One of the best ways to spend a Saturday. I loved our tour guides. They were knowledgeable and played off each other nicely. Not only did they give GV a historical context, they even recited some poem/verses from the writers they were talking about. I've...More

The Greenwich Village Literary Pub Crawl is the perfect combination of educational and fun! Each of the stops along the tour are so well researched and deeply interesting - they don't just tell you the basic facts of the NYC Village - but you're learning...More

A really fun tour. It covers some of the lesser known writers as well of some of the more famous ones and the guides were knowledgeable and engaging. Would definitely recommend it.

I’ve spent more time than I can remember in the West Village and this enjoyable and informative tour made me realize how little I knew. Our guides, Marissa and Malika were well-informed, well-read, very engaging, and made it all the more rewarding. And while I...More

Our guides were very personable and pleasant. Unfortunately the material lacked substance and interest. So much more could have been said about the authors and area, there was a lot of silence.

My daughter had just moved to Greenwich Village, and I wanted her to learn the literary background of her new home. The Crawl was excellent, and turned us onto Chumley's, where we later had a most memorable dinner.

This tour will take you to parts of Greenwich Village you would not find on your own. Learn the history and see the famous and infamous buildings in this part of New York.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
