Local actors take you on a fascinating tour of Greenwich Village bars rich with literary history. While you relax over a drink, they'll weave tales of the pubs, the neighborhood, and the writers who helped shape it. With in depth and ongoing research we've dispelled much of the misinformation shared by other tours. We're the oldest and most accurate in Greenwich. And the most fun. And the cutest. Passionate recitations, charmingly dashing guides, and a buttload* of wit - (*is an actual form of measurement for alcohol. 1 butt load = 126 gallons or 2 hogshead)

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.

Had a wonderful time. Great way to see the city, have a beer or three and learn about some famous authors' watering holes. I would highly recommend this.

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
