Greenwich Village

14th Street and West of Broadway, New York City, 10012

The Basics

As one of Manhattan’s top destinations, Greenwich Village is a stop on most hop-on hop-off bus tours, which allow visitors to explore at their own pace without the hassle of navigating.

Private tours provide a more intimate experience, allowing guests to tack a stroll through Greenwich Village onto the day’s customized itinerary.

Greenwich Village food tours showcase the area’s array of hidden gems and independent eateries and typically include a selection of food and drink tastings. While daytime tours provide the best views of the High Line, Washington Square Park, and the Hudson River, evening walking tours and ghost tours offer a fresh perspective on the city illuminated under the night sky.

Our tour guide was very personable, , knowledgeable, funny and a great story teller. She made sure everyone was informed about safety procedures and made sure the group didn't get separated.

Artistic, Alternative Greenwich Village Walking Tour
Helene was a wonderful and enthusiastic guide...we were glad we did this tour. I would say it was more focused on the general history of Greenwich Village rather than the artistic and alternative history but that did not at all detract from the experience. I would recommend this tour!

Bob Dylan’s Village

Greenwich Village was not always an upscale neighborhood dotted with celebrity condos and boutiques. Steeped in 1960s counterculture, the Village was once a hub for artists, musicians, writers, and creatives, including Bob Dylan, Allen Ginsberg, Annie Leibovitz, and Joan Baez. Walking tours often highlight historic landmarks and these iconic figures’ former haunts, which visitors often miss if exploring on their own.
