Greenwich Village Tour
- Small group
- Duration: 2 hours
This was such a great thing to do!! The Christmas light displays in Dyker Heights are absolutely gorgeous. Pick up point in Manhattan is very easily reached,it’s right at the pedestrian area directly across from Macy’s . There are lots of tables and chairs and if you’d like to sit and wait and also lots to see within a few minutes walk. Drop off was at the Lotte Palace Hotel in Midtown, but they also stopped along the way if you needed to get off before that. Our guide was Fred. He was so good! Native New Yorker so he had lots of interesting stories about the history of the different areas that we drive through. Bus was very clean and comfortable. We had gorgeous weather for this and it’s something not to be missed. Hats off to the residents of Dyker Heights. It can not be easy putting up with the enormous amount of people that descend on that beautiful neighborhood every year,but clearly they want everyone to have a wonderful time.
A really great experience. I encountered a group of people from Greece, Australia and Italy. Our guide Steven was really entertaining and very friendly. We learned about the history of Washington Square Park, Stone Wall, several old residences, the location of the “Friends” apartment from the TV show, the skinniest building in New York, the location and history of the Triangle shirt waist fire.... where all the neat jazz and comedy clubs were in the area.... the list goes on! I highly recommend this tour!
Kevin was an amazing tour guide. He was very informative and very friendly. He was able to communicate effectively with customers from 5 or 6 counties and brought us all together as a group. My wife uses a wheelchair and he was able to work the tour so we covered everything in the Village and felt accommodated. He is the best tour guide I have ever had anywhere in the world. The Greenwich Village tour was the highlight of our trip to NYC.
Immerse yourself in the ever-present culture as you stroll down bohemian streets and imagine a life where poets, artists, writers, and activists converged at the most unlikely, yet likely places. Follow a knowledgeable and charming guide who draws you into the past with captivating stories and the sights to match. Not to be missed!
The tour was fantastic. Both our guide and our driver were excellent. Especially as we had my daughter in a wheelchair and they couldn't do enough to make sure that she enjoyed the experience as much as everyone else. Very much appreciated. Thank you
