small group, with Nathan as our host. As we walked through the streets of famous musicians, artists, actors and other notable people Nathan brought history vividly to life with his enthusiasm and fantastic knowledge of the area. If you love the legends of stage, screen and the history of the counter culture of New York, this is a must do.

Meeting point

How much walking is there?

There’s 2-3 miles of walking at a moderate pace.

Is this tour included with a pass?

Yes, this tour is included with a pass. You’ll need to make a reservation with your credit card on our New York pass page, and choose the pass you have. No charges will apply as long as you bring a valid pass. Pass holders can reschedule as long as your pass is valid for the day of the tour. If your pass is no longer valid on your rescheduled tour date, you’ll be charged for the tour.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We understand plans change. You can always change your tour 24 hours or more before you tour. We offer a 100% refund up to 24 hours prior to your tour start time. Within 24 hours of your tour, we would have incurred hard costs and therefore cannot allow rescheduling or cancellation without costs.

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early. The tour starts promptly, and you may not be able to catch up if you arrive late.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund.

Are gratuities included?

Tips are always appreciated but never expected. They’re a great way to tell your guide they did an awesome job and show your appreciation.
