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

We meet at the southwest corner of Waverly Place and 6th Avenue.

FAQs

How much walking is there?

There are 2-3 miles of walking at a leisurely pace.

What is the rescheduling policy?

We are aware that plans might change. You may easily change your tour up to 24 hours before departure. We provide a 100% refund up to 24 hours before the start of your tour. 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?

Prepare to arrive 15 minutes early. The trip begins immediately, and if you come late, you may not be able to catch up.

What if it rains?

Our tours go on rain or shine, so please check the weather forecast before you go. If we have to cancel due to severe weather conditions, we will give you the option to reschedule or get 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.
