It was a true privilege to have Steve as our tour guide. Having lived in the village for more than 40 years, his insights are unique and backed up by first hand experience living and working in the area. He also knows the history and can provide interesting facts and stories that allow tourists to grasp the evolution of the village and more broadly the city. Highly recommend Steve for this tour!

My wife and I were visiting NYC for our wedding anniversary and booked this walking tour as were big music fans and love creative culture. Steve was our local guide and was fantastic! His stories about his life in Greenwich Village were amazing and his conversational style was engaging and fascinating! He’s been in the music industry for years and so he knows the inside stories that other guides may not. The tour covered everything that we’d read about and were considering touring ourselves, but we’re so glad that we chose to do the tour instead. Don’t look anywhere else, just hit the streets with Steve!

Steve was a fantastic tour guide! It was brilliant to get a tour from a local who has so much insiders insight into Greenwich village. He told some brilliant stories and gave a great in-depth history of Greenwich while also telling us about modern day Greenwich. Really enjoyed how personalised the tour was and how personable and professional he was. Would 100% recommend!

Steve was knowledgeable and humorous. The tour itself was comprehensive, entertaining, and had something for everyone. Although I expected a bit more art history & stories about the artists, Steve told us about the artistic places that we could spend more time exploring.

This was an even better experience than expected. Steve our tour guide, a 40 year resident from this neighbourhood himself, with a professional background in the entertainment business, was outstanding. He had the right balance of fun and content and his genuine passion for Greenwich Village was contagious. Highly recommend.

This tour was truly excellent. Greenwich is a beautiful area with a rich and vibrant history, as our guide Steve really made this a top notch experience. A resident of Greenwich for 40 years his insight is fascinating, and his passion and enthusiasm for the area clear. Not only do I highly recommend this tour, but I recommend trying to get onto a tour led by Steve specifically, as I think he is probably unbeatable.

By far the best Experience First tour we went on during our trip. Steve was extremely knowledgeable about the area and really gave us a great insight into what it's like to live in Greenwich Village and how it has changed over time. Steve was genuinely passionate about his job and making the tour a great experience for everyone. Would highly recommend this tour!

I booked this tour because I wanted to take my daughter to the Stonewall Inn. I never imagined that Steve, our guide is just a genuine guy who grew up in New York and knows about the original Greenwich Village and how it has changed throughout the decades. He has lived in the area for over 40 years so I highly recommend this tour with Amazing Steve. He talks about everything from when the settlers came into this country to who lives here now and why. Later that day we learned Taylor Swift, who we love, owns an apartment on Cornelia St. You will love this tour and will be one of the most memorable things you do while visiting NY.

Just returned from New York where we had a fantastic tour with Experience. On Sunday, we visited Greenwich village with Steve, who was extremely knowledgeable, informative and very honest about this area. This tour added to the enjoyment of our visit to New York and would thoroughly recommend using this company and their tour guides
