Bobby Pinn is an excellent guide and is clearly passionate about what he does and enjoys sharing his great stories and insight into the East Village music history scene. What a great way to enjoy and appreciate this neighbourhood! Not... More

Both are incredibly knowledgable, very personable and in short,a pleasure to spend time with...... If you have any interest in music these are THE tours for you. My... More

If you are into any New York rock or punk scene from the 70s 80s e.g. The Ramones, The New York Dolls, Blondie, The Dictators etc you must do this tour. It was one of the best things we did on our New York trip. Bobby who runs the tours is not only very informative about the music but all... More

Music and rock n roll specifically has been a passion for me since high school. Since I have seriously listened to music and read books about music history for over 30 years, I was a little skeptical about this tour. I thought I knew enough for this tour to be a bore. I was wrong. Bobby has done an amazing... More

Bobby is good as a tour guide and with small groups you get a more personable tour, which is always better I think. There's some history that he talks about that the majority of people would know, but he spends a fair amount of time on artists that were big in East Village, but not really anywhere else. I would...

My husband and I honeymooned in NYC in July, and this was BY FAR our favorite tour of the trip! Bobby was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. It was an experience we will remember forever and ever! If you are ever in NYC and you love music, you MUST take this tour!!! You will not be disappointed!
