On a sweltering New York July morning/afternoon, Bobby Pin(n) took us on a fabulous tour of some iconic East Village rock and punk sites. Informative and interesting; Bobby really knows his stuff. Unfortunately there was nothing he could do about the heat! Fun fact: an egg cream has neither egg nor cream in it.

I met up with Bobby Pinn and a few other people for this tour. Loved that I got to experience first hand the sites from bands like Led Zeppelin (Physical Graffiti... More

My son is in college and was working in NYC for the summer. We are both fairly into rock music etc. During a weekend visit we decided to try this tour. We both thoroughly enjoyed a quick tour around the rock sites of the East Village.. Filmore East, CBGB etc. It's unfortunately not what it used to be, but it... More

The two hour walk flew by thanks to Bobby Pin's knowledge of the area, he asks the group straight away what your favourite bands from the area are and tailored the tour accordingly. You get a 15% discount at the fabulous Trash and Vaudeville store to use after the tour is finished. A wonderful way to spend your Saturday morning... More

Met up with Bobby Pinn and 3 other people for the Junket on a cool December day. It was neat to see the places I had read about or seen on album covers. Bobby had great stories of each venue and the background of who played and lived the life. Iggy playing even when the power was cut off by... More

If you are into New York City rock and roll history from the 60s, 70s, 80's and 90's you would enjoy this tour. My husband and I loved the tour. Bobby Pinn is a great tour guide full of interesting and fun info. We really enjoyed spending the 2 hours with him. At the end of the tour he even... More

My son and I took both available walking tours during our recent visit to NYC. Both Bobby ( East Village tour ) and Larry ( Greenwich Village tour ) were a delight. 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
